In a Swiss Tourism commercial, Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer can be seen inviting Hollywood star Robert De Niro to make a “Swiss film”.
Federer is the new ambassador of Switzerland Tourism.
In the video, available on Switzerland Tourism’s official YouTube account, Federer asks De Niro if he has watched the tourism promotional film he sent him. The film in question portrays the natural beauty of the landscapes of the European country. De Niro replies that he watched the movie and that he doesn’t like it.
Federer, who is currently watching the Alps, is stunned. De Niro says his reason is that Switzerland is too perfect and the people are too nice. There is no drama for De Niro, who is best known for his dark crime thrillers and mob movies.
The Goodfellas actor goes on to suggest that Federer should contact Tom Hanks instead. To which Federer responds: “Who?”
On the job side, De Niro has films like Canterbury Glass, Wash Me in the River, and Killers of the Flower Moon on the horizon.
