If there is one thing people love, it is taking two disparate things and making those things FIGHT. Aliens vs. cowboys. Gorillas vs. bears. Shirts vs. skins. Well, today we have a new match up. In one corner, it’s an advertisement for Stella Artois beer co-directed by Roman Coppolla and Wes Anderson. In the other corner, it’s a music video for Kid Cudi’s song featuring Kanye West, “Erase Me,” starring Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Clark Duke. “But Gabe, this competition doesn’t even make sense. Sure, both videos ostensibly have a certain “cool” factor, but one is a foreign-markets beer advertisement, and the other is a music video. It’s not even clear how one would determine the winner of a match up like that, and if one was able to determine a winner, what would even be the point?”

SHUT UP AND TAKE SIDES!

FIGHT!

T.K.O! Right? T.K.O.!!!!! (Commercial via /Film. Kudi via Fader.
