Peep The Casino Commercial Directed By Scorcese

Speaking of Macau, famed Oscar-winning director Martin Scorcese joined forces with two of his most famous leading men Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DiNiro to shoot "The Audition" a promotional commercial for the forthcoming Macao Studio City project from Melco Crown Entertainment. Check it out:

Macau Studio City is sort of similar to Echelon project on the Las Vegas Strip, the building construction was halted in 2009 when original owners pulled the plug, it was then taken over by Melco Crown Entertainment and construction began again. Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL) is a partnership between Lawrence Ho (son of Macau gambling magnate Stanley Ho) and James Packer (head of Crown Entertainment, the folks putting up the cash to build Élan Resort where the New Frontier once stood.

In 2007 I went on a fact finding mission in Macau and wrote a diary of the trip, which included eyeballing the Studio City project as it was still in construction.

And finally, in other Macau news, Dunkin' Donuts announced they will open 1,400 new stores in China over the next 20 years, including Macau.

See you guys at #MIMFP 2016 at Wynn Palace opening!

Big thanks to VT superfriend rsuavé for the Scorcese tip.

They've done a second commercial for Melco, this time for City Of Dreams Manila. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go_D2WpH-eA

Showed it to my wife and she was confused. Are they playing themselves in this movie? Nope, just a commercial.

It's weird but i like it.
