Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man in the World

Prior to reading Seth Stevenson’s article on the Dos Equis commercials I had no clue that they existed.  How glad I am now to know that I live in such a world where they exist.  They are wonderfully awesome!

Enjoy

The article points out that the commercials owe some homage to Wes Anderson and his aesthetic, and I would say that a bit of the humor is comparable to the Chuck Norris Facts. I would also argue that the Most Interesting Man in the World may be related Esteban Vihaio

Sure, the Most Interesting Man appears to have pursued some more constructive outlets than Vihaio (Esteban seems to be able to claim pimping, creating an army of orphans, and cutting up people’s faces) but the two strike me as having a similar style and probably an appreciation for the finer things in life.

Once again, so so awesome! Actually makes me want a Dos Equis, which really is not all that awesome.

Update: By request and obvious insight of Evan perhaps the best of all the commercials is this one.
