David Bowie in L'Invitation Au Voyage

David Bowie, who’s been awfully busy lately, is the star of a new short film called L’Invitation Au Voyage, which doubles as an advertisement for Louis Vuitton. Romain Gavras, who’s made great music videos for Justice and for M.I.A., directed it. The American model Arizona Muse (no really, that’s her name) plays a lady who lands a hot air balloon in Venice and ends up at a fancy-dress party, where Bowie is playing the Next Day song “I’d Rather Be High” on a harpsichord. This is all tied in with a new Vuitton ad campaign, which also features Bowie. The movie’s only a minute long, and you can watch it below.

The Next Day and its deluxe expanded edition are out now on Columbia.

UPDATE: Here’s a longer director’s cut…

  1. “The movie’s only a minute long…”

    Louis Vuitton is really lowering the bar on cinema standards. It’s hardly a music video.

    Although I’d be down to see a whole video to “I’d Rather Be High” as it was one of my favorites off The Next Day.

  2. Was that Anne Hathaway in that video?

  3. shades of Labyrinth!
