Rob Zombie has directed his share of horror films, including House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects and remakes of Halloween and Halloween II, but now the rocker/director has jumped into the commercial world. A television ad for Woolite detergent was just released with Zombie at the helm.

The 30-second spot was filmed as a horror movie and shows helpless clothes being stretched, shrunk and subject to other forms of laundry torture. Zombie described the experience as something a little out of his element, but still enjoyable.

"It was sort of strange, but I love doing stuff like that," he said.

You can watch the commercial in its entirety below.

Thanks to NME for the heads up.
