Dolmio 2017 ‘No Drama’ Advert Starring Actor Dominic West

Dolmio Advert 2017 – Watch the full video of Dolmio’s brand-new ‘No Drama’ YouTube and TV commercial for their Spaghetti Bolognese sauce, starring The Wire actor Dominic West. #Nodrama


In a change to the companies long-running ad campaigns featuring their Italian puppet family, Dolmio have now decided to get real.

This first advert shows a common dinnertime scenario where a mum asks her son to stop playing a video game and get ready to eat at the table. But just as he begins to explain how it isn’t just a game, his dad steps in with an extremely dramatic, Hollywood-style explanation of why they must play on.

His over the top emotional and inspirational speech is cut short when the mum asks “Spag bol anyone?”, which quickly leads to everyone sitting together at the dinner table.

Although speaking in an American accent, the dad in this TV ad is played by British actor Dominic West, who’s best known for playing the role of Jimmy McNulty in US crime drama The Wire.

We believe the lady playing the mum in this ad is British comedy actress and writer Katherine Jakeways.

The above full length 60-second version of this ‘No Drama’ advert was posted to the official Dolmio YouTube channel on the 18th of August, 2017, with the commercial due to begin airing right away on TV.
