Cool Commercial Alert!

I've never heard of Oliver Peoples, so I Googled him and found that his name attached to a line of eyewear (which put this video in a different perspective), so he's either a designer or just a name of a brand. Either way, this video from 2010, "Les Enfants S'ennuient le Dimanche (The Children are Bored on Sundays)" was, while essentially a commercial, pretty cool and reminds me a little of a Wes Anderson movie. It's got the Elijah Wood and the Shirley Manson (from Garbage*) and a golf ball. And whoever Zee Avi is, she's playing her song "Just You and Me". And whoever Autumn De Wilde is, she's directing it.
Apparently, Oliver Peoples goes in for this sort of advertising. Their 2009 campaign was a short film with Zooey Deschahoweverit'sspelled.

* Remember them?
