Friends, we know who has won the Super Bowl — and it’s not either of the teams playing. Cue music…it’s Timothée Chalamet!
The actor is gearing up to take the internet by storm while starring in a Cadillac commercial as “Edgar Scissorhands” — AKA the son of the famed Edward Scissorhands. The ad also stars Winona Ryder, who is once again portraying Kim Boggs, the role she played in the iconic 1990 Tim Burton film.
Throughout the 90-second spot, Timothée is decked out in full Scissorhands-attire, and we see him navigate a day in the life of Edgar. Of course, with blades as hands (not to mention a magnetic body suit), certain things prove to be a bit of a challenge, like riding public transit, playing football, or making a sandwich. But everything changes for Edgar when his mom presents him with an electric Cadillac LYRIQ car that boasts — yep — hands-free features. (We told you this was a car commercial, what did you expect?)
Naturally, because everything Timothée touches turns to internet gold, the online world is already buzzing about the Little Women star in the Scissorhands suit. “WHY IS HE STILL SO ATTRACTIVE THO EVEN WHEN HE’S DRESSED LIKE THAT?” one fan mused in the YouTube comments. Other fans are rooting for Timothée’s Edgar to get his very own movie (yes please!) and we have to imagine that Winona would probably be on board too. The Stranger Things actor told Variety that she was excited to step into Kim’s shoes thirty years later, and she “loved the idea of working with Timothée.” There you have it! Hollywood, can we make that happen?
