Topic: My observation of the Heineken Skyfall commercial.

I don't know if you noticed the dark haired man whom Daniel Craig bumped into, in the Heineken Skyfall commercial--But I did, and I thought if you shaved the man's facial hair off, he might look a tad bit more Bondian than Daniel Craig but I don't think the dark haired fella could act (with the best of them) and he probably couldn't do the fight scenes convincingly either.

But if you prefer someone looks a tad bit more Bondian than the current 007, then the dark haired man whom Daniel Craig handed the Heineken bottles to, is probably your guy.

Looks too Dalton to be Bond.

I think Timothy Dalton probably had more of a "cruel good looks" thing going on than Roger Moore and David Niven.

I don't mind Dalton-esque Bonds. Because I get such a kick out of The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill that I wouldn't mind seeing more films like that.

Her name is Gin Wigmore. And the song is entitled, "Man Like That."

I honestly don't know if Gin Wigmore sung her little song and dance in the last Heineken ad. Because whoever that was, I couldn't see the tattoos that Gin Wigmore is supposed to have. At least not from that angle. Watch the music video for "Man Like That" in full and you'll see Gin Wigmore's tattoos.

You know how Die Another Day was basically one, great, big,  anniversary reel, with some obvious and some not-so-obvious homages to past Bond films...Well, the whole Heineken commercial is basically like that!  ajb007/martini  ajb007/bond

Yeah, I think the commercial was not supposed to be narrowly fixed on SkyFall, but rather the whole Bond experience.

The blonde woman in the one add is Mette Lindberg, lead singer of the Danish band, Asteroids Galaxy Tour. She is singing their single “Golden Age” in the commercial.  (that's the one that says "sing it out loud, gotta get that..." never could tell what the next word was, but it sounds like "Heini")
The Brunette in the most recent commercial before the Bond one, at least the most recent that I know of, was Clairy Browne and the Bangin’ Rackettes, singing Love Letter.  That was the commercial titled "the Switch" where three guys walk into a bar (cue joke here) and the bar changes into a cool club while they are served.
Those two and Gin Wigmore are the only 3 female singers Heineken has used so far that I know of.  Hope that helps.
