This Theatre de la Bastille Commercial is Unusual Yet Memorable

The Theatre de la Bastille has launched a unique commercial encouraging movie theater audiences to attend the unusual live theater offered at the Bastille over more conventional holiday fair. The commercial starts as a fake movie trailer for a Holiday romance film. Midway through, the trailer gets interrupted and the fourth wall crumbles to pieces when a large naked man with a very long beard walks in. The characters -- and the audience -- watch baffled and confused as the naked man starts singing opera from a puppet on his crotch. The commercial ends with a message 'really unexpected shows.'

This bizarre, yet extremely funny commercial is a call to viewers in Paris movie theaters to stop watching run-of-the-mill Christmas movies and spark interest in the more unconventional entertainment, and it it is definitely memorable
