Narrator

I don't always Describe Topics Here, but when I do, it's on TV Tropes.

The Most Interesting Man In The World is an ad campaign for Dos Equis beer which began airing in the United States and Canada in 2006. It features a distinguished older gentleman who is quite the fascinating fellow, a classier version of the Chuck Norris Facts Meme, with strong overtones of Ernest Hemingway (er, if Hemingway were Hispanic). The above narration is only some of his purported acts. He is portrayed by Jonathan Goldsmith, a prolific character actor with credits going back to the '60s.

Jonathan Goldsmith's iteration of the character was retired in March 2016, as the Most Interesting Man in the World left on a one-way trip to Mars. Watch his journey to the final frontier here. He was succeeded by Augustin Legrand.

This Meme provides examples of:


Waldorf: Should we stay thirsty?
Statler: I would. It's better than drinking any of THIS swill!
Both: Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!
