Wes Anderson, director and writer of such campy, understated films as The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou… also makes commercials. His signature stage-like transitions, frank dialogue and retro aesthetic make him highly unique and have garnered him a strong following of loyal fans. That signature style has made it into most of the commercials found here, created for the likes of AT&T, Stella Artois, Ikea and even ex-presidential candidate John McCain (humorously made when he was lagging in the polls). It’s just a taste of what we might expect from Anderson’s next release, Moonrise Kingdom, in 2012.
Wes Anderson Makes Campy Commercials
Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea. When not impressing people with his humbling humility, he can be found freelance writing, finding shiny objects on the internet, enjoying the company of much-appreciated friends and living out his nomadic nature. He is Managing Editor of Visual News. Follow his movements on Twitter:
