David Lynch Coffee shows that less can be more (without Barbie)

Film director David Lynch’s last effort for his eponymous coffee enlisted the aid of valuable Mattel property Barbie and the ad was promptly pulled.

For his next effort Twin Peaks director Dave has eschewed such controversy but still produced a characteristically moody (and better) spot.

Pity his budget doesn’t run to the $3.5m required for a Super Bowl berth. It’s an object lesson in a little going a long way.
