the Japanese discovered Twin Peaks through shared VHS tapes and Wowow, a satellite-TV channel. Fans there became just as rabid for the show, if not more so: While the 1992 prequel film, Fire Walk With Me, fared poorly in the U.S., it did really well in Japan—where it was released first.
To build on that momentum, Lynch and some cast members gathered ’round to create a series of ads for Georgia Coffee, a Coca-Cola-owned canned coffee brand, just for the Japanese market.
Like the series, the ads are quirky as all hell and feature their own mystery—the disappearance of one man’s Japanese wife. Four spots lead up to the story’s conclusion, but there’s a lot to appreciate here for Western fans, too.
