In Reply to: OT- A GAP COMMERCIAL I LIKED!! posted by kingofthebritons on May 03, 2002 at 10:18:42:

: because i usually loathe Gap commercials i was flabbergasted to see the one with Dennis Hopper playing chess with a Beach Boys instrumental from "Pet Sounds" no less for the music. screen icon (or screen psycho) + obscure music = strangely satisfying commerical. i'm still not shopping in their store but i'll give em credit where credit is due.

Two things:
1) Christina Ricci is the girl
2) "Pet Sounds" isn't that obscure an album; almost every person I know in school owns it, and everybody knows it.

There are at least two other Gap commercials, one directed by Roman Coppola with 'Dude' from 'Dude, Where's My Car?" (or was he 'my'?) and Scarlett Johansen, and there's one by Cameron Crowe which is really good and has just a crowd (nobody I recognized) and, I believe, a Who song, and is a good commercial too. I believe there's one more, but I don't know for sure.
