The “Most Interesting Man in the World” has a real threat.

Drake and his father poke fun at the Dos Equis character in new ads for the musician’s whiskey, Virginia Black. A pair of 15-second commercials debuted on the artist’s Instagram page on Sunday.

Donning a black turtleneck and gold chain, Drake says the “Realest Dude Ever,” played by his dad Dennis Graham, isn’t worried about the “Most Interesting Man in the World.” The ads end with his father delivering could be the next viral booze slogan: “Virginia Black: One sip, and woo!”

The Grammy-winning musician invested in the whiskey company with the goal to “redefine whiskey and a shared passion for style, music and the pursuit of taste,” People reports.

Last year, the actor who played the “Most Interesting Man World” for nearly a decade, Jonathan Goldsmith, was replaced by a younger actor. Goldsmith recently took a shot at his former Dos Equis character in an ad for a tequila company that he’s invested in.
