The Softer Side of Michael Bay

CREDIT:

This LA Times series of photos with captions purports to illustrate “the romances of Michael Bay” beyond the frenetic action for which he’s best known. But they leave out what I think you would have to call his greatest romance, this brief 1990s-vintage ad for Levis Jeans:

Bay’s Aaron Burr “Got Milk” is also a great commercial. Longtime readers know that I’m a Michael Bay apologist, but there’s no doubt that his finest work occurred outside the confines of feature filmmaking.
