Gandhi X Lee

JAPANESE commercials made for Canon in the seventies were pretty experimental. The stills on this page are part of a commercial shot by art director Jiro Takasugi. The scenario is simple. The main character walks on a beach, finds a washed up teddy bear and kicks it. In the last frames he falls a la Bas Jan Ader. But this is not the reason why I post these images. It’s because the still with the model with the wire rim glasses. It’s like Mahatma Gandhi and Spike Lee had a baby. Images are from this book.
