Wes Anderson Commercials

Did you know Wes Anderson shoots commercials? You did? I didn't. WHY ARE THESE THINGS ALWAYS HIDDEN FROM ME? Adweek has 10 Great TV Spots by Wes Anderson that advertise crap like beer, phones, cars, bullcrap like that crap. "Tell people to buy our crap!" the ad execs yell at Mr. Anderson. "Okay," Wes Anderson says, quietly smiling with the secret knowledge that instead he will tell people about magic robots, harried husbands, and the French countryside.
My favorite ad is the kid-narrated one he did for Samsung, which unexpectedly made me cry like Robert DeNiro in Analyze This.
