George Clooney marries in a Norwegian commercial: Watch, and pretend that it could happen to you

As many leggy European beauties have learned the hard way, George Clooney is an eternal bachelor. Off limits. Emotionally unavailable. He’s basically everything you wouldn’t want in a husband, minus the ridiculous good looks, undeniable talent, humanitarian interests, money, and charm.

Okay, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad dragging Clooney to the altar. Unfortunately, the actor insists that it will never happen. This is what makes Norwegian bank DNB NOR’s commercial so dang funny, yet utterly infuriating at the same time.

A newly wed woman wakes up in a beautiful white room with a giant rock on her finger and a strange horse head mask in her bed. She walks around in a daze and sorts through wedding photos until Clooney enters. “Well hey there,” he says with a smile. “I was letting you sleep.” Then he kisses her gently on the head as he shows her a photo of the home he was researching on the Internet. “For us,” he says.

Sit back and allow yourself to fantasize about a world in which George Clooney would let you sleep in and buy you choice real estate. Try not to kick anything, and let us know what you think in the comments!
