Terrible. As if they used the first take of every shot and there was no rehearsal.

The entire concept was terrible. Surely there are more subtle ways to make a statement about luxury consumerism other than having two actresses slam each other's faces into the floor.

Yeah. They could have had them rip each others clothes off, for example.

That's California, right? That's from the early 90s. It's a great song/video; really complimenting each other, and of course, Mylene doesn't look so bad.

Luc Besson directed a video for Que Mon Couer Lache, which is quite witty for a song about having sex without protection.

I love and hate this thing. The first time I saw it I was orgasmic, but then I felt cheap and used when I realized it was just a Levi's ad.

It's one thing to pay homage to Malick's influence, but this feels closer to a xerox to me, right down to recycling Wagner's Das Rheingold. Thumbs down.

I dunno. I'm of the opinion that even fake Malick is good Malick. Even though there's nothing about this ad that's original, it's really well done.
