Hollywood superstar Jeff Goldblum popped into Sydney for a whirlwind visit to team up with Australia’s best home delivery service Menulog, but he hasn’t finished dishing up some goodness for Australian’s.
It’s been the question on everyone’s lips: what was Hollywood superstar Jeff Goldblum doing delivering snags to Sydney-siders?Launched today, Goldblum features in five different TVCs for Menulog, that encourage Aussies to spend more time enjoying the range of delicious cuisines Australia has to offer – just as he did while down under.
The series sees Jeff, with his characteristic humour, telling Aussies ‘Less Talk; More Eat’. With a huge number of Aussies still ordering over the phone, only 20 percent have ever ordered takeaway online! Jeff persuades us to get of the ‘dinosaur’ telephone, and onto 8,600+ restaurants on the Menulog App. With faster ordering, more convenience and no “please hold”, Jeff said the Menulog app was a “no-brainer” and “Menulog gets 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums!”
In his one-of-a-kind way, Jeff said “Food, glorious food! Australian vittles are tippity top! The crackerjack home delivery service (of which Menulog is an exemplar) is one of the cosmic ecstasies! “The Menulog credo fits me like a flesh tuxedo! Less think – more eat, eat first – then talk. How’s that for phraseology conjugation?!”
While Jeff may have left Aussie shores (for now), next week he will be shouting 500 Aussies a Menulog meal on him, to celebrate the launch of his first foray into food delivery. Simply head to facebook.com/menulog next Tuesday 23 May 2017 for details on how to get one of Jeff’s Jazzy meals.
While you won’t see Jeff delivering these, he did get some solid experience for his role with Menulog whilst in the food truck. Jeff said: “My own (if temporary) food truck?! Excelsior!!!
Snags for all the gracious people of this fairest of lands! Menulog? – I call it Iloveyoulog!
Following the food truck, Jeff went on to a two-day shoot, where he found himself in some distinctly Australian scenarios (e.g. watching a game of footy), as well as a couple of confronting scenes (e.g. watching a game with a bloke in footy shorts). Menulog Head of Marketing, Tasman Page, said “Jeff’s creative input really made this campaign.
He was consistently coming up with new ideas on how to show people just how easy Menulog is and some of the benefits of the App.” Jeff added: “In one of our Menulog TV commercials, Mini Jeff’s body is 25% of my actual size (with the exception of one part, as per my contract). 25% off your first Menulog order?! Those words melt like honey in my brain (the organ, by the way, to which I alluded just prior).”
Over the next few months, Jeff will be showing Aussies all the different ways they can make their lives easier – and their mealtimes better – with discounts, freebies and more great stuff from Menulog. He’ll be popping up on TV, radio and social media in his quirky Goldblum style to share his tips and tricks.
