The award-winning Austrian actor, Christoph Waltz, is the newest celebrity fan to join Mandarin Oriental’s USD multi-million global advertising campaign “He’s a Fan/She’s a Fan”.
The campaign elegantly connects Mandarin Oriental’s well-recognised symbol, the fan, with international celebrities who regularly stay at the group’s hotels.
In appreciation of their support, the group donates to each celebrity’s individual choice of charity.
Waltz has chosen Médecins sans Frontières to benefit.
Waltz is widely known for his performances in two of American filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino’s movies, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained.
Both gained him Academy Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTAs and a Cannes Best Actor Award.
He also played James Bond’s nemesis in the twenty-fourth Bond film, Spectre.
Well-known portrait photographer Mary McCartney photographs each celebrity in a location of their choice, Waltz chose to be photographed in Malibu, California.
“The award-winning campaign continues to make a strong statement about the group in a simple and luxurious manner, and we are delighted to welcome Christoph Waltz as our newest ambassador,” said Jill Kluge, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group director of brand communications.
“By focusing on celebrities who evidently appreciate the finer things in life, we have been able to showcase our hotels in a far more interesting way than traditional hotel advertising,” she added.
