Levi’s Presents Hottest Abe Lincoln (41 of 54)


Weekly Directive:  RESPONSIBLE

When I think of responsibility, I picture the past leaders of our nation.  Abraham Lincoln stands out in my mind. He fought and died to abolish slavery, which was responsible for his death. I guess it’s true that responsibility just leads to more responsibility.  What if instead of his signature stove-top hat, Lincoln wore Signature Levi’s? I remember playing with Lincoln Logs in elementary school and making Abraham Lincoln crafts out of construction paper.  Instead of a black stove-top hat and a beard, he’d be remembered for his Levi’s jeans and would thus have a more clean-cut look about him.  Honest Abe would’ve been hottest Abe and wouldn’t have wasted time chopping down the cherry tree like Washington. Hottest Abe would’ve torched that sucker! Like James Dean, in “Rebel Without a Cause,” he would have set off a slave rebellion, and definitely wouldn’t have gotten “popped” by John Wilkes Booth that infamous night at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. Hottest Abe would’ve been packing heat, or been somewhere cooler than a play house.  He’d would’ve gone out like  a rock star and  been remembered as the hottest forefather of our nation.
