Netflix Optus Ad

The Office's Ricky Gervais Promotes Netflix for Optus

How much do celebrities get paid to make adverts? Well The Office's Ricky Gervais says he needs a "shed load of cash, like seriously, mental money" and apparently, that's just what Optus paid him to help promote their recent partnership with Netflix as they launch in Australia. In typical satirical style, Gervais put in a ton of effort to get you to buy from Optus.

Check out the ad that's sure to be up for a Cannes Lion nomination later this year... just kidding.
