David Dobrik's photo app Dispo relaunched with an ad imagining him as an old man

David Dobrik’s new photo app that reimagines the old way photography worked has launched a new version of the app with an ad that dresses the YouTuber up in an old costume. 

Dobrik’s app is called Dispo. It’s essentially a digital version of an old-school disposable camera. (Get it? Dispo.) A new ad features Dobrik as an old man, crying and flipping through old photos of his partying with influencer pals. The spot was directed by Mark Romanek — director of the film One Hour Photo, which does not feel accidental — the makeup was done by Oscar- winning artist Kazu Hiro. It’s super realistic. 

Right now Dispo remains invitation only and people are fighting to get in. Basically you take pictures through a small aperture with a crude zoom function, just like an old disposable. Your photos “develop” the next day at 9 a.m. There’s no editing, the pics just are what they are. The relaunched version of Dispo will let you create both public, collaborative, and private rolls of photos but no actual social feed.
