It’s a fun treat when directors you admire get hired to direct really cool-looking commercials. Spike Jonze’s fragrance ad featuring an acrobatic Margaret Qualley went viral last year. Neill Blomkamp has a whole series of commercials detailing the exploits of Clive Owen’s mysterious “Driver,” a man hired for his getaway car skills who just so happens to drive a fancy-schmancy BMW. Now, Justin Lin, whom you might know best from the Fast & Furious movies, has joined the fray with a futuristic and yet realistic commercial for a company called Arconic inspired by The Jetsons.

But the four-minute clip titled “Come Together” arrives as a pleasant surprise all the same, injecting some much-needed Yuletide cheer into a Monday morning.

We don't make a habit here of posting commercials as news. But there is an exception to every rule and said exception is when there's a commercial with 'Expendables 2' star Terry Crews hooked up to electrodes that allow him to control musical instruments with his muscles. Somehow it's even more bizarre and hilarious than it sounds.

Celebrity personal assistants are surely sweating bullets after seeing Apple's latest Siri ad, in which Zooey Deschanel and Samuel L. Jackson are seen consulting the monotone oracle on mundane tasks like ordering tomato soup, tracking down organic mushrooms and confirming that the water falling from the sky is indeed rain.
