When she’s not emotionally destroying Euphoria fans, or emotionally destroying Spider Man fans, Zendaya is a headstrong small business owner named Sally, who sells seashells by the sea. Super savvy!
In a new commercial from website builder Squarespace, Zendaya plays Sally, who is fed up with shoddy seashell sales. She turns to the site to help market her seashells to people who do not do live near the beach because, to be honest, why would you buy seashells when they are already free? Sally quickly transforms her seashell shack into a seashell empire, which is the main lesson of childhood tongue twister, for some reason.
The colorful ad filled with alliteration is directed by Edgar Wright, also known for his terrifying dynamism Last night in Soho. It also featured narration and a small cameo from rapper Andrew 3000, who sails the shore
“I was incredibly excited to have the opportunity to work and create with Edgar Wright and André 3000,” Zendaya said People that she had been a fan of Wright, “I really enjoyed working with Edgar Wright because I’m a huge fan of his work. He’s lovely in person and it’s a dream to work with him.
She continued, “I’ve been a Squarespace user for a while, so I know the brand on a personal level. So when they offered to retrofit the ‘Sally Sold Seashells by the Seashore’ tongue twister, I was drawn to it. Wait, does that mean Zendaya has a secret small business website that no one knows about?
