I couldn’t really resist doing this post today. By now, you may have heard that the Dos Equis man is, well, “retiring”? I don’t think the most interesting man in the world actually retires. But, at least the actor portraying him, Jonathan Goldsmith, will be stepping down as “the most interesting man” and making room for a new face.

I don’t drink beer, but if I did, it would be Dos Equis. The “most interesting man in the world” commercials have been witty, interesting, funny and engaging – excellent examples of hitting the right tone with the right content.

In honor of Jonathan Goldsmith, I’m going to post some of the best one liners from the commercials here. But first, check out my compilation video on YouTube, which include some of the most interesting commercials in the world!
