George Clooney Marries Random Commoner in Bank Ad

Woman is as surprised as you are

George Clooney, last spotted celebrating his 50th birthday by doing a lame Italian commercial, has now done this slightly less lame Norwegian ad—for that country's largest bank. In it, some random woman awakens with no memory of the night before—when she apparently got married to Clooney, who was wearing a horse head at the time. The plot would seem to be tailor-made for Charlie Sheen rather than Clooney, but perhaps Sheen was unavailable. "Some have luck in life. The rest of us might want to save some," says the tagline at the end. Clooney, of course, doesn't do terrible ads for crappy companies, so you have to assume the bank being advertised is a classy joint. Via Copyranter.
