While going up and down the interwebs today, I came across something pretty interesting I thought you might appreciate, despite of it being an auto commercial. Yes, as in a cars commercial. Starring Ewan McGregor.
It’s not the usual Jedi cliché you may think of but something better. Don’t expect Ewan’s wave to convince us into buying the new Citroen – imagine a more subtle game. A Bond–like game. Actually – why aren’t they considering Ewan McGregor for the next Bond film? One look at the James Gray (We Own The Night, Two Lovers) directed commercial after the jump is enough to make him a very believable candidate for a Bond role.
Interrogated by the lovely Vinessa Shaw (Side Effects, Vegas), Ewan looks very convinced of the extreme performance offered by the new Citroen model, the DS5 Hybrid4, a combination between a diesel engine and an electric motor swearing by a very low fuel consumption. A long way from his love for motorcycle and his Belstaff campaign…
Forget the car-talk: am I the only one who spotted Jake Gyllenhaal as well? At the 3 seconds mark?
