Watch Wes Anderson’s Sony Commercial Featuring Adorable Robots

Wes Anderson Sony Ad

These days, ‘Rushmore’ helmer Wes Anderson is as much of a commercial director as he is one for feature films. The latest in the increasing list of products the auteur has made a spot for is Sony’s Xperia’s smartphone. And Anderson’s latest ad just might be his cutest yet.

When the ad starts, eight-year old Jack Ryan is asked how the Xperia works. According to Jack, the smartphone is powered by three tiny little robots. As the ad progresses, stop motion animation — much like Anderson used in ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ — illustrates Jack’s vision of how a smartphone works.
