For Wes Anderson and Stella Artois fans….

13 Oct

As most of you know, Wes Anderson is one of my favorite directors. He also works frequently with Roman Coppola, son of Francis Ford Coppola for his films. Now the two have combined their geniuses for nothing other than a Stella Artois commercial. While Stella is not really my type of beer, their commercial style actually seems right up their alley.

A spokesman for Mother, the advertising firm that produced the one minute commercial had this to say about the project,

“We were really happy to have Wes and Roman on board. We wanted to set this brand and this film in a 1960s French film world and there’s a lot of that influence in Wes’ work. Also, Roman is a gadgets fanatic, so it was truly the best combination of talent to direct this commercial.”

Here is the finished product:

After watching it, I had mixed feelings. While it definitely had all the French stylings that Anderson digs and it was a beautifully shot commercial, I think I expected more. But, sometimes with Anderson’s work it takes some time to set in. I can’t believe I am devoting this much time talking about a commercial. Anyway…..what do you all think? Does it make you want a Stella?
