Doctor Who thing of the day: the Most Interesting Man in the Universe

UPDATED: I am informed by @DoctorLongscarf that he is the creator of the hashtag #TheMostInterestingManInTheUniverse, which I did not note here (because I was unaware of this fact). Also, two of the tweets I attributed to other tweeters were actually written by @DoctorLongscarf and merely retweeted. These tweets were not, however, formatted as retweets, and were in no way indicated to be retweets, so I had no way of knowing they were retweets. I have corrected the attributions below.

Have you seen the Dos Equis “The Most Interesting Man in the World” ads? (I believe they air only in the U.S. and Canada.) Here’s one:

“He can speak French… in Russian.” *snort*

“He is the life of parties he has never attended.” Love. It.

These ads are so clever and so funny that I actually get excited when I see that there’s a new one. Oh, okay, one more:

“At museums, he’s allowed to touch the art.” Tee-hee!

Anyway, that’s all prologue to this: Doctor Who fans on Twitter have been having fun with the hashtag #TheMostInterestingManInTheUniverse. Some samples:

The Daleks never shoot him on sight because they want to see what he’ll do to them next. He is #TheMostInterestingManintheUniverse
