Satirizing Satan. A Wickedly Good Ad for Dirt Devil Parodies The Exorcist.
above: the commercial mimics some memorable scenes from the original movie, such as the opening shot (above) and the Exorcist movie poster and scene (below)
Directed by Andreas Roth, this :90 second commercial for the Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner is a beautifully executed take on William Peter Blatty's, The Exorcist. Starting with the opening frame, a nod to the very famous scene used for the movie's poster (shown above), the spot does a brilliant job of echoing the horror film, only to reveal a comical and unexpected ending.
