Whenever a director establishes their signature style other directors are bound to copy it, either because they're hacks or because they want to channel that director's iconic style into their own film.
The folks from ad agency DDB who created the Wes Anderson-inspired tourism campaign for Latvia's capital city Riga clearly wanted to add a bit of Wes' signature symmetry and cool use of color to their production.
They also must have chosen Wes Anderson as their muse because Latvia looks like the setting of one of Wes' films, and the Latvians who star in these fun ads don't have to pretend to be quirky characters- because they're not acting.
So far there are videos for five characters- the Taxi Driver, the Senior, the Priest, the Blogger and the Teacher, five colorful characters meant to symbolize the fact that you can "Be anything in Riga!"
