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]
