i am SO peeing my pants right now

OH. MY. GOD.
"Palm Pictures presents the first three installations in an ongoing series highlighting the work of filmmakers who have helped re-define music videos and filmmaking over the last decade. Each volume features music videos, shorts and commercials hand-picked by the directors, exclusive audio and video commentaries from featured artists and collaborators, unreleased shorts and documentaries and much more. A 52-page companion book including photographs, storyboards, treatments, drawings and interviews comes with each specially packaged DVD."
All I can say is that I hope and pray that the IKEA Lamp commercial (it won the Grand Prix award in the "Film" category for the world's best TV and cinema ads in Cannes this year -- and, you can watch it online here!) is on the Spike DVD. Other than that, I'm speechless.

Click here to go to the Directors Label site. Trailers are available for each of these three titles. Here is a link to the Palm Pictures website with more comprehensive information. I also highly suggest checking out the Stick Figure Ninja presentation of "Weapon of Choice".

Right on! Is that stick figure video an expanded version of that commercial with Christopher Walken? I live in Europe now, so can't keep up with the US ad industry, but friends have told me that commercial is awesome.

Case...

The stick-figure flash presentation is actually a near-exact replica of the music video "Weapon of Choice", which does feature a hilarious Chris Walken (and was directed by Spike Jonze). You can actually watch the original live-action video if you go to MTV.com (at least the US version), and search for "Weapon of Choice".
