This is, by far, the finest commercial ever made. Really—watch this (the whole thing) and tell me you don’t want to run out and buy a bag (or a dozen bags) of David Lynch Signature Cup Coffee RIGHT NOW. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker. You want it, right?
A few months ago, Daniel and I went to see a movie* at the IFC Center, and I noticed David Lynch’s coffee for sale at the concession stand, and even though it was in no way presented as a being a joke product, I was kind of baffled by its existence.
Well, no longer. It all makes perfect sense to me now. You know, in the same way that Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway make sense. As in, not at all. But it’s good anyway, and my life won’t be the same without it.
I love David Lynch. I also love coffee.
yesssss. i just saw this too. made my day.
amazing. i once worked with his daughter jennifer lynch on an FX commercial, and i gotta say i have never in my entire life seen one person consume so much espresso. must be in her genes. (on a side note: she borrowed my polaroid camera and never returned it, so i like to think she’s taken a few shots of her pop with it.). 🙂
Enjoying how he couched a real and quite straightforward product in blissful bafflement.
what a fucking weirdo.
I just finished all of Twin Peaks & now I’m in love with Lynch as an actor. Gordon Cole still cracks me up.
Love this. Made my day.
I really shouldn’t have watched this while stoned…
I haven’t had any coffee in a year and a half but this really makes me want to start drinking it again!
A year and a half! My god, Adam, you better start tripling-up!
haha. I did my senior film school paper on David Lynch. After much research, I still don’t 100% get him, but I think that’s why he is so fascinating. This knowledge just adds to it.
I thought this was hilarious, but whoo-boy, my husband got SO mad at me for forcing him to watch it!
My work here is done, then. 😉
You should change husband.
I would have loved it if he hadn’t tweaked her head so hard to the side. too much tension, would have preferred it to be a little more dumbed down, but then would that have been david lynch?
SO GOOD. I wonder if it comes with a severed Barbie arm inside each bag. Or maybe just some fingernails. Or a fish in the percolator.
Or an ear…
Seeing as I’m only three episodes into twin peaks right now, I laughed way too loud at the fish thing. I can’t wait until my lunch break where I can sneakily watch the video on my iphone. I’m guessing it’s work safe, but not wtf is she watching work safe.
It’s definitely work safe, I promise!!
Well, at least it is where I work. 😀
I have to say, this coffee is really really good. My ex (a weirdo for sure) ordered it for a while, and then they ran out of beans. I suppose they are back. If you are intrigued, I definitely advocate ordering. 🙂
I’m glad to hear that! It’s not horribly expensive and it’s fair trade, too, so I think I’m going to pick up a bag and see how it goes down. 🙂
This is remarkably similar to Joe Gibbon’s 1995 video, entitled “Barbie’s Audition”.
I get an error message when I try to download it!
Nope, this does not make me want to rush out and buy a cup, a bag, or any other measurement of David Lynch coffee.
Well, all the more for me, then! 🙂
Amazing, so strange, I love how the music in his works feels so strange as well. Anyone know where to find this tune btw?
I wonder if they ship this coffee to Brazil lol
Alda, much of the most DL uses is written either by himself alone or with a collaborator. I would guess that this particular piece is his own work. Check out his site for lots of music stuff!
Amazing. And, by the way, digging the blog.
thx for posting this. It is hilarious:) Love David Lynch, his website has some really cool music too.
Whoa Nelly- that’s way too intimate! I feel dirty…
Whoa! That just made my day. I also love David Lynch and coffee! Thanks for posting!
This commercial makes me want to buy some David Lynch coffee and I don’t even like to drink coffee at all 😉 Love the smell of freshly brewed coffee though!
Wow, that’s amazing. Just so wonderfully weird. I love how he’s holding the Barbie too… at any second I was expecting him to pull it’s head off! And I really like the fact that he didn’t and that there was a happy ending… he got Barbie a cup of coffee!
I love no wait adore David Lynch! Great video he,he
that was so good.
hadn’t seen any David Lynch for a while.
I was sort of on the edge of my seat at the end, expecting him to pour hot coffee in her face, or plunge her, head first, into a cup. The happy ending made it even more peculiar.
Yep, totally buying a bag.
I don’t want to run out and buy a bag (or a dozen bags).
And I AM a drinker of organic, fairly traded coffee.
I wish I knew what music is that!!
Angel, it’s Lynch’s own composition.
