As part of a new business venture he is involved in, George Clooney got into bed with model Cindy Crawford for a new advertisement and also in between the sheets was Clooney's girlfriend Stacey Kiebler.
The Oscar-winning actor partnered up with Rande Gerber, Crawford's husband, to create a brand of alcohol called Casamigos Tequila. A new extended commercial reportedly filmed at one of Clooney's homes to promote the brand was released to the public and shows the two stars lying in bed. A New York Post Page Six source said there is truth to the story line, and that it's "loosely based on a true story," which involves the stars "hopping into bed in various odd couplings."
The footage was directed by Clooney and Grant Heslov. In the ad, Gerber walks into the bedroom to see his wife in bed with Clooney. Crawford then tenses up, being embarrassed, and pulls the blanket up to her face. The camera then turns to a bottle of the tequila. The extended version of the advertisement then shows Clooney walk into the bedroom and see Crawford with Kiebler in bed together. He acts confused and decides to leave.
In the following shot, Crawford walks into the bedroom and sees Gerber in bed with Clooney. The two men look stunned that they are even in bed together and behind Crawford, Kiebler to the door. "Please drink responsibly", it displayed on the screen before going dark.
Clooney is not the first celebrity to have a hand in his own tequila brand. Singer Justin Timberlake came out with 901 Silver Tequila, named after the area code of his Memphis, Tenn., hometown, which sells for roughly $40 and is made from 100 percent blue agave. Vince Neil (Tres Rios Tequila) and former Van Halen lead singer Sammy Hager (Cabo Wabo Tequila) also have their own brands.
