Made From Cool



In this series of commercials for the retail clothing company Jack & Jones, Christopher Walken demonstrates how a really cool tailor, knitter and sheep shearer makes suits and sweaters. Warning: attempts to replicate Walken's methods at home will result in wasted time and materials and a very exasperated sheep.

Edited to add: Alas, only the knitting Jack & Jones commercial is still available on YouTube. Can't say I understand why anyone would crack down on this particular copyright infringement. It's a commercial — the whole point of a commercial is to get everyone to see it for free.

  1. Those are fantastic. The knitting one was impressive - he varied his movements just enough to make me wonder if he actually knows how to knit (or has hung out with knitters).

  2. Wish I could fold shirts like that.

  3. There's a tutorial for shirt folding on youtube. Takes 2 seconds to fold. I'm still trying to get it right.

  4. I'm with Rachael - he really got the movements down, was he really knitting?! I wouldn't put it past CW to have got it right ;) :o
