Director Wes Anderson, he of the requisite slow-motion scene in his much-gushed over movies like Bottle Rocket, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Royal Tenenbaums, is now bringing his twee touch to commercials for Hyundai.
With this move into a commercial acting gig, Wes joins the likes of fellow indie darling Michel Gondry, who brought us a giant foot sticking out of a car in Japan. That was a fun one.
We don’t want to be too laudatory because well, they’re car commercials (via Buzzfeed). But wouldn’t you rather watch a visually-neat, kooky little spot over the same old car driving fast around winding mountain roads with smug voiceover touting all its awards? Perhaps.
Or maybe Hollywood types should stick to justmaking movies. Ha! Fat chance.
