Seth MacFarlane serves up a martini for James Bond in Oscars promo

Posted on

Seth MacFarlane, what a lucky guy. He scores a gig hosting the Oscars and a job making drinks for James Bond. Or at least, he briefly plays bartender in a commercial that promotes the Academy Awards’ planned tribute to the British spy.

Following up his first round of commercials promoting the Oscars, in this latest ad, MacFarlane appears opposite Pierce Brosnan’s Bond from 1999’s The World Is Not Enough with the help of a little computer magic.

Warning, humorless Bond fans: MacFarlane’s irreverent humor in the following ad may break down your image of 007 as a constantly cool and suave. Watch it below:

The 85th Academy Awards will be telecast on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET on ABC.
