An Israeli Espresso company is being sued for having George Clooney lookalike in its ad

Nestlé is suing the Israeli coffee company ‘Espresso Club’ for using a George Clooney lookalike in its ad, effectively ripping off the Nespresso series of commercials.

Nespresso Israel said the lawsuit was being taken to “prevent customers being misled”.

Espresso Club CEO Oren Tal was quoted by local media as saying:

“This is a flagship case for Nestle and so they will fight us to the end. I think the discussion on using doubles will reach all the way to the High Court, but their claims don’t make sense, so that’s why I think we’ll win.

There is a whole genre in advertising of ads that relate to and make fun of their competitors.”
