Heart or Humor
Premiering on screens around the world today, George Clooney returns in his latest installment as a Nespresso brand ambassador, as he’s never been seen before. ‘The Quest’ sees George Clooney suited up in armour, majestically saving a medieval kingdom before hitting the streets of New York City on a quest to find his heart’s desire, the kingdom’s most exceptional coffee. Co-starring in the epic adventure is one of the silver screen’s most famous queens, Natalie Dormer (Queen Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones), and the two feature in the largest global Nespresso campaign to date, launching in more than 30 countries.
‘The Quest’ is inspired by Nespresso’s own tireless pursuit of excellence in delivering exceptional coffee experiences. The 60-second TV commercial is set in a medieval castle and George plays an honorable knight to a formidable queen. After slaying a dragon to save the Queen’s kingdom, George is offered a reward, which sets him off on a quest to find something he truly desires. His pursuit takes him from a medieval court to a movie theatre and on a double-decker bus, proving he will stop at nothing to find his beloved Nespresso.
“I’ve been working with Nespresso for many years and I’m thrilled to be back on set. This time I get to work with the very talented Natalie Dormer and live out my fantasy of playing the role of a medieval knight,” said George Clooney.
This year, Natalie Dormer co-stars in the campaign, and plays a fitting character given her previous regal screen roles. Natalie unsurprisingly perfects the part of an exacting queen and as a self-proclaimed Nespresso aficionado; she was perfectly suited to feature alongside George.
“I’m a big Nespresso fan, and my family thinks it is very apt I am doing this commercial. Working with George Clooney – what a dream come true! He is such a joy and he’s so funny. I’ve been enjoying his work for years, so finally getting to meet and work with him was fantastic,” Natalie Dormer said of working on ‘The Quest’.
