George in Norwegian bank ad

Post by calypso on Fri Sep 09 2011, 22:04

Just found this article and clip in the Dagbladet newspaper. I sent it through google translate, and hope you enjoy it. George is quite sweet here.

Super Star will get Norwegians to save
George Clooney interrupted holiday to take a supporting role in the commercial for the Norwegian major bank.

(Dagbladet): George Clooney broke off summer holidays to be with the new promotional film for DnB Nor.

In the film, Clooney shows up as the perfect bachelor for a woman who suddenly has luck, writes Campaign .

The bank admitted that they had not expected that the superstar would show up for the advertising film to get Norwegians to think about savings.

- We envisaged that the woman should have the ultimate bachelor, but I must admit that this was a "long shoot," says Trond Bentestuen, communication top of DnB Nor to Dagbladet.

Clooney dug the idea
When the bank did not find this bachelor in Norway, there were some who suggested Clooney.

- It does not hurt to try, we thought. He's our time Sean Connery, he said.

Clooney dug the idea, and canceled the vacation to be in the movie. According Bentestuen also alongside each actor in the production of the film.

- He was all very involved in the idea for the film. He was also very generous during recording, continues the banking summit.

"I love it" should he have said after he saw the finished result.

Laws more surprises
Bank who is also concerned about money, is more silent when the question of the fee appears.

- We had to dig less deeply than we had imagined in my wallet. Although there is a significant investment, we are concerned with the whole.

- Who is the next superstar bank will now work with?

- To us it is not about celebrities. I makes me doubt whether this is the start of a series of celebrities in the future. But we will continue to surprise, underlines Bentestuen.

Volunteered
Bentestuen has not met the superstar himself.

- We are a cost-conscious organization. But there were many of my female colleagues who wanted to be involved in the production, he says with a laugh.

Advertising film premiered Friday night and kicked off a campaign about saving the big bank.

Since I'm not superficial and materialistic, he just presented me with something sweet and simple. It only cost $55,000,000,000,000. Oh, sorry, that's the national debt. Ooops, I just woke up - dammit!!!!!

Just wanted to know if you knew him personally (friendship with him and his family), but I see you’ve only asked him a few questions so it’s more of a journalist/celebrity relationship. That’s all I wanted to know. If you were on closer terms with him then we’d want to know more!

cindi, unless we can get someone to translate from Norwegian, guess we're all lost in translation.
I'm personally lost in the thought of the whole scene.

On Oz radio today, they mentioned the ad. They said that it seemed to be a stab at Betty - he wouldn't marry her then does an ad were he gets married overnight. Concidence?? And that it was interesting that he had never done an ad like that and within months of the split, it was out there.

Huff post wrote the ad up. The ad seems to be getting a lot of press.
George Clooney's Commercial Wedding: Star Gets Married In Norwegian Commercial
Posted: 9/19/11 05:38 PM ET

Since splitting from wife Talia Balsam in 1993, George Clooney promised to never get married again. Just ask Elisabetta Canalis.

Which makes his random commercial for Norwegian television even that more hilarious.

Clooney stars in an ad for Norwegian bank DNB NOR, in which he saunters in on a newly wed confused as to what just hit her. "Well hey there, I was letting you sleep," he says, putting on his full charm as she looks at a wedding dress in horror. "I like your dress. It looks better off than on."

Judging by her reaction, maybe he's not quite as big a celebrity up in Scandinavia? Or she hated "The Men Who Stare At Goats," perhaps?

Not the only one who thinks George is getting even as only George can do. Dating DWTS SK and this AD seems like he's giving the finger to betta.

Not sure about the "Stacy" part though... However, I doubt George was getting "even" with Elisabetta with that ad... Anything that George does could be USED to increase the already done and gone / evaporated animosity factor between the two, especially for those wanting "more and more for Elisabetta" perhaps Smile
IF the DWTS was anything to go by, (besides a lot many opportunities earlier), I think George has done much much much more good for Elisabetta than for any of his previous Girlfriends... thanks to all that is being filed in here Very Happy I am thinking particularly of the hundreds and thousands of "stray slumdogs" / "poor underdogs" from different parts of the globe, who could have been where Elisabetta was last night, AND WINNING, but just could NOT, because they hadn't done George Clooney!!!
Too much has been sucked out of him already!!! BUT ofcourse, there will always be NEW innovative ways... although for now, in the name of "getting even" I guess... Smile
Now, let none of the above come in the way of my continuing to wish Elisabetta "all the very best" Smile Cheers always!! Smile

Does anyone have any idea when that Ad was produced? George's haircut is very short, and he hasn't had it that short in quite some time. Could this possibly have been produced during the time he was in Norway while working on TA? By the way, I really love him with such short hair.
