Commercial Interruption

Todd Bieber used to make shitty local commercials in rural Pennsylvania. And he was great at it. Come hear the true stories, watch the final commercials, see the outtakes, and find out how these ridiculously horrible commercials got made.

Written and Performed by Todd Bieber
Directed by Nate Dern

"Bieber's sarcasm and the outlandish stories behind the 60 failedattempts to treat "commercials as mini art films" were hilariouslycomplemented by the videos. With wisecrack introductions, Bieber ledthe audience in and out of the shameless, bizarre world of advertising."
