And here's Ken Loach's McDonalds advert! Where even a shopping trip is fraught with tension!

Lots of Jonathan Glazer would feature too including his 2002 Levis advert, though his "Follow The Yellow Brick Road" Wranglers commerical is his best! I suppose his post-Under The Skin package of idents for Channel 4 television in the UK would count too?

The Guinness adverts were in heavy rotation in the late 90s and early 2000s. Glazer also did Dreamer

He also directed the great Stella Artois advert with the ice skating priests, featuring Zbigniew Zamachowski, the star of Kieslowski's Three Colours: White!

Have you seen his banned advert for Cadbury's Flake? It's my favourite of his

https://vimeo.com/21190241

It was either banned or rejected by Cadbury the story doesn't seem to be clear. The main character is some unholy alliance of Lord Byron, Beelzebub, Charles II and Mick Jagger. The photography is amazing.

Speaking of which Glazer also directed Denis Lavant in that very Jean de Florette-esque Stella Artois advert Last Orders (the third Stella Artois advert Glazer did was Devil's Island, featuring Ron Perlman).

(And Lavant appears in that UNKLE-Thom Yorke music video, Rabbit In Your Headlights)

Thanks for the help guys. Post edited.

Guiness Dreamer looks stunning like a Tarr film (except for the squirrels)!

Ididn't know that Cadbury Flake ad... Lavant is grand in this one (like Mr Merde). it's almost a shame that the devil hands out flakes in the end (selling out). It would have worked perfectly with just the catch phrase printed in the end.

I couldnt find that Last Orders video.

I think the implicit suggestion is that the only non-devillish way to enjoy a Flake is to crumble it on top of a Christmas trifle the way God intended, because otherwise it is far to indulgent to eat on its own (not to mention messy!)

I wonder why this ad should be banned... Maybe the Queen didn't approve.

The Last Orders add, reminds me of Once Upon a Time in America, where the boy waits at the door of the young "prostitute" with a cream pastry, and finally eats the cream because the temptation is too strong. Same with Denis Lavant and the beer, although in very different circumstances.

Hollywood: The Ad
The techniques and the cartoon-like moral vision of television advertising are exerting more and more influence over American moviemaking
The Atlantic (April 1990) :
Directors can no longer afford to scorn the sixty-second pitch: "There was a stigma in the past," Jerry Bernstein, the head of the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, observed in 1988. "The feeling was [that the ad] was not a great art form." That feeling is passé, if not extinct, now that Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese (Armani), Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc Godard, Francis Ford Coppola (Fuji), John Frankenheimer, John Badham, Tony Bill (Bud Light), John Schlesinger, David Lynch, Penny Marshall (Revlon), David Steinberg, Stephen Frears, and Errol Morris (7-Eleven), among others, are making ads. Cinematographers, too, have turned to advertising: Sven Nykvist, Nestor Almendros, Gordon Willis, Eric Saarinen, and Vilmos Zsigmond, among others. And filmmakers have even been doing celebrity turns in ads: Richard Donner for Amaretto di Saronno, George Lucas for Panasonic (in Japan), Bernardo Bertolucci for Pioneer, Spike Lee for the Gap, and for Nike (which he plugs throughout his movies) in a commercial that he also directed.

I've compiled all the links from this thread. That's a long list (but incomplete)! But I wonder whether to post it auteur by auteur or all at once...

Thanks for the full ad Cameron Swift. ;)

Intermission : Fake Ad (3'16", 1990) English and French
"Foundation Against Directors Who Don't Do Shit on Their Shoot" with James Cameron, Luc Besson and Sam Raimi
It's a send up of a real French ad for "Pétrole Hahn", in a TV show (Les Nuls, I believe)
