Fincher's latest

While we all wait patiently for David Fincher's next feature length project (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, coming this December), we have a new project from Finch to help pass the time. It's a new commercial for Nike titled "Fate" starring San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers superstars LaDanian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu. It premiered this weekend during the football games and features "Ecstasy of Gold," the Ennio Morricone music from THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. The ad serves as a nice companion piece to Michael Mann's similar ad from last year's football season. They're both impressive pieces of art and I recommend you check em both out. Wish we could have less Viagra commercials and more of these...

And you JohnLocke2342 are what the Dutch call a "mierenneuker".
Honestly who gives a shit if #88 is sucking grass while he should be chewing sole. These ads are made to be watched and enjoyed not to be nitpicked.

Manns was technically and overall better in my opinion. But after rewatching Fincher's I also liked it quite a bit.

oh come on

please ayestrain.. you're one of those annoying kids aren't you? Who finds something negative in things that are gunning for being creative and positive. He's taking his time to turn an AD into art, and that commercial was gorgeous. Much like last year's. Everything about sports is incredible, as is the drama and the story telling of the games and players. I like the way it's attracted big name directors to do great things with them.

I also think it's bad ass that they're now including

I also think it's bad ass that they're now including the entire team and other players to make it more realistic. The most annoying thing is seeing a football commercial and then seeing #18 on the colts being a WR in the background (like at the end of Michael Mann's, when #4 on the steelers is somehow on the defense.. which is impossible). It bothers me. Gates picked LT off the ground and quentin jammer was on the sidelines.. I think that's fucking awesome.

I'm sure it's a GREAT payday, but why do A-grade directors like Fincher bother to direct commercials for the likes of Nike? Is it just a matter of keeping the chops up?

Wow..I had no idea that commercial from last year was done by Mann. That's one of the greatest commercials ever. Fincher's cool too.

Not bad

LaDanian Tomlinson plays for San Diego, not Pittsburgh.
