Wes Anderson Meets the Addams Family in Beautifully Crazy Ad for an Optician
You've never seen an optician ad that's anywhere near as wild as this one. Washington, D.C., agency Design Army created the spot for Georgetown Optician, and it's just a crazy mix of wry humor, gorgeously weird design and loopy narrative. The inspiration is clearly Wes Anderson, with some Addams Family thrown in—just in time for Halloween!
Last month, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences phoned Jean-Luc Godard to tell him that he would receive an Honorary Oscar at their November 13 Governors Awards event. Characteristically, the French film director (who’s been known to scoff at Hollywood before) seemed not to care — so much, in fact, that he didn’t return their phone call.
