Do Eko And I Have What It Takes To Model For GQ?

While flipping through GQ magazine in a barbershop a few months ago I noticed that one spread seemed to use Eko and me for inspiration.  Recently I did some research and found that, not surprisingly, man’s best friend has a long history of being featured in the iconic men’s magazine.

Now, there is no way I’m cool enough to make it on the cover of a 1958 GQ cover, but thankfully the magazine has changed its requirements for human/canine tandem models.  Instead of classy and cool, ridiculous and absurd is in vogue.  Check out the below cover for GQ in Germany.

Even if I spoke German, I don’t think it would help this cover make any more sense

Ridiculousness and absurdity are the top two skills I list on my resume, so these new canine fashion sensibilities are right in my wheelhouse.  Fashion changes quickly though – Eko and I needed to strike while the iron is hot.  We spent the morning shooting GQ inspired photos to send the magazine as our resume.  Here is our version of the above cover.

Look at that poor pup hanging on for its dear life!  GQ you don’t need a handsome Italian man with perfect teeth and this terrified little pup.  You need Will and Eko!

Minus the perfect hair, handsome looks and impeccable style, I have everything that Italian guy does.  And look at Eko, he already has the model poses down

GQ, you need action shots? No problem!

Don’t mind Eko’s unimpressed looks, I’m actually an outstanding jumper

I’ve mailed our photos to the editors at GQ and expect to hear back within the hour.  Modeling talent like ours gets snatched up pretty quickly.  I promise Eko and I won’t forget you all when we make it big!

      • I know that look, Mohave use to give it to me all the time. He was especially embarrassed when I made him wear his purple fairy costume. It has a garland headpiece and ribbons that hung around his face and purple wings that lit up.. He wore it to the Renaissance Faire one year and got a lot of flack for it. But for the most part he got a lot of pictures taken of him. He was a good sport, I sure do miss him.

  1. Lol. I think you and Eko would be extremely great subjects on any magazine cover:) I loved the pictures, although, and this is just me, but I think Eko is a little confused on the last picture as exactly what is that that you are trying to accomplish, but he seems to be ok going along with your photo shoot:) Great pictures
