The Most Interesting Man In The Universe...

...Is of course The Doctor.

The site Flick Filosopher has picked on a gag trending on Twitter that has some wonderful riffs on the "Most Interesting Man In The World" advertising campaign by the company that bottles Dos Equis brand beer. In the ads a suave man has outrageous claims made about his 'coolness' and the amazing, often comic and silly things he has done. The character is never named, but claims are such things as “He can speak French... in Russian.” “He is the life of parties he has never attended.” “At museums, he’s allowed to touch the art.”

Here's one of the commercials as an example of the meme:

On Twitter the hashtag #TheMostInterestingManInTheUniverse has been coined for a similar meme concerning the Doctor. A few samples:

On a bad day he once rebooted the universe. He is #TheMostInterestingManInTheUniverse.
