SCROLL DOWN FOR THE VIDEO!
George Clooney and Cindy Crawford do some partner swapping in a new ad for Casamigos Tequila. But was it too racy for Comcast? Probably not. Publicity stunt? Maybe.
The spot, which shows Cindy Crawford’s husband Rande Gerber discovering Crawford and Clooney in bed together, (presumably an effect of the Tequila) then shows Crawford and Clooney’s girlfriend Stacy Keibler in bed together sleeping. (that crazy Tequila again!) and finally shows Gerber and Clooney sleeping on the same bed. (Not a coincidence that Gerber is outside the covers, while Clooney underneath. It would have been okay to both be under – we realize you’re joking here, don’t be scared!)
But the New York Post reports that “Clooney made urgent calls to top Comcast execs after his YouTube short … was blocked on the Web because of its racy content.” E! had blocked it for whatever reason.
But one look at the video, and that seems unlikely. There’s little more than innuendo here. Perhaps a false front for publicity? (I mean, here I am, writing about a fairly mundane ad…) After all, Gerber and Clooney are partners in the business.
The video was restored five hours after calls from Gerber and Clooney with the ‘misunderstanding’ – that there had been a software mistake at E!
