J. Tillman AKA Father John Misty channeled his inner Sammy Davis Jr. to create perhaps the strangest whiskey commercial you’ll ever watch. This isn’t Sutory’s first foray with US celebrities, but it’s certainly the weirdest.
If you made it all the way to the end of the video, I salute you. Like modern art, I don’t know if it’s over my head or just plain stupid. I’m going to assume it’s a bit of both. Obviously it was entertaining enough for me to watch and share, but I’m not exactly sure why. One thing I can say with confidence though, I don’t support the wasting of booze. Oh, and those ice cubes are fake.
I mentioned this isn’t Sutory’s first celebrity rodeo. They’ve had Sammy Davis Jr., Francis Ford Coppola, Sean Connery, Duran Duran, and even The One himself, Keanu Reeves. Those ads, specifically one of Coppola’s, was the inspiration for Lost in Translation. Billy fuckin’ Murray.
