Puerto Rican actor Benicio del Toro recently lent his talents to a well-loved Dutch beer brand, making for a comedic Heineken commercial that's ready for the Christmas holidays. Just half a minute long, the ad depicts the celebrity opening gifts from friends and family.

As he states, "It allows me to showcase my range as an actor." He expresses both gratitude and and a sense of surprise towards everyone who offers him a gift, no matter how obvious the contents of the wrapping paper are or how little he actually wants it.

Near the end of the Heineken commercial however, he pulls a box of beer from under the fridge, at which point he laughs to the camera and reveals that he got it for himself. With this ad, the Dutch beer brand conveys the tradition it's always adhered to, as well as the importance that it places on its family ownership.
