Al Pacino has made some questionable career moves within the past decade and his latest project has him going from world-reknown actor to coffee pusher. That’s right, Pacino’s got an itch for caffeine and he wants everyone to know about it. The Oscar winning actor taped a commercial for an Australian coffee company called Vittoria and it’s recently surfaced on the web. Check out Pacino as “The Endorser.”
Oh Pacino, how the mighty have fallen. Does he actually ever take a sip of the coffee? There’s a lot of toying around with the logo laced cup but no drinking. If anything the cinematography here is awesome. It looks like they put a lot of effort into this ad. It has a similar feel to those American Express credit card commercials with Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. Did Pacino ever do one of those?
Now that we know that Pacino is a caffeine junky unlike his coked out alter ego Tony Montana, we can all sleep a little easier. He’s pushing the brown stuff, not the white stuff these days and it’s actually legal.
What do you think of Al Pacino’s Australian coffee commercial? Does it make you want to buy some?
