Now, George clooney may add a Warburtons ad appearance to their resume.
The A-list star of films including Ocean’s Eleven, Gravity and Michael Clayton is the latest in a series of celebrities to appear in an advertisement for the British bakery brand.
In the new commercial, which will first air on ITV on May 8, he is seen trying to get in touch with bakery chef Jonathan Warburton to pitch an idea. Unfortunately, her call comes around snack time – and the toast comes first.
The fees paid to Clooney were donated to the Clooney Foundation For Justice, founded by the actor and his wife, Amal, an international human rights lawyer.
And of course, he’s not the first Hollywood star to present an advertising campaign …
Robert de niro
Clooney follows in the footsteps of one of the world’s most acclaimed actors by teaming up with Warburtons.
In 2019, two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro famous for his roles in Goodfellas, Raging Bull and the Godfather Part II, added the bakery to his credit list with a bagel ad.
Playing an amalgamation of his famous gangster roles, the star and his accomplices could be seen tying up security guards and re-labeling products as “GoodBagels”.
And it’s not just bread De Niro is a fan of – he’s also appeared in commercials for Kia and Santander.
Sticking to Warburtons (other brands of bread are available), Sylvester Stallone was also the unlikely face of breads in 2015.
In the ad, Stallone called Mr. Warburton to pitch his idea for the movie, posing as a picky delivery guy who will do whatever it takes to make sure their products are delivered on time.
Of course, the Bolton movie features a Rocky-style stage race, soundtracked by Eye Of The Tiger.
Presumably, Stallone, De Niro, and Clooney are now making sandwiches.
Did anyone sayâ¦ Just Eat?
Rapper Snoop Dogg has appeared in several commercials, including for Money Supermarket, but is now best known in the product flogging world as the face and voice of the food ordering and delivery service Just Eat.
He would have cashed in millions of dollars for the deal, but the partnership has also worked well for the company, with sales skyrocketing as people have had to stay home during the pandemic – the rapper has persuaded thousands of us to order “piles of noodles” and “chicken wings”. to the nursery “.
If anyone can convince us to drop a Gregg at the door, it’s Snoop.

Famous for playing the man-eater Samantha Jones on the series, the 2012 commercial for Super Mario 3D sees Cattrall looking for the world’s most famous plumber’s company.
“There are a lot of men in my life, but for a few minutes – or a few hours – I’ll always find time for Mario,” she said, putting it in her bag.
Apparently, he also likes to dress up.
The actor, best known for films such as Footloose, Hollow Man and Mystic River, has been the ambassador of the UK mobile network EE for almost 10 years now.
In 2020, Bacon could be seen having foggy eyes on a new iPhone.
In early 2021, it partnered with the brand to spread a message to teachers, offering free and unlimited data to those who need it most as schools were closed during times of pandemic lockdowns and children were learning from home.
When Dutch beer brand Amstel went for a campaign in Amsterdam, themed about bridges connecting people, they needed a well-known star with warmth, gravitas and the surname Bridges.
Fortunately, they got the best decks, which carried The Dude’s charisma to the proceedings for the 2019 commercial.
The star was no stranger to beer flogging, having appeared in a Stella Artois commercial during the Super Bowl a few months before her turn as a real bridge.
Starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, the character of Sex And The City, Bridges took over The Dude from The Big Lebowski for the movie Stella; the two characters traded in their favorite drinks – a Cosmopolitan and a White Russian, respectively – for a pint.
Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction … and Direct Line.
Harvey Keitel, or rather his Pulp Fiction gangster / fixer Winston Wolfe, has been the face of the insurance brand for several years.
However, in 2020 the Wolf found himself retired, replaced by RoboCop, Transformers’ Bumblebee, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Donatello.
Another Oscar winner and one of the world’s most revered actors, Al Pacino is no stranger to the business world either.
In 2013, he appeared in a Sky Fiber Broadband commercial, standing atop a grand piano and hitting golf balls around an impressive mat, as computer experts check his computer, which slows down.
Pacino is in good company, Samuel L Jackson having also appeared in a Sky commercial, and Idris Elba a face of the brand.
