The mustache that brought DC’s CGI team to its knees has finally been defeated.
Earlier today, a clean-shaven Henry Cavill posted an Instagram video in memory of Kingstash — the mustache he’d grown out for Mission: Impossible ― Fallout.
“Hello, don’t be alarmed,” Cavill says into the camera. “I know, it’s hard to recognize me without Kingstash. Sometimes, I even have trouble recognizing myself.”
The 34-year-old actor also poked fun at the subpar stache removal from last year’s Justice League.
“It’s hard for me to admit this is not CGI. He’s really gone.”
The tongue-in-cheek video, which has now been viewed over 1.2 million times, ends with a Sarah Mclachlan-esq photo tribute to the one and only Kingstache.
Watch the video below, and then take a scroll through all the best pics of Henry and his luscious mustache. RIP, Kingstache, you were a helluva stache.
