Wes Anderson's AT&T Commercials

Whether you like Wes Anderson or think he's a pretentious twerp—and really, couldn't it be both?—you have to admit the man knows how to put a commercial together. While these new spots for AT&T aren't as tongue-in-cheek as his previous work for American Express, they show tremendous technical chops from his set designs and crew. I don't know what the message is, exactly—AT&T phones work in even the most remote dinner theater playhouses?—but I like it all the same. Golden Fiddle has collected them all for your viewing, provided you like the one above. Wes Anderson's AT&T Commercials [GoldenFiddle.com via Kottke]

    I was struck by how much the large sets and final punch line mimics the “christmahanakwanzika” commercials from Virgin mobile a couple of years back.

    Anyone besides me notice that the same four actors appear in all four spots? I find that kind of cool–makes the spots stand out. And if a fifth one hits the air, I’ll be using my TiVo to see if I can spot the actors from the previous four.
