Some sort of weird meta thing going on with this video. I’ve long thought we’d hear VW’s music in an upcoming Wes Anderson movie, but it seems that VW sort of flipped things around. They’ve essentially made a Wes Anderson video for their song.
The setting, the attire, the single tracking shot, and – most tellingly – the use of Futura Bold (definitely Anderson’s signature font, in the same way Windsor is Woody Allen’s font) in the chapter titles (not to mention the…uh…chapter titles) all scream Wes Anderson.
Don’t get me wrong, I am 1000% fine with all of this. Makes good sense.
