Watch Wes Anderson's Adorable Animated Sony Commercial


Did Moonrise Kingdom go way over budget or something? We ask because Wes Anderson has been doing a lot of high-profile commercial work lately, which suggests he’s in need of some fast cash. You may recall that his duo of Hyundai ads premiered during the Oscars; today, he’s launching a series of short films for the Sony Xperia smartphone. In these minute-long collaborations with the animator Laika, kids explain their adorable theories on how the phone work, and the pair brings them to life. The first one — ostensibly from the mind of eight-year-old Jake Ryan — involves robots. Lots of them. Excellent.
