Jovovich shared her opinion about Budapest and she found the Hungarian capital simply amazing.
Speaking Hungarian in an advertisement
Recently, Adrien Brody greeted the audience with a Hungarian exclamation in Johnnie Walker’s commercial. We might have thought it was not possible to do anything cooler than that, but the protagonist of the next chapter of the “The Walkers” campaign, Milla Jovovich, showed that it is possible to go even further.
The new commercial encourages viewers to be bold, confident, and not afraid to step out of their comfort zone. “In today’s world of unprecedented change, it’s important to be able to stay positive and move forward on our own,” the star summed up the campaign’s main message. “We can overcome these challenges if we move forward boldly, and use this example to encourage others not to give up. We are stronger together,” said the actress, according to roadster.hu.
At the end of the video, Jovovich says a loud “Egészségedre!” – which is the Hungarian equivalent of “cheers”.
The fast-paced and dynamic commercial is linked to Milla Jovovich in several ways: her personal story inspired the work, and her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, sat in the director’s chair. “My husband and I make a great team and authentically blend my character with the stylish elegance of Johnnie Walker. I enjoyed immersing ourselves in the world of Johnnie Walker to create something truly memorable together. I can fully identify with the message because the idea of pushing boundaries is not far from me. Action – walking, if you like – is the driving force for change, an inspiring and motivating force. Deeds are always louder than words,” Milla Jovovich recalled the shoot.
Milla Jovovich about Budapest
“I found Budapest simply amazing, and I would point out that I worked in a lot of places in the world, so I have many cities in my mind to compare.
Budapest is super lovely, civilised, the food is amazing, the people are charming, it is a real cosmopolitan big city. The mood seemed light, and it gave me the impression of a happy city.
I worked in several big cities in Eastern Europe that looked very dark in the emotional sense of the word. It seemed to me that Budapest was profiting from the thriving film industry, and part of the revenue was being spent on developing and creating the right conditions for cosmopolitan people.
The hotels are amazing, the restaurants are fantastic! I always had the feeling that I was walking in an amazing city.
I would be happy if I had to shoot in Budapest again because there are times when I hear where we are going to work, and I know that there is nothing in that city. Budapest is a real treat at the same time!”
