This Time-Travel Short Starring Robert Downey Jr. Is the Best Car Commercial Ever

Jan 31, 2013

 

We thought you should know that English filmmaker Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, High Fidelity, Dirty Pretty Things) created a promotional short film for Volvo starring Robert Downey Jr. The Route V50 is like a wacky Twilight Zone episode that finds the Iron Man actor running into himself over and over again at different points in the time-travel tale. What's better than RDJ acting like a loon and mugging for the camera?

Nothing — except three RDJs, and that's exactly what we get in the cryptic little short. Sure, it's a TV commercial, but it's the most engaging advertisement you'll probably watch today. We'd buy more stuff if the Weird Science star were selling it to us — he's totally RDJceptioning us with his eyes. The video is a few years old, but it's worth another watch, so have it — and start ticking off the 92 days until we get to see Iron Man 3. [via JoBlo]
