David Lynch's 'Twin Peaks' Lives On In Gucci Commercial

So auteur David Lynch has gone from Eraserhead to Blue Velvet to Twin Peaks to...a Gucci commercial? One could argue it's a sad state of affairs when all a down on his luck (misunderstood?) filmmaker has left is filming commercials. Or one could argue it's a step up since it seems every Hollywood director is doing it these days.

While we not sure about the soundtrack in this Gucci commercial - Blondie's Heart of Glass - visually, it's all David Lynch. It's like a scene out of Twin Peaks with supermodels dancing instead of that freaky little guy. In fact, if you replaced the Blondie tune with the Twin Peaks theme, it would be Twin Peaks. Don't get us wrong. We love Lynch. Though, we wish he'd hurry up and give us another Mulholland Drive or a Lost Highway we could actually understand.

Lynch is hardly down on his luck. He's been filming the occasional commercial for years. He did a bizarre Alka-Seltzer spot for a friend back in the 90s. Check the facts before posting, eh?

And the "Obsession" commercials in the 80s. Not a "downturn" at all, this. (Have you seen Inland Empire?)
