Garden State

Huh. Dan Drezner is right. This trailer for Zach Braff's film Garden State is addictive and hypnotic. It's as much a music video as it is a movie trailer.

Dan watched it over and over again. I didn't think I would even after I watched it myself. But I do find I'm drawn back to it. The actual movie had better deserve that trailer...

PS - For those who don't think Dan and I are whacked, here's another trailer for the same movie. This one is less cool and hip and hypnotic, but it's also more of a normal trailer and has some actual dialogue in it.
