Commercial Break: Brad Pitt and Wes Anderson Unite.

In 2008, Wes Anderson teamed up with Brad Pitt for a Japanese commercial for SoftBank cell phones. The commercial takes inspiration from Jacques Tati’s classic “Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot”. Anderson filmed Pitt in one continuous shot at a French seaside town.

We really dig the head-to-toe yellow tourist look. This 30 second spot sure gets across everything we love about a full length Wes Anderson Film. We’d love to see Brad Pitt and Wes working together on more projects!
