Idea For a Corona Ad

For those who haven't seen the Twilight Zone episode "Eye of the Beholder": SPOILER ALERT! (You can look it up on YouTube and watch it before you read on.)

And for those who haven't seen the Corona beer ads on TV here in the States, they tend to base themselves on dialogue-less perspective tricks using the Corona bottles at a relaxed scene on a beach. And the more recent ones involve a couple on the beach (shot from behind) silently going at each other for ogling passing members of the other sex.

Anyway, my idea: Start with that same scene of the couple in their chairs. The camera zooms in kind of semi-slowly on one of the Corona bottles. Eventually, it gets too close and knocks it over. A voice says "Oops!" The camera zooms back out. The couple simultaneously turn their heads to glare at the camera, and it is here that they turn out to have the sort of faces that the majority of the people in the "Eye of the Beholder" world have.
