De Niro joins Federer for new Swiss tourism video

Roger Federer, newly appointed tourism ambassador for Switzerland, has starred in a new film for the destination.

He is joined by legendary actor and Oscar winner Robert De Niro.

In the short film, De Niro turns down an invitation by Roger Federer to be part of a movie about Switzerland.

De Niro thinks, the destination is pure, impressive and utterly beautiful - but there is no drama in Switzerland, something De Niro focuses his acting upon.

The film can be seen above.

“I was really excited to have a worldwide campaign where I can invite people to Switzerland to highlight its beauty because I am so very proud to be from such a beautiful country,” explained Federer.

To do so, the tennis great reached out for support from Hollywood.
