Whoo Ah! Coffee!

14Jul10

It always cracks me up when uber-celebs who would never stoop to do a commercial here in the states sell out for random weird shit in other countries. (Just for kicks, search for “Japanese commercial celebrity” on YouTube and watch the crazy stuff that comes up.) It makes you wonder why Al Pacino suddenly decided to hawk Australian coffee in this Barry Levinson-shot spot. I guess it’s nicely done. And Al’s certainly a big-time actor that any product would like to get as a spokesman. But it all just seems a little contrived, doesn’t it? Like Al and Barry were more interested in the process of making a commercial than actually selling a product?

I guess it’s better than this.
