George Clooney's insane new commercial for a Norwegian bank.

New spot for DnB NOR, Norway's largest bank. The translation is something about some people being lucky in life, blah blah blah. But: Clooney got married! And he banged his bride wearing a horse head mask! The humongous rock is a nice touch. He must have got paid a ton of krones. It's definitely an improvement over his terrible Nespresso commercials. George, gambling debts? Being blackmailed?
Ad agency: Try/Apt, Norway.

It's mind boggling how many brands this guy has been the spokesperson for:

- FastWeb, Italia
- Nespresso
- Emidio Tucci (Spanish clothing brand)
- Fiat
- Martini, Italia
- Toyota, Japan (Mark II)
- Honda, Japan (Odyssey)
- DnB, Norway

There might be more.

It's not supposed to be a model, but a down to earth "normal" girl... One that people can relate to.

Saving is a dry subject that few of us really like focusing on. For me this ad approaches the topic with wit and humour. It openly mocks the misguided belief that some form of lucky windfall will secure your financial future. It says ‘Come on grils, you know this isn’t going to happen, so get real and do something about it now.’

It’s interesting that they’ve come to the conclusion that they need to sell the category, rather than focusing specifically on the benefits of their savings product – shows how far the credit obsessed buy now, pay later culture has permeated society.

As an ad which is tackling a dry subject, attempting to start changing perceptions I think it’s on the money…pardon the pun.
