Oscars 2012: Wes Anderson premieres two new Hyundai ads

Posted on

Super BabiesIf you watched last night’s Academy Awards, you might have seen two new Hyundai spots directed by Royal Tenenbaums helmer Wes Anderson. If not, we’ve got you covered. “Modern Life” displays the director’s signature ’70s nostalgic set dressing, while “Talk To My Car” has echoes of Anderson’s 2004 feature The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (but alas, no Bill Murray). Jeff Bridges, a 2010 Oscar winner, does provide voiceover, though. Check out both ads below.
