CBS News – A Washington State Patrol trooper says the effort is by far the best carpool scam he’s seen, but it didn’t work.

A motorcycle trooper waiting along Interstate 5 near Tacoma on Monday afternoon spotted a driver and a rather unusual “passenger” pass by him in the carpool lane.

When the trooper stopped the car, he discovered the “passenger” was a cardboard cutout of the actor who portrays “The Most Interesting Man in the World” in Dos Equis beer commercials.

The driver’s said, “He’s my best friend.”

The Most Interesting Man was not confiscated, but the driver was told not to use him again. The driver was also ticketed.
