Advertising! While 90% they are nothing more than dudes in various elaborately named firms trying to sell you bigger Big Mac or Chevy truck with more pulling power, 10% they actually get creative and try something a little different. Or at least hire someone interesting to do their bidding. And so we've rounded up a few recent campaigns with some big names behind them.

Advertising! While 90% they are nothing more than dudes in various elaborately named firms trying to sell you bigger Big Mac or Chevy truck with more pulling power, 10% they actually get creative and try something a little different. Or at least hire someone interesting to do their bidding. And so we've rounded up a few recent campaigns with some big names behind them.

Christian Louboutin has dropped the "experimental film" directed by David Lynch for their Rouge Louboutin nail varnish. And it looks like a CGI laced acid dream that takes you to a future world where nail polish bottles are kind of like space ships or something. Actually, it's a computer generated city the designer has dubbed “Loubiville.” The surreal promo is below and fyi, Lynch has launched a line of women's sportswear because, obviously.

Michel Gondry has helmed a spot for Guerlain for their L'Homme Idéal perfurme. It's beautiful people doing beautiful things — it's a perfume ad — but with some Gondry-esque touches in there too.

Lastly, "300: Rise Of An Empire" director Noam Murro returns to his commercial directing roots for this heartstring-tugging spot for Guinness. Watch them all below. [Film Divider/The Inspiration Room]
