Dos Equis has released a feature film-style trailer, titled “Cantina,” offering a look at the new "Most Interesting Man in the World" (portrayed by actor Augustin Legrand).
The Traktor collective directed this teaser for Havas Worldwide New York.
Beyond a new face, the creative look and feel will continue to evolve, as the character’s adventures unfold in real time and viewers are brought into the action. “It’s the beginning of a new era of interesting. With 'The Most Interesting Man' not just telling us about his adventures, but inviting us to be part of them,” said Toygar Bazarkaya, chief creative officer of the Americas at Havas. In the coming months, fans 21+ will have the opportunity to experience versions of the Most Interesting Man’s latest exploits for themselves, with their friends.
On October 19, synced with Dos Equis’ College Football Playoff sponsorship, the brand will fully reveal the new "Most Interesting Man" with a vignette-style commercial. The October launch will be supported by social integrations on Snapchat, including a national lens available for College Football Game Day, Saturday, October 22.
