Al Pacino now hawking coffee in Australia?

07.15.2010

I can't really preface this with a "Cool Videos" header, as it's more just, awkward. I guess times are tough and Al Pacino has decided it's time to endorse his first product ever. Heís starring in a new series of commercials for Vittoria Coffee, a family owned coffee company in Australia.

The ad campaign is directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN), and reportedly it took multiple attempts to get Pacino onboard for the campaign. Many celebrities have done commercials overseas and are still stars for the most part, so this isnít that big of a deal. Itís just rather strange to see.

The first commercial, which you can see below, is pretty much just Pacino talking about how much he likes coffee, while unironically having the face of a man who clearly needs a cup of coffee more than anyone else on earth.

Check it out below:

Extra Tidbit: At least they didn't have him saying, "Man, this coffee is HOOO-AHHT!"

Inspiration

My wife and I where sitting on the couch watching tv and this ad pop's up. Without a word afterwards, I got up, made myself a cuppa and my wife look's over, gives me a smirk and says "you dickhead". What can I say, Pacino's the man!

Could've been worse...

At least they didn't go the DirecTV-like route of re-enacting the HEAT diner scene, complete with DeNiro and digitally inserted cups of Vittoria coffee. "You see me doin' thrill-seeker coffee store holdups with a "Born to Lose" tattoo on my chest? Right. I'm never going back...to decaf...now that I've had Vittoria coffee."

"You know, you can ball my wife if she wants you to. You can lounge around here on her sofa if you want to. But you do not get to drink my fucking Vittoria Coffee!"
