Sean Connery Advertises For Louis Vuitton

I'm sure many of you have seen Sean Connery's ads for Louis Vuitton. This is actually the one I usually see when I'm flipping through one of my magazines. This man is amazing at any age.

I found a video that shows the making of the ad campaign. I enjoyed it. I thought I would share it with you all.

It's brand new to me...how did I miss this before? The wiring in my Sean Connery detector must be on the fritz again ;D

Very cool post, Keith, thank you for sharing!

Have a wonderful week!

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks for commenting. That's cool that I could introduce you to this. I've seen this ad in magazines like GQ. Hope you have a great week. Take care. Cheers!

Sam said...

He's looking remarkably fit, isn't he? I'm at work so I can't look at the video just at the moment - but that looks like Annie Liebowitz...? I'll check it out this evening when I get home - thanks for the post - interesting!!

"This man is amazing at any age."

SO true! By far my favorite Bond :D

Thanks so much for your warm words about my Dad! He's feeling better, so things are going well xo

Terence Sambo said...

yh he's ageing gracefully :o]

Protege said...

Ah, I totally loved this! He is such a handsome man, it is so palpable from the clip; they way he holds the tea (coffee) cup.;) I guess a gentleman stays a gentleman throughout the ages.,)
Great post!

petite nyonya said...

This ad went worldwide, even in the papers in Singapore! He's so charismatic. This blog of yours brings back so many TV memories of yesteryear.

Maggi said...

Yup, the man is a poster boy for men getting better with age!

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I love Sean. I had seen this ad before. I had not seen this video clip. I did enjoy seeing the behind the scenes of this shoot.

Keith said...

Hey Sam. Thanks for commenting. Hope you enjoy the video when you get a chance to see it. Yeah, it's Annie in it. Have a great day.

Keith said...

Hey JFK. Thanks. Yeah, I think he's aged wonderfully.

Keith said...

Thanks Sonia. Cheers!

Thanks Gingey. I love his accent. My sis actually loves the older Connery better than the younger one.

Keith said...

Thanks Stephanie. I'm so glad you liked that. Take care. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Wheel. Thanks. I'm glad you're a Connery fan. You are welcome about my commenting about your dad. I'm glad he's doing better. I will continue to pray for him.

Keith said...

Hey Terence. Yeah, he definitely shows us the right way to age.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks. I love this man. He has aged so well. I love this clip. Once a gent, always a gent.

Keith said...

Hey Petite. That is so cool that this ad was global. Thanks so much. I'm really glad you enjoy my blog. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Maggi. I totally agree. I want to age that well.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. I love this ad. I'm happy that I could share this clip with you. I had never seen it before myself.

Drake said...

Connery is the man.
He could sell anything, who wouldn't buy what Bond is selling? :)

Wana said...

i loooovvveeee sean connery!! he's aged magnificently!!

Keith said...

Hey Drake. Thanks for commenting. You are so right. I would definitely wanna buy whatever Bond himself is selling.

Keith said...

Hey Wana. Thanks. Glad to see you're a fan. Yeah, he's aged quite well.

Robert M. Lindsey said...

My wife doesn't think the young Connery was very attractive, but she really likes the older man. She says I'm like him, in that I get better looking as I get older.

Wolf Boy said...

Sean is truly the man. It doesn't matter what age he is.

Keith said...

Hey Robert. Thanks for commenting. My sister said the young Connery was handsome, but she finds the older Connery sexy. I think that's about how she put it.

Keith said...

Hey Stiletto. Thanks. I'm happy I could share this with you. I thought it was cool to see what Connery was up to.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. I totally agree with you.

Erika said...

I remember seeing these some time ago, but I didn't know who Sean Connery was back then. How fun that he worked with Louis Vuitton! :)

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks for commenting. I do think it's awesome that he's worked with Louis Vuitton.

Couture Carrie said...

In totally agree with you, Keith. Mr. Connery is the very defninition of debonair!

xoxox,

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Thanks. I love the way you described him as debonair.

Lizzy said...

You're right! He looks great!He is very manly.

Keith said...

Hey Lizzy. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed this post.

Heavenly Housewife said...

This might be the only man who looks cool with a bag.

Keith said...

Hey Housewife. Thanks. Connery looks cool no matter what.

janettaylor said...

I agree with Maggi. LOL! :-)

Nice, Keith!

KIRAFASHION said...

He is so great! I love to see non fashion people at campaigns! It gives so much credit for the label...fantastic!

dapper kid said...

Seriously amazing, he looks so cool. Definitely liking him better for the campaign than Madonna who they have now. Hope you're having a fabulous day :)

drollgirl said...

he is still looking pretty good. much better than the keith richards vuitton ads.

Cathy Voyage said...

Even he's quite old, he's still hot!

Chessa! said...

yes! I have seen these timeless ads. I love sean connery. he's so classic. in fact, he kind of looks like my grandpa when he was younger...

Clarity said...

He does look good. But I have to prescribe to Bill Hicks' view on the artistic rollcall and artists making ads... not my thing.

I must admit, men do improve with age, or should I say people? ;)

P.S. With all this "Bondness" you're being a total crowd pleaser, I like it!

Gabbi said...

So handsome... he makes high-fashion manly.

rhiannon said...

Connery still looks cool and suave after all of these years. Vuitton chose the right man for their line.

clarewbrown said...

how cool! I just love Sean Connery! He is a legend! I hadn't seen these yet, so thanks for sharing!

Keith said...

Thanks Janet. Glad you liked it.

Hey Kira. Thanks. I know what you mean. I always love seeing celebs do ads. It definitely gets some star power to the product.

Keith said...

Hey Dapper. Thanks. I know what you mean. I prefer Connery. I'm doing well. I hope you are too. Take care.

Keith said...

Hey Droll. Thanks. Yeah, he definitely looks much better than Keith Richards.

Hey Cathy. Thanks. He's a handsome old man.

Keith said...

Hey Monica. Thanks for commenting. I'm glad you had seen these before. I had figured that many people would have probably seen these in their favorite magazines.

Keith said...

Hey Clarity. Thanks. I appreciate your comments. I'm glad you've enjoyed my Bond posts. Even though the focus of this blog is on Dean Martin and the Rat Pack, I do like to cover other cool things at times. James Bond is definitely one of my favorites.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. I totally agree with you.

Hey Rhiannon. Thanks. He does still look great. I think he was perfect for LV.

Hey Clare. Thanks. I'm happy I could share these with you. I love Connery's work with LV.

AutumnJones said...

He look very old man sexy (as my mom would say) She's such a southern lady. I love his accent and he was and still is the best bond!

Keith said...

Hey Autumn. Thanks. My mom and sis both think he's sexy. I love his accent.

Kristin said...

Cool ad!

Mondo said...

Never seen that one Keith - but love the Keith Richards ad

Keith said...

Thanks Kristin.

Hey Dave. Glad I could introduce you to this one.

Stephanie said...

Uh Oh, look at the Bond with the Louis Vuitton. How cool is that. :)

Keith said...

Thanks Steph. I'm so glad you got a kick out of that. It is very cool.

Kristýna said...

Wow! He looks better as he gets older! Thanks for this post, Keith.

Keith said...

Hey Kristyna. Thanks. I guess he's like a fine wine.

bish8 said...
