Hollywood star fumes at mimics

A star-studded commercial for the BMW 5 Series brought laughs to millions of people across the United States when it screened during this year’s Super Bowl.

The German marque teamed up with Hollywood A-lister Christopher Walken for its 60-second commercial that was shown part-way through the American football showpiece on February 12.

Titled “Talkin’ Like Walken”, the advert features him driving the BMW i5 and encountering a number of characters, including one played by Emily in Paris actor Ashley Park, who poke fun at his distinctive voice and cadence. 

Initially confused by the mimics, Walken grows increasingly frustrated by their efforts and the commercial culminates in a chance encounter with Usher, the halftime performer at this year’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
