How far would you go for a Nespresso?
That's the question the coffee brand is asking in its latest ad campaign with Amal Alamuddin's new husband and Nespresso spokesperson George Clooney, and his Monuments Men co-star, French actor Jean Dujardin.
The clever and comic video follows Clooney who meets his match in Dujardin as they try to outwit each other for a Nespresso coffee. First, Clooney comes across Dujardin who is about to take the last Nespresso capsule. So he offers up his expensive shoes - in an old school barter trade. Unfortunately for Clooney, it does not end there - he unwittingly gives up his favourite Volluto Grand Cru to a beautiful lady who turns out to be in cahoots with Dujardin instead.
Watch the extended commercial below to see how the story pans out with a little twist at the end:
The video globally launched on 1 November, and is set to launch in Singapore, proper, on 11 November http://www.nespresso.com/howfar.
