Anderson meets Artois

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

It's not often we'll plug an advert. In fact, it goes against everything we believe in to plug an advert. But when it's an advert this good, we reckon it's just about justifiable.

Directed by the masterful Wes Anderson (of The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic fame) and Roman Coppola (a music video director who's worked with the likes of Phoenix, among others) the advert, complete with the tagline "she is a thing of beauty", doesn't match up to Anderson's 2006 stab at ad land - which saw him produce a masterful one-shot short film, staring his casting staples Jason Schwartzman and Waris Ahluwalia - but it comes pretty close.

Featuring all the understated sepia tones, contrasting primary colours and chintz-chic we've come to associate with Anderson, alongside all the gadgety goodness for which Coppola's known, the advert is funny, frivolous and ridiculously French. Brill.
