Art imitates advertising

DreamWorks is spinning out the Puss In Boots character from Shrek into his own film. Part of the launch programme involves takes on famous US advertisements which they seeded to the YouTube video services (sorry for the embeds, I realise that not everyone can see them).

Dos Equis ‘most interesting man in the world’ series of adverts.

A case of art imitating advertising, not that it does Dos Equis or Old Spice any harm.
