Wacky Japanese Commercial directed by Wes Anderson starring Brad Pitt

Wes Anderson has joined the ranks of several other Hollywood types that have shot commercials for zany Japanese products. This ad for Japanese Cell company Softbank Mobile was directed by Anderson and is apparently inspired by the 1953 French Film "Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot." I not going to pretend to know anything about that film, but the spot definitely has that signature Wes Anderson/Hotel Chevalier feel to it. Oh yeah, and did I mention it stars a certain "Benjamin Button" star? (which was a rad film btw)- Yes, first name Brad, last name Pitt:

  2. You say, "What the Fuck?", or in Japanese, "Nani?"
