A mastermind behind the cult movie "The Room" appears in a commercial warning everybody about the cybersecurity threats from "bad actors." Tommy Wiseau ad for 1Password may actually be one of his best acting roles to date.


What happened: bad actors are stealing your data online. Who's a better messenger for the importance of cybersecurity than Tommy Wiseau?

In January 2022 the company raised $620 million in a biggest round in Canadian history. Apart from Ryan Reynolds, the app was backed by Robert Downey Jr., and Justin Timberlake.

A year ago, Reynolds already donned its marketing akumen to 1Password by appearing in their ad:
