Since 2006, George Clooney has done commercials abroad Nespresso, and his commercial work has done well for the company. In response to this successful coupling of silver fox and espresso, rival company Israeli Espresso Club launched an advertisement that craps all over Nespresso's Clooney spots with a Clooney-alike.
The ad, which started airing in January, opens with text reading "This is not George Clooney." In case it's not clear enough this is a riff on Nespresso, the not-George-Clooney guy walks out of a Nespresso-like store and is made out to be a fool.
Nespresso Israel was like, "This is trash, that dude looks just like George Clooney" and so they've sued the Israeli Espresso Club for $50,000. Okay, they actually said they want to "prevent customers from being misled."
Honestly, this lawsuit is a waste of money because that guy has got nothing on George. Dude is a bad actor who can't hold a candle to Clooney.
George Clooney is on his own level.
