George Clooney rocks a Galaxy Nexus at Android ad filming

George Clooney rocks a Galaxy Nexus at Android ad filming
It's after midnight on the east coast, so we feel like it's a good time to take a break from real news for a minute, and let you know that George Clooney was spotted filming a commercial for an Android smartphone in Malibu yesterday. This is some game-changing news here people!

Okay, not really, but it is interesting. It's unclear what exactly the commercial is going to be, although it is said to have been an Android commercial. It doesn't seem to be a commercial for the Galaxy Nexus itself because the Samsung branding was blacked out on the phone. As far as we know, the Nexus could be Clooney's personal phone. If it is, we'd assume he's got an unlocked GSM model, so he can just swap the SIM card as he jets around the globe making movies and generally being a cool dude. 

We'll be sure to bring you the actual commercial when it comes out. If nothing else, Clooney is by far the biggest name to be in an Android commercial. Actually, he's probably the biggest name to be in any smartphone commercial in a while, because as much as we love Samuel L. and Zooey, George is on a different level. 

All right, enough of the hard-hitting news, time to get back to the real stuff.
