TRUST Trivia: David Fincher

Before becoming the huge Hollywood-level director that we know him as today, David Fincher got his start directing a strange, macabre but ultimately effective ad for the American Cancer Society. The 30 second spot features a fetus puffing away on a cigarette while a voiceover rolls, reminding the audience of the dangers of smoking while pregnant.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter from 2011, Fincher stated he wanted to play with the familiar image of the space-baby from Stanley Kubrick’s science fiction film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”  Check it out below.
