fairy tale outbreak: Snow White and more Snow White

"Mirror, Mirror" starring Julia Roberts as the evil Queen is opening March 20th, 2012 in the States. It looks a bit dull. Even though director Tarsem Singh is famous for his uber opulence, the costumes and styling look weirdly cheap. "Snow White and the Huntsman" on the other hand, with Charlize Theron as the wicked one, looks amazing (even though the ever open-mouthed Kirsten Stewart is playing "Snow"). We have to wait until June 1st to see the divine Ms. Theron's maniacal lust for youth and the fairest of them all. Snow White brought to us by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm; their collection of this and other tales published 200 years ago.

In the spirit of this fairy tale outbreak, here some stills from a puppet-theater type ad for Austrian jam. Warning: eating this product will not guarantee you eternal youth. Eating Snow's heart does apparently. The entire 30 seconds glued together as a short film at the bottom of this post.
