Gabriel Macht, best known for his Suits character Harvey Specter, endorses Madinat Jumeirah Living.

Gabriel Macht, a popular celebrity that appears as Harvey Specter in American legal drama Suits, has appeared in an ad for Dubai Holding’s newly launched freehold Madinat Jumeirah Living residences.

Dubai Holding’s ad sees Macht outlining his “kind of” sights and sounds offered by Madinat Jumeirah Living – a stark contrast against the typical “downtown” lifestyle, which sees Macht struggling in crowded restaurants and traffic congestion.

“There’s a lot to like about downtown,” Macht says in the new Dubai Holding ad.

“The sights, the sounds, the crowd, the madness – but the best part about downtown, is leaving downtown.”

The star of Suits – which until recently also featured the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle – then goes on to endorse Madinat Jumeirah Living’s calmer and luxurious lifestyle. The gated community’s exclusivity is showcased through spacious living rooms featuring direct views of Burj Al Arab.

Ground will break on the 35.8ha Madinat Jumeirah Living this year, Dubai Holding revealed at Cityscape Global 2018 in Dubai.

The project will feature gated residential clusters, a community centre, retail areas, and residential amenities such as day care centres, concierge services, basement and visitor parking, and swimming pools.

We love this view of Madinat Jumeirah Living AND Burj Al Arab. Dubai Holding has revealed that ground will break on this brand new 36ha project in 2019, and Phase 1 will complete 30 months later. The luxury residential development will mirror the look and feel of the popular Madinat Jumeirah Resort.

The new Dubai Holding ad’s tone is reminiscent of Dubai Properties’ ad for 1/JBR, which went viral in 2017 and currently has 4.8 million views on YouTube.

Best remembered for its tongue-in-cheek humour, the 1/JBR ad boldly turns away “ostentatious displays of wealth”, “bathrooms blinged out with gold taps”, “a downtown address”, and “chandeliers dripping with diamonds”.

“If your sunsets have to have Instagrammable dancing fountains, your hopes will be dashed,” says the British actor advertising for 1/JBR.

“1/JBR – it’s not for everyone.”
