David Lynch talks baby talk in a new commercial for his organic coffee line

David Lynch coffee

I'll admit it, I didn't know that David Lynch had a signature coffee line. And I consider myself something of an expert on aging directors and their adventures into the beverage industry; I've been drinking nothing but Coppola Malbecs for years. 

The new ad spot has two actors: Lynch's hand, shot in close-up, and a Barbie doll head that he excitedly squeezes and talks to in baby talk. It's one of the creepier coffee ads I've seen recently, not less so for the children's carnival music, although not nearly the creepiest commercial Lynch has ever made.

But still, worth watching. If you make it through those first two minutes, you'll even get some romantic tips. (Hint: your coffee better be fairly-traded and organic.)
