Watch: David Lynch's Coffee Commercial, Plus: More Ads for Other Celebrity-Owned Businesses

Watch: David Lynch's Coffee Commercial, Plus: More Ads for Other Celebrity-Owned Businesses

May 01, 2015

It's been almost a decade since the last David Lynch movie came out, and currently it doesn't look like he'll be working on the TV reboot of Twin Peaks. What's a fan to do? Well, for the past few years we've been able to drink the man's coffee, at least. Lynch started his own brand of beans a few years ago under the name David Lynch Signature Cup Organic Coffee, and it's got a cool new commercial that's fitting for the week that Avengers: Age of Ultron is hitting theaters (and while Ex Machina continues its run on the big screen). The spot, directed by Andrew Parkhurst involves a sort of Turin test to determine whether David Lynch's coffee is suitable for robots. Watch it here:

 

If you're disappointed that the ad doesn't feature Lynch or that it's not quite weird enoug, check out this 2011 ad for the coffee starring the voice of the filmmaker and a Barbie doll head:

 

Many other Hollywood celebrities own or co-own their own side businesses, from food and drink brands to golf resorts to products aimed at saving the world. And a number of those entrepreneurial famous people make commercials for their companies and/or products. Here are some of these ads, a few of which seem like they're totally fake:


Paul Newman - Newman's Own (via Burger King)

 

Steven Seagal - Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt Energy Drink

 

Jessica Alba - The Honest Company (featuring voiceover by Alba)

 

Dan Aykroyd - Crystal Skull Vodka

 

Clint Eastwood - Tehama Golf Club

 

Kevin Smith - Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash

 

Kevin Costner - Blue Planet Water Solutions (industrial promo)

 

Kate Hudson - Fabletics
