While he's best known for his documentary work, Errol Morris has long been a commercials director too, cranking out spots for major brands like Apple, Adidas, Nike, Toyota, Volkswagen and many, many more. And the results are always the most satisfying when he brings his own, distinct interview and observational style to the small screen.

And so it goes with this string of ads for Taco Bell, which have a unique twist.

It's cheeky stuff, and Morris makes it look easy. Check it out below. [Adweek]
