What I’ve Got: Bennett Miller’s Quilted Northern Toilet Paper Advertisments

by post_author

Following two Best Director Oscar nominations for Capote and Foxcatcher, auteur Bennett Miller teamed with commercial ad agency Droga5 and Quilted Northern Toilet Paper to craft a series of darkly comedic :15 second advertisements.

Often deemed too “serious” by his detractors, Miller pokes fun at himself while intelligently subverting the expectations of what a toilet paper commercial can indeed hold by personifying inanimate objects (from “Little Miss Puffytail” to “Daddy Gator”). The result is a highly sophomoric affair, though one that is very memorable indeed, thanks to an ingenious tagline (”designed to be forgotten…”).
