Wes Anderson’s New Commercial Spots


We’ve previously pointed out many of the big name directors who got their start on the small screen directing commercials for everything from alcohol and computers, to high-end fashion designs and public television stations. As commercials become more cinematic and complex, we’ve been seeing renowned filmmakers making adverts for TV just ‘cuz — and one of those directors is Wes Anderson. You probably caught his Hyundai commercials during Oscar breaks last night. SlashFilm shared the whimsically charming shorts, which we’ve posted for you past the break. There’s definitely a little Life Aquatic in “Talk to My Car,” while “Modern Life” shares the director’s signature retro set stylings. Oh, and that voice you hear in “Talk to My Car?” It’s none other than Jeff Bridges.
