Will you like David Lynch's Procter & Gamble commercial better than Drew Barrymore's Procter & Gamble commercial?

From Defamer: "David Lynch makes no secret of how he feels about the encroachment of corporate interests upon his stubbornly abstruse cinematic meditations....That isn't to say that he's above whoring himself out for the occasional contract work, however, as he has agreed to direct a TV spot for a new Gucci perfume."

The confusing part? P&G owns Gucci Fragrance. They also own CoverGirl. CoverGirl recently named Drew Barrymore as their celebrity endorser and she'll direct her own spots. Barrymore has also just been chosen as the model for a line of jewelry. By Gucci. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Yes! The next Gucci menswear model is all too obvious!

No matter who's starring in the spot, with Lynch directing that's gonna be one strange commercial.

Defamer's commenters hilariously nailed it. My favorite: "Toss in a clown with a death mask, a little girl in an eye-patch, and a parrot who speaks like Lurch, and you've probably got it."
