I feel bad that I missed this during the game - but how awesome is this Burger King ad from the Super Bowl?
If you aren't familiar - that's Andy Warhol . Certainly one the best known (if not best) artists of the 20th century
Here's how that happened:
The footage was shot in 1982 by Danish documentarian Jørgen Leth for his film66 Scenes From America, an experimental collage made up of postcard-like vignettes of American life, from a bartender making drinks at Sardi’s to, well, Andy Warhol eating a Burger King burger.
I guess they decided to go with this - because they loved it - it spoke to them
One of the things that was unique about the negotiation was that we didn’t want to change or touch the film in any way that would take away from its original intent. We knew that the best thing we could do would be to keep the film as intact as we could. … We want people to have that experience as well because it’s truly something to watch from beginning to end with that uncomfortable silence, to see the full film.
