What commercial was this?
January 15, 2013 9:21 PM   Subscribe

this is driving me crazy. at least ten years ago, i remember a commercial for jeans. levis, lee, wrangler, i looked for them all on youtube, to no avail. it's about some white dude, t-shirt, jeans, picking up some african-american woman for a date at her family's home. it makes a big deal about how he's white and he's definitely seen by the neighboring dudes as an interloper. can anyone remember this and/or provide a link? thanks.

super long shot...is it this levi's commercial? the guy is not picking up a black girl for a date, but some of the elements are there. the guy buys condoms at the drug store directly from his date's dad (unbeknownst to him).

Did you try searching for Diesel? Here's an old ad with an interracial couple, although the plot is not correct.

Could it be a movie? Something New?

Sounds a lot like the video for Alicia Keys' song, Un-thinkable (I'm Ready).

He's not in jeans but it sounds a bit like this Southern Comfort ad.

Bingo, KateViolet!!! How I remembered it as a Levis ad I'll never know. 1987, jeez, 26 years...
Alice Ayres, the levi's ad is fantastic. i'm checking into
more of gondry's work.
Everyone else, thanks a ton!
