Expedia do Wes Anderson

Expedia (Australia) have an ad. entitled Out There Starts Here. Rather than aqua blue seas, azure skies, white sandy beaches and palm trees, they tap into the enthusiasm and adventure of our youth by taking us along on a  young boys seemingly ad-hoc travels through a jumble of locations. Borrowing heavily from the films of Wes Anderson in both style (lots of centralised compositions, just not quite as yellow) and content, the bespectacled protagonist is more than reminiscent of Sam, from Moonrise Kingdom.

I like the idea of a world in which Wes Anderson is imitated more…but not too much more, hopefully.
