The Most Interesting Man in the World is retiring . . .

Continuing the discussion from Is Miller Lite about to die?:

Dos Equis is retiring The Most Interesting Man in the World, an iconic ad campaign if ever there was!

Some of the best lines (IMHO):

  • He gave his father “the talk”
  • When he drives a car off the lot, its price increases in value
  • His 5 de Mayo party starts on the 8th of March
  • His feet don’t get blisters, but his shoes do
  • He once went to the psychic, to warn her
  • If he were to punch you in the face you would have to fight off a strong urge to thank him
  • He can speak Russian… in French
  • He never says something tastes like chicken… not even chicken
  • Superman has pijamas with his logo
  • The circus ran away to join him
  • He has never waited 15 minutes after finishing a meal before returning to the pool
  • If he were to visit the dark side of the moon, it wouldn’t be dark
  • He once won a staring contest with his own reflection
  • Sharks have a week dedicated to him
  • He lives vicariously through himself
  • He once taught a german shepherd how to bark in spanish
  • He bowls overhand
  • In museums, he is allowed to touch the art
  • He is allowed to talk about the fight club
  • He once won the Tour-de-France, but was disqualified for riding a unicycle
  • His lovemaking has been detected by a seismograph
  • He has won the lifetime achievement award… twice
  • If opportunity knocks, and he’s not at home, opportunity waits
  • He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels
  • Mosquitoes refuse to bite him purely out of respect
  • Once while sailing around the world, he discovered a short cut
  • When in Rome, they do as HE does
  • The police often question him, just because they find him interesting
  • He is the life of parties that he has never attended

While I will be sad to see him go, I guess it is time, he has been around for a long time now.
