I came across these two videos of screenwriter/director David Lynch just last weekend and I was reminded at how much of a character he is. Everything about him is comical: his pompadour, his slow and deliberate speech, his slight tremors, and his gentle manner. Then throw in his works on film/TV – such as Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, and Muholland Drive -and there you have David Lynch. A grandfather figure-type who makes movies that usually involve weird sex.

This one I believe was simply video of him discussing cell phones and someone added the iPhone music and graphics.

And just for kicks, here is a scene from Blue Velvet:

  2. Don’t get me wrong, I love David Lynch but if he doesn’t like product placement, how do you explain the scene in ‘Blue Velvet’ where Jeffrey is praising Heinekken beer?

  3. Maxieg18, while you do bring up an interesting point, I don’t think that is product placement. I see product placement as when a product is mentioned/seen on screen unnecessarily. Example a bus is driving by on screen and there is a ad for Burger King. Another would be if a character grabs a drink from the fridge and it’s can of Pepsi and the label is obviously shown, yet there is no mention of it, nor is it in anyway important to the story.

    I see the PBR/Heineken scene as A) Lynch adding a little humor and B) perhaps showing the difference between Jeffery (as he would be expected to drink a somewhat hip beer as Heineken) and Frank (would drink PBR, which at that time was simply a cheap, blue collar beer).

    But how knows, it is Lynch after all.
