WATCH: Oscar-nominated director's toilet paper commercials will make you laugh. And paranoid.
What do you get when the twice-Academy-Award-nominated director of "Capote" and "Moneyball" makes toilet paper commercials?
These creative spots for Quilted Northern toilet paper were directed by Bennett Miller, and his approach peers through the unblinking eyes of inanimate objects commonly found in bathrooms everywhere. What do they see? Everything.
See the rest of the spots here.
What I love most about these is the truthful tagline: "Designed to be forgotten." In a way, sewers and infrastructure are seen that same way, as investments that are rarely considered until they are unavailable or dysfunctional.
Here's to the oft forgotten sewers that lay well below our bathroom floors. Thanks to @MySAWS for the story.
