And now a word from...our pants.

This is a new commercia for Levis jeans, shot by Australian director John Hillcoat (The Road) in the economically destitute city of Braddock, PA. Since The Road was shot in and around Braddock, it's likely that Mr. Hillcoat shot the commercial while working on the film.

The music of course is the "underwater" prelude to Scene I of Wagner's Das Rheingold.

Thanks to William Berger for the heads-up on this.
