A Series of Promotional PayPal Videos (2012)
Total Goldblum rating: 9/10
Jeff Goldblum explains why you—yes, you!—should be using PayPal for all of your purchases online, over the phone, and in stores (such as, quote, your “favorite juice shop”).
Goldblum presence: 10/10
Obviously, the marketing geniuses at PayPal (no sarcasm) realized they should just put Jeff Goldblum in front of a camera and let him go.
Goldblum hotness: 9/10
Distinguished Older Gentleman, yes! Excellent vest and collared shirts. The hair, however, could stand to be a smidge longer.
Naturally the videos are each one solid rapid monologue, and the exaggerated befuddlement at having to find one’s credit card to make an online purchase is a perfect opportunity for crazy eyes. While close-ups preclude illustrations of height, there’s never been such floating hands as those pantomiming the use of a keyboard.
And with these videos, a new facet of Goldbluminess has become clear: There are only four videos, yet they feature three slightly different pairs of glasses.
