If David Weisner and Terry Gilliam made a commercial…

The other day after reading a bunch of Weisner books at the library I thought about trying to come up with a BIG Weisner Style Idea — like a Cloud Control Station in the Sky, for example.
Since Weisner has so many flying things, I thought of going underground. But that’s as far as I got.
Then I saw this incredible commercial on TV which beat me to it. It’s about a man with enormous legs.

 It is the best thing I’ve seen on American TV in a long, long time.
Had it been a children’s book instead of a commercial — with the art director’s drawings as illustrations — I would probably be arguing for it to win the Caldecott. It is that good.
