George Clooney Nespresso commercial pays for his spy satellite over the Sudan.

THIS IS one of those celebrity stories I’ve followed with great interest, because George Clooney’s passion for Sudan is matched by his determination to make sure he can keep an eye on Omar al-Bashir.

George Clooney has been involved with Nespresso for most of his life, as he states in an interview with the Guardian. This relationship is now aiding Mr. Clooney in one of the most important issues of his life, one that he’s been committed to and gone to jail to publicize.

“Most of the money I make on the [Nespresso] commercials I spend keeping a satellite over the border of North and South Sudan to keep an eye on Omar al-Bashir [the Sudanese dictator charged with war crimes at The Hague]. Then he puts out a statement saying that I’m spying on him and how would I like it if a camera was following me everywhere I went and I go ‘well welcome to my life Mr War Criminal’. I want the war criminal to have the same amount of attention that I get. I think that’s fair.” [Guardian]

Back in 2012, George Clooney, along with his father, were arrested in Washington, D.C. during a protest against Sudan.
