George Clooney marries on Norwegian television
Tuesday 20 September 2011
As George Clooney's last ex-girlfriend, Italian Elisabetta Canalis, competes on the US reality competition show
Dancing With the Stars, the actor/director and confirmed bachelor gets married for Norwegian Bank DnB NOR.
After recently screening his upcoming films The Descendents and Ides of March at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, Clooney shows his acting skills and sense of humor in the advertisement, surprising an unsuspecting bride.
The television spot, posted online last week, opens with a newlywed woman waking with a giant diamond on her finger and staggering around the hotel room, staring at wedding photos and her white gown in disbelief.
When Clooney enters the honeymoon suite, he kisses his new wife, shows her an image of their new home on the internet, and seems pleased to fulfill her fantasy.
The tagline states: Some people are lucky in life. For the rest of us, saving can be smart.
