In the adverts just before Star Wars Episode III, there was an advert for Stella Artois, accompanied by an unmistakable Clara Rockmore recording on the theremin accompanying it. The advert was done in a B/W surrealist style with French subtitles- "Reassuringlty Elephants" was the tagline.

I couldn't name the piece off the top of my head, but it was clearly Mrs. Rockmore.

Stella Artois launched two new adverts in the UK as part of a £40m marketing spend by Interbrew. The first advert, Ice Skating Priests, is for TV and the second, Bench, will be aired initially in “arthouse” cinemas from mid-May.

It's shot in black and white in the style of the surrealist films of the early 20th Century, and is a slant on the classic films of artists such as Salvador Dali, which portrays a series of increasingly bizarre events.

It is Tchaikovsky's 'Valse Sentimentale'.
