George Clooney Stars In New Advert For Mercedes-Benz China

George Clooney Starring In A TV Commercial for Mercedes-Benz China
He’s been in dozens of blockbuster movies, from teaming up with Brad Pitt and Matt Damon in Ocean’s 11 to getting up close and personal with J-Lo in Out of Sight to name a couple. Now Hollywood A-Lister George Clooney is the lead male for Mercedes-Benz in China and stars in a new TV commercial to promote the new E-Class Long Wheelbase Edition.

The advert itself is slightly odd and not particularly exciting, unlike Kobe Bryant’s SMART car advert. The Chinese model Bonnie Chen who features alongside Clooney also seems somewhat out of place in the commercial. But as many viewers and probably Mercedes itself will say…who cares.

What do you think of the new ad? Will Mr Clooney win over the Chinese market?

    anyway, the whole video is a fake with really bad final cut and work… shame on the agency who did it…

    Yeah, the new “Chiense” are so patriotic, while always calling themselves “I am a patriot” yet they worship white people like a catholic priest with young boys…

    You are all reading too deeply into this. Clooney is friggin’ rad and that chic is hot. That’s why they are riding in a sweet automobil – because rad people and hot women ride in sweet cars.
