Borders Rocket

Your authenticity skewered: Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman do a commercial for Borders on YouTube. [via]


It's so weird. Not only does it not make sense - it's boring - unedited - and so unlike both. Terrible stuff.

I'm not sure I get how this is a commercial for Borders. I guess the point is "look at all the stuff we have," but isn't someone watching it on YT just going to click over to Amazon?

yeah, i don't get it either. Schwartzman promotes his record I guess.

It's a promo stop from back in March for Darjeeling Limited.

"Hey guys, on your way to the next Darjeeling interview can you stop by Borders for 15 minutes and just riff on books and movies you like?"

Boring, but maybe better than the usual canned interviews.
