Fred Durst is directing a commercial for eHarmony

on May 05, 2014, 4:25pm

Back in February, Limp Bizkit frontman and occasional director Fred Durst put out an open casting call via Twitter. “Do you look like Jim Morrison? Literally?”, he wrote. “Please send me your picture, name, & age to ilooklikejim@gmail.com – Jim around age 23/24.” While the idea that Durst is shooting some Morrison biopic/hip-hop-era delights me to no end, I’m equally intrigued by the auteur’s current project: directing a commercial for the dating site eHarmony.

Yes, the website where your cousin and some dude name Ricky, Jr. first met has employed Durst to film an ad campaign. Need actual proof? Here’s what they tweeted over the weekend:

No word if the commercial is related to Durst’s request for a Morrison doppelgänger. If not, we have a few other bulletproof ideas:

— Two couples wearing matching Wes Borland make-up and costumes.

— An unnecessary cameo by Stephen Dorff.

— A loving couple that suddenly engages in a Matrix-style Kung fu battle.

— An actual ad starring Lindsay Lohan.

— So many red Yankee caps!
