Squarespace: Who is johnmalkovich.com?

Short Form

We teamed up with John Malkovich and Squarespace to take on Super Bowl Sunday’s most competitive game: the commercials. In the spot, the Being John Malkovich actor and the website platform gave viewers a funny and relatable glimpse of John Malkovich’s fight for a custom domain for his debut clothing line’s website. “How is it that JohnMalkovich.com is taken?” asks a shocked Malkovich. It appears the other man of the same name is a fishing guru who has dedicated the URL to the ultimate fishing site. The spot went on to win the 2017 Emmy Award for Outstanding Commercial.
