The only ad James Gandolfini ever did (I think).


2007, for Kobold watches.
The ad ran for a year.
Gandolfini did it for free.
Here's the back story.

Is this actually real? I'm shocked, but happy. That's so funny and gives me a good memory of Gandolfini. I think the problem is that too many brands are risk adverse and are scared to death of bad press. More small brands, rather than using energy to come up with something remarkable, would rather use the types of services listed at BuyFacebookFansReviews to increase random metrics rather than taking a shot at something hard, but actually viral. I think the whole advertising industry needs to be more creative and Mad Men-ish rather than metrics and numbers based. Much respect for Gandolfini for this - RIP

Gandolfini did an American Airlines campaign in the UK, and I think a Vuitton press campaign too. HTH
