Advertising Men: Watch This Nespresso Ad Starring George Clooney & Matt Damon, Directed By Grant Heslov

Advertising Men: Watch This Nespresso Ad Starring George Clooney & Matt Damon, Directed By Grant Heslov

So why do celebrities like endorsing products? Well, Page Six‘s recent report is fairly instructive, as they reveal that Matt Damon got paid $150,000/second, or $3 million, for twenty seconds of work to feature in a new Nespresso spot with his good pal George Clooney. That coffee must be really good. Anyway, you can watch the “Monuments Men” pair bring their skills to selling java in a spot direct by Clooney collaborator and producer, Grant Heslov. And if Damon got $3 million, we’re wondering how much Clooney got and if it was really worth it for Nespresso.

Meanwhile, U.K. store Marks & Spencer has launched their “Christmas Magic & Sparkle” campaign with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, David Gandy and Helena Bonham Carter. It’s a fairy tale-inspired spot that finds Huntington-Whiteley going on a Dorothy-like adventure (one in which the Victoria’s Secret model loses her clothes at one point, obviously) in an advert that looks like it actually cost whatever Nespresso paid Damon for his brief work. Different strokes, different folks we guess. Check out both spots below. [News Australia/The Inspiration Room]

I'll bet the money from these ads goes to their favorite charities, they are both great humanitarians.


I read that Clooney donates his fee for these adverts to causes in Darfour. Can anyone confirm this?


They're always fun together.


Everytime Matt Damon does a gig for a hire a great performance is allowed to exist on the next passion project.


There is no shame in doing some clever advertising…but wow. Not good. Everybody looks to be sleepwalking through this. At least Penelope Cruz looks great in her Nespresso spot.

But if this is the sort of gig Damon has to take to make up for the pay cut to do "Behind the Candelabra", then I am all for it.

Movie dude

Is it just me, or does Damon look wicked smaht?


The original article is clearly false. Damon was paid for a campaign, not just one commercial, and two commercials are already online.

Jason Bourne, chillin and watchin the exits. God he's hot.


If I had $3 million I'd be glad to glad to give it to Matt Damon but what I would require of him would take more than 20 seconds. Two hours should do it :-)
