Fred Durst Directed This eHarmony Commercial
Limp Bizkit still exists, but frontman Fred Durst has maintained a healthy side hustle as a film director for years now. He’s helmed major motion pictures such as the Ice-Cube-starring family comedy The Longshots. He’s done short films such as his recent religious mockumentary The Truth. And now it seems he does commercials too. What’s crazy about this eHarmony spot Durst directed is how completely straightlaced and un-Biskit-like it is. Never would I have expected something so cutesy and G-rated from the guy who once took part in the sarcastically titled Family Values Tour, but there it is: A kindly old man and two young children joking around about online dating in the most innocent of fashions. “It was a really amazing experience,” Durst told Ad Age. “The chemistry was perfect right off the bat.” Watch it below.
The 8 p.m. bedtime punchline really got me, how about you guys?
