Softbank (One of Japan’s biggest cellphone companies) have collaborated with Hollywood A-list celebrities as part of Softbank’s branding commercials. I thought Softbank’s commercials with Hollywood and Japanese Celebrities are a great collaboration of ‘East meets West.’

In 2008, Wes Anderson teamed up with Brad Pitt for a commercial for Japanese cell phones. The commercial takes inspiration from Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot. Anderson filmed Pitt in one continuous shot at a French seaside town.
