New Fincher Ad!

While he's waiting for his movie to be released Fincher has directed the latest ad for the upcoming XBox360 game Gears of War. Check it out below.



Now I love Fincher but anyone could have directed this ad. He has basically just given a song to a bunch of FMV cut out scenes from the game. Having said that Gary Jules' cover of the Tears for Fears song 'Mad World' gives the ad an artistic touch and makes it an ad that stands out compared to other cliched video games ads. Check out some parodies here.
EDIT - A BLOG POSTER HAS INFORMED US THAT FINCHER WAS ONLY A CREATIVE CONSULTANT FOR THIS - MAKES ALOT OF SENSE! NICE LITTLE PAY CHECK FOR THE FINCH MAN.
Now since we are all waiting for Zodiac to be released I'd like to get a glimpse of what the Zodiac gamers like to waste their time on. DS vs PSP? 360 vs PS3 vs Wii? Tell me who you think the superior system will be.

FYI that Fincher didn't direct the commercial, only consulted on the creative direction. The commercial was directed by the same person (I'm forgetting the name) who directed the sequences for the game itself.

Im glad to hear that he didnt direct that, because when I saw the ad on TV I was thinking to myself: "LAME!!!" BTW 360 kicks every other system out of the ballpark.
