I enjoy very much the AT&T commercial with orange fabric falling, falling from the St Louis arch and the Los Vegas casinos, and I thought of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Then I saw the disclaimer across the bottom of the screen saying Christo and Jeanne-Claude have no affiliation blah blah blah. So is it or isn't it? My impression is that surely it must be. 

I Googled them and found that Jeanne-Claude had died last year.  Perhaps the commercial is an homage.  Perhaps not.

The picture above is Running Fence from Marin County in California.  It was the work we knew best.  They have made us see reality in a new way.
