It’s been a while I haven’t seen an ad that catapulted an otherwise unknown brand at the forefront of the fashion world.
Move aside Gucci, Vuitton and Chanel, here comes Viva Vena. Featuring brilliantly awkward actress Lizzy Caplan (of Means Girls fame) the ad does a great job turning the usual stereotypes of inane fashion advertising.
Remember our entry in 7Things No.18 where Brad Pitt was talking non-sense in the latest Chanel No.5 commercial? Well this is taking it to a whole new level.
Enjoy the film.
After you’ve been lulled into a cozy, comfortable coma by the whispered gibberish of Janis Ian, check out “Une Fille Comme Les Autres,” another anti-fashion ad fashion ad by the same director. In that one, a commercial for cool-sexy-whatever French fashion magazine, Jalouse, an unseen narrator describes what a cool-sexy-whatever French fashion magazine commercial might look like (the answer: the sixties.) It’s less soothing than “Fashion Film,” but several degrees more hilarious. Via Gawker
