Soap and Scissors


Don’t know why the video’s anamorphically squished like that, a fellow called palecalo put this up on YouTube, not me. You can partially unsquish it by watching it from almost directly above the screen, but when I tried that I banged my head on the monitor, so DON’T.

Anyhow, this is the soap commercial in which Jean-Luc Godard first spotted Anna Karina. And she IS cute as a kitten, although a kitten probably wouldn’t look as cute in that bath, retching and spitting and bedraggled and pathetically trying to climb the sides of the tub.

Film history, folks!

  4. That soap commercial had some very nice stalker elements to it. So what were you actually searching for when you came across this video?

  5. I can’t remember, but I THINK I was just looking for Godard…
