Happy 39th birthday, Spike Jonze! Is it really gonna be another whole year before we finally get a chance to see your vision of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are? Oh well. In the meantime, we’ll just have to make do with another viewing of this commercial — commissioned (and ultimately rejected) by the Gap. And this swell spot you did for Ikea.
