T-Mobile No More Mr Nice Girl

This morning, T-Mobile released the full version of its new "No More Mr. Nice Girl" campaign, which sees its spokesmodel, Carly, ditching the magenta dresses the normally wears in exchange for a magenta and black leather jumpsuit. She then hops on a Ducati and drives off, which we guess signifies that the company is no longer playing games and is getting serious about competing. We don't really know. I mean, if that were true, then they'd stop referring to HSPA+ as 4G, but, that seems to be the cornerstone of the new campaign. Ah well. At least Carly looks cool. Peep the commercial spot for yourself after the jump.

See (Finally!) Taylor Momsen in John Galliano Commercial

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Celebrities, Videos,


Earlier this year, we got to hear Taylor Momsen (sort) of fronting a perfume commercial for John Galliano. Now, we actually get to see her in the ad.

Although we found it strange that she didn’t really appear in the first version, we’re kind of torn now. After watching both videos, let us know what you think. Do you like the Parlez-Moi d'Amour spot better when you’re focusing on her singing – or on her raccoon eyes?

So, how does a one-minute ad spot become the stuff of legendary advertising? Take one actor who won’t compromise, some interesting hair and make-up ideas, and you’ve got commercial history.

“I didn’t know how far [Logitech] wanted to go with the look and the character. If it was just me kind of walking around, people would think it was weird,” Kevin Bacon explained. While people still think it’s a little bit weird, most seem to really “get” the ad -- and we’ve got Kevin Bacon to thank.

Before They Were Stars: Taylor Momsen Shakes Her Chicken

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Commercials, Video,

Before she was collecting tips in her shoes … before she started resembling the Bride of Chucky … before she started shaking things up on Gossip Girl ... Taylor Momsen was shaking her chicken.

In this 1997 commercial for Shake ‘N Bake, a then 3-year-old star tells the audience that she “shooked and mom cooked.”

Is this child labor the reason why Momsen blames her parents for making her so miserable?
