Wes Anderson Directed 2 Hyundai Azera CommercialsBy: Jeremy Muncy - February 28, 2012
Wes Anderson movies aren’t for everyone. He has a very unique and strange way of telling a story, that I personally dig immensely. This past Sunday, during the Academy Awards, Anderson brought his quirkiness to the small screen with two commercials for the Hyundai Azera.
The first commercial, titled Talk to My Car, has a Knight Rider-ish sort of feel to it with the message: “with the Azera, we can speak to our cars”. Check it our for yourself below.
The second commercial, titled Modern Life, is a more contemporary setting, but with an Anderson twist. Check it out below.
It should be noted that this isn’t Anderson’s first foray into advertising, as he’s directed commercials for AT&T, Stella Artois, and even starred in one for American Express.
Wes Anderson’s next film, Moonrise Kingdom is slated to hit theaters in May. The film stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Anderson staples Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman.
