John Wiese and Zen Sekizawa
Commercial for LD Tuttle, a boutique line of women’s products

Now this is deliciously weird and unexpected: Noise hero John Wiese has teamed up with artist Zen Sekizawa to direct a commercial for LD Tuttle, “a boutique line of women’s designer accessories and shoes, trend shattering women’s handbags, belts, accessories and shoes.” Expect an accelerating gas pedal, popped balloons, shattered glass, and a provocative bedroom scene.

Meanwhile, no word yet on a new full-length Wiese album (his last two featured collaborations with Kevin Drumm and Gerritt), but we’ll keep you updated.
