Daniel Craig of ’007′ fame was paid the hefty sum of $1 million to appear at a Range Rover event at the New York City Auto Show in Manhattan. Fantastic, right? Not really.
Fans who turned out to see the James Bond actor were upset when he left the venue seven minutes after making his grand entrance behind the wheel of a luxury ride. He exited the vehicle and posed briefly for photographers before beating feet for the exit.
Several guests spoke about their disappointment to the NY Post, saying, ““He didn’t even give a speech.” Another said, “I couldn’t even tell if he was actually here!”
Craig received top billing in order to draw consumers to the event and appeared in a video debuting the $70,000-plus 2014 Range Rover Sport.
A rep for Land Rover said, “We won’t comment on our relationship with Mr. Craig beyond confirming that Land Rover supports the charity S.A.F.E of which the actor is a patron and will continue its charitable efforts with a vehicle donation later this year.”
S.A.F.E is a Kenyan-based charity supporting the fight against a number of issues including HIV/AIDS and election violence.
