Actor Jeff Bridges has reprised his classic movie character “The Dude” from “The Big Lebowski” for a new advertisement promoting the stoner icon’s favorite cocktail.

The Kahlua commercial pays tribute to the vodka-based drink the White Russian, which Bridges, as Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski, famously slurped throughout the 1998 cult comedy, and the Oscar-winner insists he was more than happy to revisit “The Dude” and take part in the shoot.

He tells People.com, “As a short film entirely inspired by a simple classic cocktail, this story is creative, enigmatic and beautifully shot.”

The White Russian ad, directed by Ivan Zacharias, follows “the unlikely meeting of two men from different worlds, as told by a man reminiscing about his past adventures”.

REVIEW: In-fighting is entertaining in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

13-overlay

"Civil War" stands out as certainly the biggest of the stand-alones, and among the best because of what it has in common with the better films in the Marvel universe: the conflict is deeply human, told humorously, and best enjoyed if you don't overthink it.
