Adapted from the children's game known as "telephone" or "grapevine," "One Nation under Tommy" is a mutation/deformation/liberation of a cynically patriotic Tommy Hilfiger commercial. The commercial was given to a writer who wrote a script from it that was then given to a filmmaker who made a film of that script which was then passed to another writer who &c. We did that five times over two years, and "One Nation under Tommy" is the result.
