The Famous Dos Equis Most Interesting Man in the World Commercial - Is He All That?

Updated on August 12, 2016

Dos Equis' Most Interesting Man IS All That!

The announcer declares, 'He is the most interesting man in the world,' just before Jonathan Goldsmith, surrounded by two gorgeous women, is introduced. He ends the now famous Dos Equis commercial on a close-up, saying "stay thirsty my friends."

The most interesting man in the world was born Jonathan Lippe on September 26, 1938 in New York City, USA. His screen name is Jonathan Goldsmith and his suave looks and smooth delivery of my opening hub line used at the end of the world famous Dos Equis beer commercial has made him an iconic American figure.

His off-screen life would most definitely qualify him as being quite interesting as well.

He currently lives on a beautiful, large boat parked in the azure, crystal pure waters at the harbor off Marina Del Ray, California. His off-screen life mimics his TV commercial persona and he has enjoyed a long career working in movies and television. In fact, he says his best friend, the late Fernando Lamas, influenced the look and feel of his cool Dos Equis line deliveries.

His film credits include: Hang 'Em High
L.A. Dragnet
All That Glitters
Dangerous Women
Murder She Wrote
Highway to Heaven
Magnum P.I.

Goldsmith is a retired millionaire. He made his fortune running a personal business based in New York. He sold the business for a return to Hollywood in 1998.

The Most Interesting Mystique and Success

This particular Dos Equis TV commercial began running on American television screens in 2006 and was conceived by the marketing agency, Euro RSCG.

Euro RSCG reports that American sales of Dos Equis beer grew each year between the years 2006-2010, while Canadians consumed the imported beer 3 times the country's norm in 2008. Overall, this 5 year period saw Dos Equis sell 22% more than ALL other imported beers.

Very recently, Goldsmith was enjoying dinner at a posh California restaurant when a middle-aged man and his young son approached the actor. When asked what he wanted to achieve in life, the young boy brashly eyed Goldsmith and said, "I want to be the most interesting man in the world."

Enough said!
