3 Big Hollywood Directors Making Commercials

It's no secret in Hollywood, but most people don't know outside the industry, that big directors will make some extra cash by directing commercials. And we are talking millions of dollars for one 30 second spot. Jared Cotter has three of the most surprising ones going from big screen blockbusters to small screen advertisements.

1.  Baz Luhrmann

He’s known for his beautiful imagery in films like Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby. He teamed up with H&M and designer Erdem to promote their new floral fashion line, in this stylized sexy spot.

2.  Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg

The funny men teamed up for the animated antics of 2016s Sausage Party. Earlier this year Walmart commissioned the pair to do a TV spot that aired during the Oscars.

3.  Bennett Miller

His 2015 film Foxcatcher cleaned up at the Oscars, then he directed several irreverent commercials about another kind of cleaning up, with toilet paper.
