James Bond movies and franchise have been around for a few decades. James Bond, the protagonist, the super agent, super hero, super man is  a world famous fantasy. However, despite his maverick ways he is part of a clearly defined system, he works for an institution. This video turns its attention to Moneypenny, who as one of the supporting acts, (almost) always also returns with every new film. Originally she was introduced as M’s secretary with a supposed longing for the elusive agent but may be there is more to her than meets the eye. Here is the video evidence, quoting everyday experts and reconstructing the scenario. Most certainly a conversation piece.

German: Der Videobeweis. Was macht Moneypenny, wenn Bond nicht da ist? Was ist ihr wahres Ich? Was wäre wenn Moneypenny ein Mann wäre? Was kann man aus Bond Filmen fürs Leben lernen? Und wie wird man ohne große Mühe zum perfekten Bettvorleger? In der Gegenüberstellung von echtem, natürlich neu-editierten Bondmaterial und mental gespeicherten Bondbildern von ausgewählten Alltagsexperten kommen erstaunliche Erkenntnisse zu Tage. Ein Unterhaltungsstück, zur Förderung einer Unterhaltung mit Ihrem Nachbarn und selbstverständlich eine tiefgründige Medienreflexion.
