George Clooney, John Malkovich (as God) return for Nespresso.
(via) Clooney's been the European face of the Nestlé coffee brand since 2006. Last November, Malkovich hopped on that Euro commercial gravy train when, in a spot needlessly directed by Robert Rodriguez, he killed Clooney with a falling piano (to get a hold of his Nespresso purchase). This one is even less funny. Notice that it's not Clooney's voice that yells "taxi!" I guess the client didn't want to pay him for a one-word patch. As with all the Nespresso spots, it includes hot women eye-fucking Georgie (a creative element that's probably in his Nespresso contract).

Al Pacino is concurrently endorsing a different brand of coffee in Australia. That scenario is the beginning of a bad star-powered comedy script. Previously in embarrassing overseas star product endorsements:
• Jude Law (Russia)
• Jackie Chan (China).
• Kevin Spacey (the UK).
• Quentin Tarantino (Russia).
