The Newest Bond Movie? A Heineken Commercial (Really)

'The Chase' has the music, the stunts and Daniel Craig playing the British superspy

Those jonesing for a new Bond chase sequence won't have to wait until November's Spectre for their fix after all; a new promo for Heineken, starring Daniel Craig, features Bond in action — even if it does focus on the unintended collateral damage caused by the superspy along the way.

"The Chase," a 90-second spot promoting both the Dutch beer and upcoming Bond feature from director Sam Mendes, features Craig on the run from some local heavies, which leads to a speedboat chase with a very surprised water boarder (French actress Zara Prassinot) brought along unexpectedly.

Along the way, the short revisits some moments from Bond history, including a blink-and-you'll-miss-it posthumous cameo from Herve Villechaize, who played Nick Nack in 1974's The Man With the Golden Gun, and a hat-throw that echoes the signature move of Harold Sakata's Oddjob from 1964's Goldfinger.

Watch "The Chase" below. If it makes you want more, don't worry — Spectre will be in theaters Nov. 6. In the meantime, remember: Neither shake nor stir a Heineken.
