Who Is Your Mr Movember?
By: Steve on November 16, 2011
November has effectively been rebranded as Movember by an organisation that raises funds for The Institute of Cancer Research and The Prostate Cancer Charity through the sponsored growth of manly moustache’s.
We’ve been active supporters of the Movember movement for several years and we currently have a team of four who are bravely risking facial ridicule every day of this month in support of the Movember.
We’re midway through the month and morale is beginning to ebb, so to rally their enthusiasm I asked the team who their Mr Movember that they turn to for inspiration.
“Jason Lee. He’s always got a ‘tache and it always looks good. He’s just cool. Actually, the first time I saw him was in Vanilla Sky and he didn’t have a ‘tache in that. But with the ‘tache, I would.”
“Also he does a great voice for Syndrome in The Incredibles. And I just found out he has his own skateboard line called Stereo Sound Agency. That’s very cool.”
“Mr Depp. J-Depp. Actually, he’s not really my hero. He’s my wife’s hero, and by default that makes him my hero.
“But if I was to choose it would have to be Tom Selleck. His is the epitome of a moustache. He is Magnum PI. But Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit, that’s a good moustache. In fact, as a child, I used to get Selleck and Reynolds confused. I thought they were one and the same.”
“So yeah, Johnny Depp.”
“Honestly, I’ve always been envious of the ‘tache that Kenneth Branagh sports in his movie adaptation of Hamlet. A ‘tache on its own is a very hard thing to pull off. Not literally, but…no wait, yeah it is hard to pull off, both literally and figuratively, but that’s way besides the point…
My point is I’m just not beefy enough to sport a singular moustache and the dairylea triangularity of Branagh’s soul-patch just ties the whole look together and stops him looking like Ian Beale in the late ’80s.”
At the time of writing our colleague and fellow Mo-Bro is in Uganda and unavailable for comment so, in his absence, we’ve talked it over and chosen his Moustache hero for him:

Our Executive Creative Director Gareth Mapp is not participating this year but he wanted me to share with you that from the age of 4 he’s had the itch to grow a ‘twsh’ that he attributes to Asterix, his favourite bedtime read.
