Mexican beer Dos Equis is getting in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo by adding three more Xs to its can.

Cinco Equis finds the Mexican flag colors backing five big Xs on the can, and the brand is promoting the stunt with some humorous, profanity-bleeped videos with Workaholics star Blake Anderson. The comedian and actor is appearing in two cheeky new videos created in partnership with Funny Or Die. The videos pay homage to the often misunderstood holiday and the unmistakably literal meaning of Cinco Equis.

Cinco Equis was created by Droga5 and Funny or Die as part of the Dos Equis ‘Keep It Interesante’ campaign, which encourages the act of taking a morsel of truth and enhancing a story for the sake of keeping friends entertained and engaged. By adding more Xs and unofficially claiming the throne of official beer of Cinco de Mayo, the beloved Mexican beer brand is wearing that embellishment on its can.
