You know the most interesting man in the world retired, right?
Yes, the silver-haired fox that was the face behind Dos Equis passed the baton to another interesting individual while he went off to explore Mars.
When Mr. Jonathan Goldsmith took his last sip of Dos Equis and made it back down to earth, he continued speaking up for Siberian tigers and donating money to the Morris Animal Foundation in Colorado, which does research to prevent and cure cancer in dogs.
The most interesting man in the world has a voice that’s recognizable anywhere and he uses it (and money) to help animals, wildlife and children. However, his voice is still needed to educate people about animal abuse, spaying and neutering and responsible pet ownership.
There’s many beer drinkers all over the world who would gladly listen to him versus a Peta commercial. Even ones ran by the Humane Society of the United States may not reach the people that need to hear the message and hey, Sarah McLachlan is great but her tear-jerker songs may not incite someone to step up and take action.
