When 'Tomorrow Never Dies' was about to open in America in December 1997, Visa - one of the commercial sponsors with product placement in the movie - produced a 60 second TV advertisement.

Not only did Pierce Brosnan appear in character as James Bond, but he also was joined by Desmond Llewelyn as Q, and Christina Hendricks (then unknown, but now famous for her role in 'Mad Men'). The spot used original sets and was only seen in the USA.
