George Clooney stars in new Warburtons advert



Hollywood actor George Clooney is the latest celebrity to star in a TV advert for British bakery brand Warburtons.
The A-lister, who turns 60 on May 6, is seen alongside bakery boss Jonathan Warburton in the minute-long advert which will air on ITV on May 8.
The fee paid to Clooney for his participation in the campaign was donated to the Clooney Foundation For Justice, which was founded by the actor and his wife, the international human rights lawyer, Amal.

The foundation campaigns against human rights abuses around the world.
Mr Warburton can be seen preparing a piece of toast with butter to eat as his 3pm snack – only to be interrupted as a receptionist runs into the room declaring: “Mr Warburton, George Clooney is on the line!”

But the Ocean’s Eleven star is left dumbfounded when he’s snubbed for a piece of hot, buttered toast as Warburton declares: “He can wait,” closing the laptop so he can eat his toast. 
Clooney can be heard saying: “He hung up?”

On appearing in the advert, Clooney said: “It’s not every day your call is turned down for a slice of toast, but needless to say I had a lot of fun filming this spot. 
"It was great working with the Warburtons team and I’m thankful for the support they are providing to the Clooney Foundation For Justice.”

“At Warburtons, we pride ourselves on the care that goes into making sure that every single loaf is as fresh and high quality as possible. Quality is truly at the heart of our 145-year-old business, and this new ad is a real celebration of that passion, and we hope it will bring a smile to those watching.”

Not amused  Warburton used Ava Maria for a commercial.

PAN - Very Happy Loved the IMDb tweet! Great clips and responses, too. Every time I see one of those "Which is your favorite?" things it starts me trying to pick my favorite - and I can't! I like so many of his films. And what about the ones they didn't mention: The American, Solaris, One Fine Day and so many others.

I gather Warburton's bread is something like our Wonder Bread : ubiquitous and pretty generic white bread. I guess George figured "Why not?", since he'd end up with some money for his foundation. I didn't realize he had done so much commercial work - and there are a couple I can think of that they didn't mention.

I’ll never look at white toast in the same way again.  They make it look so scrumptious.  Who knew???
