Warburtons has revealed its latest TV advert that stars George Clooney, alongside bakery boss Jonathan Warburton.
The ad comes as the latest edition of Warburtons’ series of epic stories in which A list celebrities including Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone pitch a movie idea to the bakery’s chairman Jonathan Warburton.
The ad opens in Jonathan Warburton’s office. He is eagerly awaiting his 3pm break. As the clock strikes the top of the hour, Warburton is seen preparing his favourite snack – the perfect slice of hot buttered toast.
The Chairman is suddenly interrupted as his receptionist runs into the room and declares 'Mr. Warburton, George Clooney is on the line!' She gestures to a laptop where George Clooney is waiting. Jonathan, not wanting to be distracted from his toast smiles 'he can wait' as he closes the laptop and tucks into his beloved toast.
George is left bewildered in the final shot as he is seen staring down the laptop screen saying: 'Mr. Warburton? He hung up?'
