George Clooney Stumbles His Way Into a Great Tequila Commercial

Remember the Hollywood movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice? Well, thanks to a wonderful Forbes Life piece by Jennifer Kamm, we now have the full script for Rande & Cindy & George & Stacy.

Kamm’s December 15 issue interview feature is all about the personal friendship of Rande Gerber and George Clooney, and how it produced their line of premium tequila. After an extensive R&D phase, the two drank a bottle of the ready-for-market Casamigos product at the Malibu end of Gerber’s Café Habana. Smashed, they safely made their way back to Gerber’s home, where Clooney was pointed to the guest room while Gerber crashed in his son’s room:

With no sign of Gerber at 2 a.m., [wife Cindy] Crawford decided to check the guest room, where she saw a man fully clothed, reposado on top of the covers. “She gets into the bed, rubs my back, and says, ‘Hey, babe, why don’t you get undressed and into bed?’ And with that, George turned his head, and Cindy saw that it was him in there,” Gerber continues. “George thought he must’ve stumbled into the master bedroom and gotten into our bed!”

After Crawford finally discovered Gerber in their son’s room and relayed the embarrassing mix-up, the pair heard someone padding around downstairs. “I went to the kitchen,” Gerber says. “We have this junk drawer full of candy and chips and stuff. And we started just munching out, hysterically laughing. When Cindy came down a little while later, George said, ‘That’s our ad campaign!- ‘Drink Casamigos and wake up with Cindy Crawford!’’ And she replied, ‘No – ‘Drink Casamigos and wake up with George Clooney!'”

Thanks to all this, the resulting promo (below) is inching towards half a million YouTube views. Nice piece by contributor Kamm, who is also the New York editor for Haute Living.
