In 1993, David Lynch directed a series of Japanese coffee spots that piggybacked on the success of 1992's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me in Asia. The commercials featured Kyle MacLachlan and company solving mysteries and pounding canned bean juice.
Agent Cooper's not the only one stuck in the Black Lodge. From LynchNet:
These commercials were done for the Japanese canned coffee, Georgia. The series was set in Twin Peaks and featured many of the cast from the series. In the ads, a Japanese man searches for his missing wife. Each commercial added more clues to the mystery, until the final one where Cooper rescues her from the Black Lodge. Originally a second series of four were planned, but the Coffee company, unhappy with the first series, canceled them.
Just like Twin Peaks! Here they are, directed by David Lynch himself. (The first one, "Lost," is above).
#2. Cherry Pie
#3. The Mystery of "G"
…By now Coop and the gang are so jittery, you'll have to excuse the tracking on this next one:
#4. The Rescue
Other Lynch commercials are available at LynchNet-even his Playstation commercials. (Although, oddly, they're missing the second of these Georgia ads.)
And…a bit more about Georgia.
