Having already directed the Halloween remake, House of 1,000 Corpses, and The Devil’s Rejects, Rob Zombie now turns his cinematic talents toward a new, uncharted medium: television commercials. Check out his ad for Woolite detergent, in which a gang of leather-hooded freaks goes medieval on some laundry to show how other brands of detergent “torture” your clothes. Warning: the video contains graphic depictions of clothes being stretched, shrunk, and—GASP—faded. The horror!
