A commercial for Japanese company Softbank Mobile, starring Brad Pitt and directed by Wes Anderson (RUSHMORE).

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Reminds me of the Monsieur Hulot character, but the commercial is too short to be much of anything.

Brad Pitt's really getting a lot of use out of that silly little mustache.
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

It's so short! But it makes it more Japanese I suppose... even with that little blurb in the end and the dog chain.

Everybody's getting mileage out of our mustaches.  "Ladies and gentlemen, I've traveled over half our state to be here tonight...."
