Tubin' Dali

There is a wealth of material out there regarding Salvador Dali (full name Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí Domènech, Marquis of Pubol). Thanks to YouTube I am able to bring you some of the more surreal stuff about the Surrealist. Here is a commercial featuring the man himself for a chocolate bar in France.

In the 1940s Walt Disney and Dali worked on an animated film that was not completed until 2003, Destino. Here is a trailer for the film. There are many snipets regarding this film available and I for one would like to see the whole thing.

And finally this bit of surrealism (whether intentional or not) was found by our director Shirley Serotsky and posted on her blog CityMouse yesterday. I think if Grady can acheive the same artistry in our trailer for References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot, we will be beating people back at the door with a very big stick. Enjoy!

i have no idea where one could find Destino now, but it was released as a "special animated short" in theaters with The Triplets of Belleville.

it was really neat-o, but i think the producers were twirling their mustaches and saying "ahHA! here is how we can really screw with those americans!". a few people walked out at the end thinking they had just seen the triplets of belleville.

funny, as there are no triplets.

this segment brought to you by the letter "Y" and the number "3".
