Jeff Wall + Bullet Time = Toshiba?

Chalk this up as more proof to Picasso's idiom that good artists copy and great artists steal. The latest and, I'm sure, greatest Toshiba TV commercial takes the whole bullet time thing Michel Gondry pioneered to the next level by taking a page from Jeff Wall's cinematic yet painterly photography (how is all of that even possible?). The whole thing reminds me of a better executed (and bigger budgeted) version of a music video that Patrick Daughters did for King of Leon a while back. Visual references after the jump.
