Danny Glover spoofs Lethal Weapon role in latest Orange Gold Spot

LONDON - Danny Glover is the latest Hollywood star to appeal to cinema goers to switch off their mobiles before the start of a film, with a role in the 24th Orange Gold Spot ad.

The ad, created by Fallon, breaks on 11 December and sees Glover playing the lead in an action blockbuster called 'Dial Hard'.

While Glover had believed he was making a film about a janitor who uncovers corporate corruption, Mr Dresden and his sidekick Eliot have, of course, intervened to radically edit the film.

Naturally, Glover reacts in disbelief, declaring "I'm too old for this", a line taken from one of his greatest hits, 'Lethal Weapon'.

Glover joins the likes of Spike Lee and Carrie Fisher as actors who have appeared in the Orange Gold Spot campaign. It was initially created by Mother in 2002, with Fallon taking over creative duties on the campaign this year.

Spencer McHugh, brand director for Orange UK, said: "The Gold Spot has become part of the cinema going experience in recent years and this iconic advertising continues to be enjoyed by millions of film goers contributing to us being the number one brand associated with film."
