VIDEO: Martin Scorcese Directs Chanel Ad

You know that a fashion house has staying power when it can enlist the directorial skills of an Oscar winner like . Such was the case with Chanel, who hired Scorcese to direct a commercial for its men’s fragrance, Bleu de Chanel.

While the French actor Gaspard Ulliel captivates most of my attention, I can’t help but compare it to David Lynch’s gig for Dior. With Lynch, at least you still saw his signature touch in the video. Scorcese’s, while much shorter in length, looked more like the typical run-of-the-mill fragrance spot. Even Frank Miller made an interesting take on Gucci’s perfume!

Before They Were Stars: Tina Fey’s Bank Commercial

UPDATE: Make sure to check out Paul Rudd as a Bat Mitzvah DJ here.

As painful as Liz Lemon’s commercial for “1-(900)-OK-Face” was to watch, we at least knew that clip wasn’t real. Unfortunately for , this spot for Mutual Savings Bank is.

After watching the video, keep one thing in mind: The things you did - or wore - in 1995 won’t necessarily prevent you from earning multiple Emmys in the future. (Until that time, you can revisit the classic spot after the jump.)

Julia Stiles: Vodka Commercial Star?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Commercials, Video,


When I associate celebrities with vodka, I usually think about Sean Combs talking non-stop about Ciroc on Twitter. I hear Donald Trump promoting Trump Vodka, despite the fact he doesn’t drink. I envision Dan Akyroyd pouring the liquid from a Crystal Head skull.

But do I ever think of ? Well, I didn’t…until now.

After checking out the actress’ new commercials for Stoli vodka, let us know what you think. Does Stiles make a good alcohol pitchwoman? Or should she stick to other things like her upcoming role in Dexter?

VIDEO: Did FOX, ABC Ban Cleavage-Filled Commercial?


Although the world should be used to seeing women parading around in their bras by now, there’s one thing Lane Bryant commercials have that Victoria’s Secret spots don’t: large breasts.

And when you have large breasts, you get lots of cleavage. And when you have lots of cleavage, you supposedly get banned by ABC and FOX.

According to Lane Bryant, a clothing company for full-figured women, both Victoria’s Secret-friendly networks rejected requests to air the ad. “It certainly appears to be discrimination against full-sized women,” one source told the New York Post. A Lane Bryant rep added. “There’s no difference other than they’re bigger girls.”

Needless to say, these accusations now have ABC and FOX both crying foul.

VIDEO: Tiger Woods Silenced in New Nike Commercial

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Sports, Commercials, Gossip, Video,


What’s the best way to reintroduce Tiger Woods into the world of advertising? By keeping him quiet.

For Tiger’s first Nike commercial post-scandal, the embattled golfer doesn’t do the talking - Earl Woods does.

“Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive,” his deceased father says. “To promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. And did you learn anything?”

Yes, Dad. If you cheat on your wife, get into an embarrassing car accident and go into rehab, you can still make money without having to utter a single word.

Betty White may be “scared to death” about her upcoming Saturday Night Live gig, but she didn’t appear that way during yesterday’s Ellen show.

During Monday’s broadcast, White admitted that she had been asked to host SNL three other times before, but she had always turned the producers down because the program is “so New York” and she’s not.
