Look, it’s not every day that your filmmaking idol brings out his own line of gourmet coffee, so we can understand the impulse that propelled Vulture Picture Palace alum Branan Edgens (whose hilarious short Shiny Shit we featured almost a year ago) to try and attempt to make a commercial for David Lynch Signature Cup. That’s how Edgens ended up with The Darkest Coffee, which functions less as a commercial and more as a four-minute creepfest about the experience of consuming said hot beverage. It’s a perfect homage to the maestro, as well as a nice little teaser for Halloween next week. Be sure to turn the volume up loud when you watch it.
Oh, and you can buy David Lynch Signature Cup here.
