“They went to me and said, ‘It’s a commercial, but you can write something.’ And I had something I wanted to do, and I could put my friends in it. Sometimes it’s fun to do a commercial. But I consider it to have no connection to my personal work.” —Wes Anderson on his American Express commercial [A.V. Club]
