The legendary actor has agreed to star in the Madrid Fusion Alimentos de España advertising campaign for free, in exchange for a unique tasting menu

Leo Burnett Convinces Robert de Niro to be the Face of Madrid Fusion 2022

Following the confirmation by the great American actor, who three days later has accepted the challenge launched on Twitter and Instagram by Madrid Fusion Alimentos de España, five of the best chefs in the world will fulfil their promise to prepare the menu, just once and exclusively for Mr. de Niro, on a date to be determined, always before the 2022 edition of this global gastronomic forum.

On Monday 24th, Madrid Fusion Alimentos de España launched a video (#invaluablefood) inviting the actor to promote the congress in exchange for "the food of his life". He had 48 hours to respond. In the end it took 72 hours, but yesterday he accepted and sent us a video: “I'm in. Of course, I'm in. Gracias Madrid Fusion. See you whenever I get over there” 

In this way, Robert de Niro –recognised himself as foodie and businessman with catering establishments all over the world, including Spain- will become the image of Madrid Fusion Food from Spain 2022. In exchange, on a date to be set before January 15, 2022, he will be invited to taste the promised "priceless food".  

The tasting menu will be served by five of the best chefs in the world: Joan Roca, Martín Berasategui, José Andrés, Mauro Colagreco and Quique Dacosta, chefs and entrepreneurs with a combined total of 25 Michelin stars.

The campaign video, created by Leo Burnett Madrid and produced by Attic Films under the direction of César Conti, urged the renowned American actor to comment on the offer. As time was running out, he sent the organisation a message to say that he would think about it and yesterday confirmed his response to this campaign, which has had enormous international repercussions. Many have tried to mediate and, in many cases, have been proposed to replace De Niro, but it will not be possible…
