David Lynch Sells Out, Peddles Gucci

October 1, 2007

I know David Lynch has done some commercial work in the past, and that it's not uncommon for modern directors to pawn products, but seeing this commercial by the Eraserhead director for Gucci by Gucci was still a real disappointment. This minute of models doing what must be the waifish equivalent of dancing (swaying gently with passing breezes) to the tune of "Heart of Glass," all I could think was, "Oh god, was there a time when David Lynch would dance to Blondie?" I never wanted to know that. That and I never like seeing something from David Lynch that makes sense on the initial viewing.
