Johnnie Walker Blue sequel starring Jude Law shows power of generosity

Diageo's luxury whisky brand Johnnie Walker Blue has released 'The Gentleman's Wager II', an 11-minute short film in which actor Jude Law and new brand ambassador Zhao Wei show the power of generosity.

In an echo of the plot of the original film, Law strikes a wager that he can drive his rich friend Giancarlo Giannini's vintage car from central Italy to Monaco in a day.

Chinese actor Wei, who Law helps out along the way, features in Johnnie Walker Blue’s newest international ad campaign, ‘Joy Will Take You Further’.

Another face from that campaign, F1 driver Jenson Button, has a brief cameo in ‘The Gentleman’s Wager II’.
