To promote his new David Lynch Signature Cup Organic Coffee, the film auteur made this insane or absolutely brilliant video of a conversation he has with a Barbie doll about the coffee. The video consists of a relentless four minute close-up of Barbie’s head firmly clenched in Lynch’s hand as he provides all the dialogue, making very little attempt to distinguish between his gravelly voice and Barbie’s.
Barbie: Is it fairly traded?
David: Yeah. Fairly traded.
Barbie: Oh. Jeez. Can I have some?
David: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m gonna fix you a cup.
Barbie: Really? Really? You’re gonna get me a cup of coffee?
David: Yeah, I’m gonna get you a cup of coffee.
Barbie: …So great. Jeez, Dave, thanks. Thanks. It’s really beautiful. I just feel dreamy thinking about it.
David: Let’s go get that cup of coffee, baby.
