Wes Anderson, Brad Pitt make Japanese ad

The Japanese don’t always make the best ads, but they do always get the top celebrities for them. Here we have an ad for Softbank, a big Japanese mobile-phone carrier, that’s directed by Wes Anderson and stars Brad Pitt. Not a bad pairing, but the ad is a bit confusing, and nowhere near as entertaining as Anderson’s old American Express commercial. Via Kottke and others.
