For those who think some fashion ads are just too pretentious, your fantasy best friend Lizzy Caplan has got you (fashionably) covered.
Caplan stars in a new ad that perfectly parodies the high-fashion world and the commercials that accompany it. “Sometimes I think to myself in French, and listen to old records from the ’60s. They are way better than stuff from today,” Caplan says in a voiceover as she frolics in the grass, poses in hazy lighting and reads vintage paperbacks while she thinks about starting a band. “I like to collect things. I’m good at it.”
Caplan’s publicist tells EW that the ad is for a real fashion company, Viva Vena!, which is mentioned at the end of the commercial, but that the two-minute ad is spoofing “Fashion Films” in general. Check out the semi-NSFW video below:
