The Most Interesting Man in the World had some rather interesting news today: He’s retiring. To Mars.
Dos Equis will reveal the next Most Interesting Man later this year, but Jonathan Goldsmith raised his glass one last time before embarking on his one-way “Mission to Mars.” In preparation for this extraordinary journey, The Most Interesting Man will be giving away his coveted collection of worldly possessions including the tuxedo he wore to his last Masquerade, his Spanish guitar and matching mariachi suit, and even his astronaut suit from his 2010 stratosphere. More details are to come in early April. In the meantime, Dos Equis conducted some research that shows that 72 percent of men describe themselves as interesting today, but are not satisfied, since 83 percent of them want to live an even more interesting life.
