Trivia:

Got his start as a still photographer. He directed the title sequence of Napoleon Dynamite (2004). He also directed the hilarious Powerade commercial showing the Amish drag race between two hay bale-carrying, horse-drawn carts. The commercial was pulled from the air due to a lawsuit between Pepsi (which owns Gatorade) and Coca-Cola (which owns Powerade). Coke settled out of court. See more »
