Friday, November 13th, 2009 - Nespresso
It’s daring, amusing and completely unpredictable. Debuting in November, the latest TVC from Nespresso features George Clooney and John Malkovich, as they determine just how far they’re willing to go to indulge in their love of the highest quality coffee.

Created by McCann Paris and directed by Robert Rodriguez, the new TVC features George Clooney on the hunt for a stylish new Nespresso machine when a falling piano takes his life. In the next world, he meets a spiritual John Malkovich, who grants him another shot at life on earth in exchange for… what else? His beloved Nespresso coffee machine.

“Our new ad is a departure from the traditional Nespresso/Clooney storyline, which tends to feature George charming the women in a boutique setting,” said Renaud Tinel, General Manager of Nespresso Oceania. “With its daring storyline and plenty of humour, the new TVC is sure to delight both coffee connoisseurs and fans of George and John alike. Not only are both men extraordinary actors, they also have a tremendous ability to treat their audiences to moments of excitement and pleasure. And that, in essence, is what Nespresso is all about—providing highest-quality premium portioned coffee, which has the ability to make an ordinary moment truly extraordinary.”

Tinel continued: “In creating this new campaign, we were delighted to work with John Malkovich for the first time. Mr. Malkovich is an actor of the highest calibre, who provides the perfect accompaniment to George Clooney. As a long-time Nespresso Club Member, he is also very knowledgeable about Nespresso Grands Crus. In fact, he has Nespresso machines at his homes in both France and in the United States.”

Nespresso fans will also be delighted to discover a range of additional cinematic moments and bonus material from the three-day filming of the campaign featured on the Nespresso website. Bonus material includes unreleased footage from a scene where Clooney is trying to find alternatives to his Nespresso machine to exchange with Malkovich – such as his car or his house in Como.

The new TVC will run in Australia from November 22. For a sneak preview of the film and to view the bonus footage, click here: [].
