it's stupid.
actually, it's more than that.
it's exactly what it is. a promo whose only purpose is to showcase a young director (I guess). he wrote the thing, the directed it, he even thought he's the creative director.
it proves he can direct. also, as usually in such cases, it proves he can't create a working ad.
stick to directing, benton.

Very odd and dark. Actually a very disturbing parody. I like it.

When i watch it i feel awkward. Nice directing but something disturbs me when i watch it. I didn't like the slow sad-dark music. I like the idea of "being virgin" and the connection to a tandem bike. It could be funny. It's odd.

F*@k this is dark. Dead on to the original. I love the tandem joke, but then becomes kind of creepy, in a good way.

The copy on the website is pretty funny.
