American Express' "M. Night Shyamalan"
The noted storyteller who explores the supernatural, filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, The Village), gets an eyeful of surreal, inexplicable happenings as he sits in a restaurant booth. The strange goings on include a woman seemingly willing her verbally abusive male companion to choke on a bite of food, and a lady who captures an annoying fly with her tongue ala a lizard. Shyamalan explains, "My life is about finding the time to dream. That's why my card is American Express." At this point, we see Shymalan entering another restaurant, requesting "a table for one."
