    Jonathan Goldsmith at 77 appears in his final commercial. He was a little known character actor when he was hired. I read one post where someone said he made $7 million last year from the commercials. From his IMDB listings he has worked pretty steady since the early sixties.

    One of the dumbest TV ads ever -- and now I have to know he made $7 million from them? End of days. (Said like Myrna tells Oscar "Feet of clay," for Odd Couple fans :))

    I don't always post on internet forums but when I do, it's at The Dawg Shed. Stay thirsty my friends.

    He did an interview on Stern years ago and said nothing of interest. So boring trying to rightfully protect that goldgoose.

    Great spots, and I'm sure they got the company what they wanted when they started them.
    For people to try their beer. We've definitely sold more of it in the last 4 years or so, since they started.

    That's not true. The ad campaign is ending and they are moving on to something else.

    "Executives from Heineken USA, which owns Dos Equis, told Ad Age that the ad campaign will continue with a new actor."

    I don't always correct the OP twice in the same thread but when I do ...

    That beer was cool in Manhattan in the late '80s. Now, not so much.

    He was on Corollas podcast years ago, I remember Adam saying his wife would tell him what to say and what not to say during the interview. The next day Adam said "the most interesting man in the world is also the most pussy whipped man in the world " :jj:
