Daniel Craig may portray James Bond onscreen, but that doesn’t mean he’s actually an international super-spy with a licence to kill.
But try telling that to the people in a new commercial for Heineken beer featuring the “No Time to Die” star.
In the hilarious clip, Craig hops in a vehicle, only to accidentally leave his passport and wallet in the car. Running after the car, he’s seen taking a set of stairs as a Heineken truck passes, leading to the assumption that he’ll pull the Bond-like manoeuvre of leaping atop the truck and heading off in pursuit. A pair of elderly men look and point, exclaiming, “James Bond!”
Instead, the winded actor bends over, panting heavily. “No,” says one of the men. “Not James Bond.”
Craig finally catches up with the car, which leads him into some sort of party taking place in a castle, which requires he steal a tuxedo in order to sneak in.
Along the way, more people continue to mistake him for 007, including the bartender, who slides a martini glass in front of him — just as Craig pulls out a bottle of Heineken and takes a big drink.
“No Time to Die” hits theatres on April 8.
