10 Film Directors Who Have Directed Commercials

Hollywood Directors Commercials

'The Wolverine' director James Mangold isn't the only film director to shill for advertisers

David Fincher – Nike
The “Fight Club” director loves a good twist ending, which is what he made sure to provide for this commercial for Nike’s Pro Combat campaign featuring Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. This wasn’t Fincher’s first spot with Nike- he directed one the year before called “Fate.” Fincher’s in pre-production on “Gone Girl.”

Spike Jonze – Adidas
Before directing “Where the Wild Things Are,” Jonze worked with Adidas to create a dreamlike commercial in 2005, where a man goes on a somewhat trippy adventure with the help of Adidas sneakers. The soundtrack is “Hello Tomorrow” by then-girlfriend Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Jonze is currently in post-production for sci-fi rom-com “Her.”
