Daniel Craig has ridiculed his James Bond character in a hilarious Heineken ad in which he highlights the differences between himself and the super-soft secret agent.
The star, 51 – would play his iconic role again for the fifth and last time in No Time To Die in April – showed his comical side as he struggled to keep up with a taxi, dropped cutlery, and lost his passport in the clip with the title “Daniel Craig against James Bond.”
Filmed in Matera, Italy – where the 25th film was recorded in the franchise, the clip starts with a relaxed Daniel sunbathing while wearing a cream-colored shirt and chino while the James Bond theme plays.

The Bond character has always been synonymous with a hard drink, preferably a vodka martini, “shaken not stirred.”
A bartender gives him a cocktail glass before the star indicates that he wants an alcohol-free Heineken beer.
With a sip the boisterous actor looks contentedly while he smiles at the camera with the inscription ‘Once James Bond, always James Bond’ on the screen.
The full advertisement release comes five days after a teaser clip of the star drinking alcohol-free beer after receiving a cocktail called “the Double O” was released.

Daniel shook his head disapprovingly before pointing at a Heineken 0.0 ice bucket.
But when we pick up the cool drink, it turns out that Bond might be just trying to be responsible and the bartender says “I work” while the classic melody plays.
Although Daniel now says he is ‘really happy’, he has signed up for a fifth film, his comments are in stark contrast to his response about re-registering when asked in 2015, shortly before the release of Specter.
“I’d rather break this glass and stick my wrists,” he said during an interview with the Time Out magazine in London.

‘Were done. I just want to go further. “
The Layer Cake star added that if he would sign up again, this would only be for the money.
But Daniel agreed to shine in the long-awaited No Time To Die, for a reported fee of £ 18.4 million ($ 25 million).
In addition to Casino Royale, Skyfall in 2012 and Specter, Daniel also appeared in Quantum of Solace in 2008.

No Time To Die, which will be released in April, has previously been described as the “wokest” Bond movie so far, after a series of revelations, including the use of a partially electric Aston Martin Valhalla alongside the DB5 on gasoline.
Actors and crew on the set have also decided to be more environmentally conscious, given the drinking of reusable water bottles, saving an estimated 230,000 single-use plastic water bottles.
Craig’s Bond is taken out of retirement to save the world from a villain who has developed a deadly algae that threatens to kill the world’s oceans – a nod to the concerns of climate activists – with the female special agent.
More than 11 tonnes of packaging waste was also recycled, while producers sent 30 tonnes of food waste and biodegradable packaging to ‘anaerobic fermentation’, in which microorganisms break down material and produce a gas that can be used to generate electricity.
A further 1.6 tonnes of food was donated to feed the homeless by the charity of City Harvest.

Last year, the Mail revealed that Fleabag maker Phoebe Waller-Bridge had been introduced as a screenwriter to ensure that the blockbuster was suitable for the # MeToo era.
And now we have learned more secrets from the £ 200 million film that will be released in April.
The script lets Bond marry Dr. Madeleine Swann – the psychologist played by the French actress Lea Seydoux who first appeared in 2015’s Specter. But she refuses to accept her new husband’s name.

The morning after their marriage, Bond wakes up sleepily and says “Good morning, Mrs. Bond,” to which she replies, “Don’t you mean Mrs. Swann?”
A source said: “The expression” Bondgirl “was banned from the set. The women in this film are all strong, brave and fiercely independent. These women are not helpless girls who jump into bed with Bond – their reactions are very different from what people might think.
‘Bond tries his usual seduction techniques, but they fail miserably. It’s very funny. “
Ms. Lynch, 31, said about her double O role: “Everyone really responded to having her what I wanted. You get a fresh look at a brand new black woman in the Bond world. “
She was determined that her character should be a “real” woman who has problems with her weight and maybe wonders what is going on with her boyfriend.

At the start of the new film, Bond officially ‘retired’ to Jamaica and gave up his 007 references and license to kill.
Eve Moneypenny actress Naomie Harris also revealed that the female characters ‘drive’ the plot in the new film.
When she spoke to The Guardian this month, the British actress, 43, revealed that she and the other three female protagonists, Lea Seydoux, Ana de Armas and Lashana Lynch, play incredibly prominent roles in the film alongside Craig.
“In Bond 25 you have four strong, intelligent women who are responsible for driving the plot forward,” said the star – criticizing her role as Eve Moneypenny. “They’ve never had that in Bond.”
Naomie added the character of Daniel: “He doesn’t respect women, he doesn’t look for women because of how attractive she looks and what quality she has.
“He really has a relationship with a woman he respects, loves and cherishes,” she concluded about his romance with the character of Léa.
Explanation: The No Time To Die trailer has revealed strong female protagonists with Lashana Lynch as Nomi (L) – reportedly the first female 007 – in addition to help Paloma (Ana de Armas, R)
Speaking of their hugely important roles in the series, Ana, who takes on the role of Paloma, has previously gushed about the ability of her female co-stars to ‘wear the pants’ in the film.
This is due to reports that Fleabag maker Phoebe was hired to ‘wake up’ 007 and make it more up to date in the area of women’s rights.
Waller-Bridge also argued against this during an interview with Deadline in May. She said: ‘There is much talk about whether or not it is [the Bond franchise] is now relevant because of who he is and the way he treats women. I think that is b ***** ks!
“I think he is absolutely relevant now. It just has to grow. It just has to evolve and the most important thing is that the film treats the women well. He doesn’t have to. He must be faithful to this character. ”
James Bond fans congratulated writer Phoebe for defending women’s empowerment after the first full trailer for the latest installment was released last year.
New wheels: Craig drives both a hybrid Valhalla and an electric Rapide E model (photo). Only 155 of the £ 250,000 vehicles have been built. However, the character has not stopped flying, with filming in Italy, Jamaica, Norway and London
The new promotional clip sent viewers in the melt, while lead actress Lashana was revealed as fierce agent Nomi – reportedly the first female 007 – alongside James Bond actor Daniel Craig, his love Madeleine (Lea Seydoux) and his help Paloma, played by Ana de Armas.
And with the theme of feminism in the film, enthusiastic social media users have praised Pheaebe from Fleabag for bringing female characters to the forefront of the iconic franchise.
A delighted fan wrote: “We are powerful women in the 007 franchise #NoTimeToDie.”
Another tweeted: “I will see it because I want to know what a Bond movie with fingerprints from Phoebe Waller-Bridges looks like. And because of Lashana Lynch. So yes, for the first time I see a Bond movie because of the women. “
The first trailer for the film showed Bond’s first meeting with Nomi who briefly tells him: “The world has moved on with Commander Bond. If you get in my way, I’ll put a bullet in your knee. The one who works. “
When Bond asks her if she is a double 0, she confirms that she was two years old.
Daniel will also be the first Bond to embrace his gray hair in the upcoming movie.
The actor tried to hide his natural shadow in previous films, but it has been reported that this time Daniel seems to be a bit ‘mature’, perfect for his last time as Bond.
Meanwhile, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has revealed that she was “destroyed” when Craig said No Time To Die would be his last 007 film.
“It’s pretty devastating,” she said rich.
Broccoli added: “[And] if he had not returned [for No Time To Die], I went to put a comforter on my head and cry for three years. ”
No Time To Die will be released in British cinemas on April 3, 2020.
