Johnnie Walker unleashes 11 minutes of Jude Law racing to Monaco for a bet

Jude Law returns for the second "gentleman's wager" online film for Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

The new film broke online yesterday (1 November) and stars Law, alongside Giancarlo Giannini (who was also in the first film) and Zhao Wei. In the ad, Law sets out to win a vintage car by taking part in a road race. Formula One stars Mika Häkkinen and Jenson Button also make cameos in the film.

The ad was created by Anomaly and directed by Jake Scott through RSA Films, and it is designed to position Johnnie Walker’s Blue Label whisky as the ideal luxury gift.

Guy Escolme, the global brand director at Johnnie Walker, said: "An extension of the brand’s new 'joy will take you further' campaign, which shows that joy is the fuel of progress, The Gentleman’s Wager II promotes the idea that a little gratitude goes a long way, not least in delivering joy.

"It also signals our commitment to continue to invest in the Johnnie Walker brand to drive the next decade of growth for the world’s best-selling Scotch whisky."

The ad was written by Mike Bryne, Lars Jorgensen, Martin Ginsborg, Zach McDonald and Mark Sarosi, who also art directed the spot.
