Rocks Off got this video in a press release just minutes ago, Rob Zombie's debut as director of Woolite commercials. Yes, Woolite. The detergent. The thing you use to make your clothes not stank and to look whiter. And we approve of the direction that the '90s shock-maven and '00s filmmaker is taking the art of detergent commercials.
Titled "Torturer," it has Zombie's standard visual stamp on it. The jump cuts, the washed-out color, the spooky lumbering creature. The...pink tank tops. We're Tide men ourselves, Purex when it's on sale, but we may pick up a bottle of Woolite next time we are out shopping for domestic things.
Now if only we had lighter colored clothes that needed to be whitened. Black shirts and pearl snaps sorta take care of themselves.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
