Entertainment Weekly mentioned this commercial in an article titled "The Triumph of 'Twin Peaks'" (April 6, 1990):
Lynch recently made his debut as an ad director on a new spot for Yves Saint Laurent's Opium fragrance. ''It's got an Oriental theme, a woman opening the bottle. It's a very sensual commercial,'' Lynch says with typical exuberance. ''You'd know it if you saw it. I really had a blast doing it. I've also done a public service announcement for New York City on trash and rats. It's in black and white. And I had a really good time doing that.'
