Apparently the “Most Interesting Man in the World,” or Jonathan Goldsmith, supports President Barack Obama for reelection this November, because he’s hosting a fundraiser for the commander-in-chief.
According to The Washington Post, Goldsmith, the actor who plays the so-called “Most Interesting Man in the World” in the famous advertisements for the beer Dos Equis, will host an Obama fundraiser next Tuesday in Burlington, Vermont. The Post adds that this event is an apt addition to the many beer-related moments in Obama’s presidency.
As Mashable points out, Goldsmith’s alter ego is not only famous for his appearances in the Dos Equis ads, but also for a popular internet meme which offers variations of the character’s well-known catchphrase, “I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.”
In fact, the “Most Interesting Man in the World” meme has even been used by conservatives to attack President Obama. This summer a conservative group created a video against Obama called “The Most Arrogant Man in the World.” The video replaced the "Most Interesting Man’s" send-off “Stay thirsty, my friends” with “Stay ignorant, my friends,” in addition to other twists on the commercials’ format.
Ticket prices for Goldsmith’s event range from $50 to $500.
