GALLERY 08: Tribeca - Ben Stiller, Drew Barrymore

Hamburg, who co-wrote 'Meet The Parents', went for a dead-pan, no frills approach when shooting these comic spots to promote New York's Tribeca Film Festival. Each ad combines footage from passers-by on the streets of New York commenting on their favourite Hollywood movies. This is intercut with scenes of film stars mimicking famous film moments. Intentionally miscast, Ben Stiller poses as Russell Crowe in 'Gladiator', hilariously brandishing plastic shield and sword, while Drew Barrymore is Joe Pesci's Mafioso from 'Goodfellas'.
