Guess Who Directed That Super Bowl Commercial About Tibet?

Still a little confused by Groupon's tonally questionable Tibet ads from last night's Super Bowl, which offered up so many elements you wouldn't normally expect to see during a football game (like Timothy Hutton, social consciousness, and food other than buffalo wings)? Here's something that will make you even more conflicted: The campaign was directed by your favorite mockumentary auteur, Christopher Guest (Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman). So maybe we'll all be quoting it and posting it on our Facebook walls in ten years? [HR]
