In the time it will take you to read this, Matt Damon reportedly earned $3 million for appearing in a Nespresso ad for just 20 seconds with George Clooney. Damon raked in an impressive $150,000 per second he appears in the ad, which was produced for the UK market.
Clooney has a long-standing contract with Nespresso, and Hollywood stars have raked in millions by appearing in foreign ads that wouldn’t be seen by the US market, saving them embarrassment.
The ad is titled “In the Name of Pleasure,” and it shows Clooney being snubbed by an attractive woman who would rather drink her coffee alone.
Clooney then uses the same ploy to enjoy his own coffee, drawing the frantic females’ attention to the presence of his old friend Damon.
