9,580 Paper Dolls Sacrificed to Keep Converse Cool


Anomaly/NY worked with Santogold, Julian Casablancas and Pharrell Williams of NERD to produce My Drive Thru, a paper doll music video for Converse. It's effortlessly dope, more so because Pharrell is the coolest fucking celebrity in the entire world. Oh, and the other two are also pretty awesome.

This is part and parcel of Converse's "Connectivity" campaign, which rocked well from Day 1. Scoop My Drive Thru up free on the Converse website, which was revamped to reinforce the celebu-paper doll thing. (Also very cool.) Click "unfold" for screen takeover -- minimal laggage -- then download the track.

It's all CG. No paper was wasted in making the spot.

Music and celebrities all wrapped up into an easily accessible video: viral waiting to happen. Good thinking, Converse.

"Pharrell is the coolest fucking celebrity in the entire world."

Did someone confuse her MySpace comment for Pharrell's profile with her AdRants post today? The gushing isn't very becoming.
