Lavazza to Nespresso: we were in heaven first

In the latest advertising campaign for Nespresso, George Clooney sits in heaven drinking coffee with John Malkovich as Saint Peter and two angels. Lavazza does not feel heavenly peace, however: the Italian coffee manufacturer claims the campaign is a blatant rip-off of its long-running campaign featuring a well-known Italian TV-host talking with Saint Peter about coffee. In heaven. It demands that Nestlé stop the campaign, "or else". Nestlé points out that heaven is not the exclusive realm of Lavazza.

Judge for yourselves, the two spots are below.
