New Nespresso Campaign Relies on Combined Star Power of Clooney, Damon

McCann and Lowe have put together a new global integrated campaign for Nestle’s espresso line Nespresso featuring good pals/Oceans Eleven co-stars George Clooney and Matt Damon.

The new spots follow in the footsteps of the eight part, award-winning campaign with George Clooney, who’s been the face of Nespresso–especially outside of the U.S.–since 2006. In this latest effort, “Nespresso: In the Name of Pleasure,” (featured above), Clooney is snubbed by an attractive female, which is supposed to be funny because he’s George Clooney. In the cheesy, not surprising “twist,” the woman tells a crowd “George Clooney’s inside,” causing a stampede.

In the shorter complement to the main Nespresso “Pleasure” ad, Clooney runs into his Hollywood colleague and informs everyone of the latter’s presence, causing a similar stampede. If you like the gimmick, or love the talent enough not to care either way, you’ll fall for it. Otherwise, you may be wondering what the appeal is (like me). Check out the Damon follow-up as well as credits after the jump. Read more

Digitas Founder’s Teenage Son Makes Candy, Garners Nods from Jason Bourne & Tom Brady

Well, this is news to us but a friend tipped us about this little startup from one Nicky Bronner, who is the son of Michael Bronner, the founder and former CEO of a little company you know called Digitas. Young Nicky (yep, he’s 13) already has fans and investors in the likes of Matt Damon, a co-launcher of Chipotle, Tom Brady and wifey Gisele Bundchen. According to a profile posted a few weeks back, the lad got the idea to start Unreal to eliminate the junk from junk food and enjoy the Halloween candies that even parents would approve. Shit, all we did on Halloween at 13 was avoid getting egged while wearing a knock-off Freddy Krueger costume. The video above, featuring Damon, Brady, Gisele, Unreal chef Adam Melonas and others, should help explain things.
