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!

    Rigby, Muffin and I are rooting for you!!!

  2. Aud says:

    Haaa, you are way too funny!! Definitely, you should submit your profolio with all the pix you posted here to GQ. If you are rejected, at least, Eko will, for sure, grace their front cover.

  3. Alyssa says:

    You guys are TOO FUNNY! I just literally started laughing out loud in class reading this post!! My professor and classmates may think Im a little crazy!

  4. LOL Absolutely, we’re behind you!! 😀

  6. Marcela says:

    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

  7. You have to admit the look on Eko’s face is priceless!

  8. OMD this was laugh out loud funny! I love the one where Eko has the sunglasses on! I bet you will hear back from them!

  9. kdkh says:

    I’m sure you’ve already gotten your call by now! I don’t know why Eko isn’t more impressed with your jumping!

  10. oh yes of course!!! last picture is just priceless – thanks for make me laughing ;o)

  11. Clowie says:

    There should be a vote – and then you two would be on the cover!

  12. You guys are going to be stars for sure!

  13. onebluedog says:

    You guys look way cooler than all those models. You should be getting a call from GQ any day now!

  14. Your a shoe in Will (paw in Eko)….We already know why those models looks so darn perfect, maybe their canine friends are airbrushed too….we mere mortals think you’re both adorable, good luck, I’m sure your phone will be ringing any moment now.

  15. Laughing, crying. My wife thinks I’ve gone off the deep end.

  16. We think that Eko might need more of an editorial input in future. His look says a lot 😉 Super photo shoot though guys and the fun just shines through!

  17. Island Life says:

    LOL Oh yeah those pics will def get you guys on several covers, looks like a great time!!

  18. I love your sense of humour and your ever-patient dog. You two have such a great time together.

  19. Eleenie says:

    Hahaha! Just so you know though, speaking as a Brit, Robbie Williams is cool and no matter what he does or how tacky it appears, he can do no wrong. If i’m realistic and honest though, I have no idea what that cover is about either?!
