Nicolas Winding Refn’s Hennessy Commercial Is Exactly What You’d Expect

by Charles Bramesco March 16, 2016 @ 11:08 AM
Even for a big-name auteur, there’s no shame in directing a commercial every now and then. Martin Scorsese shilled for casinos in Macau, David Lynch repped Calvin Klein, and Wes Anderson’s probably enjoying a lifetime supply of Stella Artois right about now. It’s a nice fat paycheck, and an easy way to keep busy between jobs. Nicolas Winding Refn has never been shy about corporate partnerships, agreeing to a spot for Gucci featuring Blake Lively, not to mention those stylish but inscrutable Lincoln advertisements with koan-dispensing Matthew McConaughey. Refn has now gotten back in the commercial game while his latest feature The Neon Demon (which, how has that not been the title of any of his films until now?) awaits release with a new spot for Hennessy.

A few years ago, Old Navy featured recognizable actors from old TV shows -- like Morgan Fairchild, Joan Collins and Fran Drescher -- in its commercials. The ads were weird but well-received, so the company is giving the concept another whirl.
This time? It's 'Blossom' stars Mayim Bialik and Joey Lawrence taking center-stage.

The film's due out June 8, but we're now getting TV spots for the upcoming feature, which suggests that 20th Century Fox is fairly confident about the film they've got. And this new commercial makes us just as confident.
