The Five Best Wes Anderson Commercials

Page 2 of 3

5. Sony, "Made of Imagination"

2012

Titled "Made of Imagination," the commercial makes us want to hug our phones and put them carefully on the table so as not to disturb the tiny robots inside. The adorable stop-motion work features one boy's vision of how Sony's Xperia smartphone works. Anderson worked with animation studio Laika to make the eight-year-old's dream come to life.

4. Stella Artois

2010

A Wes Anderson/Roman Coppola mash up would have most cult film fans swooning and this beer commercial really does deliver on the 1960s French vibe and clean, symmetrical sets of Anderson's work. The 60-second spot, like the tagline at the end, is a thing of artistic beauty.
