How to Sharpen Pencils: The Commercial


Melville House presents a 30-second TV spot for David Rees’ new book, How to Sharpen Pencils.

Check out the video after the jump. And don’t miss the great conversation we had with Rees last month.

“As you’ll see, the commercial borrows the tried and true tropes of American infomercials to sell a truly revolutionary product: the definitive guide to sharpening #2 pencils.”
