Before we had Flo from Progressive, the flip-flopping “Can You Hear Me Now?” guy and the hot brunette in a blue shirt from AT&T, there was only one meme-worthy ad spokesperson: The Most Interesting Man in the World.
So, while it took nearly half a year, Dos Equis have finally announced 77-year-old Jonathan Goldsmith’s replacement, who they introduced to the world today in a 34-second YouTube clip. His name is Augustin LeGrand. He’s French. And he looks like Michael Phelps with a beard.
Although he’ll officially take over his new role during an extended commercial October 19th, the 41-year-old Legrand — who was born in France but speaks both English and Spanish — looks like he’ll be more than capable of reminding a new generation of friends how to stay thirsty.
