KTLA reporter Sam Rubin and Samuel L. Jackson

Perhaps when you're an entertainment reporter, you ought to Google the celebrity - as a precaution! - you're about to interview - before you make a mistake like KTLA anchor Sam Rubin did with Samuel L. Jackson.

Jackson appeared on the news show to promote his film Robocop when Rubin asked him about his Super Bowl commercial. The Avengers star quickly realized that Rubin mixed him up with The Matrix actor Laurence Fishburne - who did a Kia car commercial for the Super Bowl - and was even quicker to chastise RubIn: "What Super Bowl commercial? You're as crazy as the people on Twitter. I'm not Laurence Fishburne!"

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Pregnancies, Videos,

Jessica SimpsonJessica Simpson has been "obsessed" with her weight her entire life.

The Fashion Star mentor - who lost 60 pounds on the diet program following the birth of her first daughter Maxwell seven months ago, before announcing she is pregnant with her second child - admits she was a yo-yo dieter all of her life.

In a newly released Weight Watchers 360 advertisement in which she teams up with the company's other spokesperson Jennifer Hudson, that will hit screens on Thursday, the 32-year-old star says, "I obsessed about my weight my whole life... I was always on some new life-stopping diet." The former size 0 star then claims Weight Watchers, "let's me be me," and says "I amazed myself."

Meanwhile, Dreamgirls star Jennifer admits that the program completely changed her life as well and helped her lose 80 pounds over the past two years. "I was overweight my whole life. I figured I was just born that way," the 31 year-old singer says.

Watch every Apple commercial from 1977-2012

Speaking of marketing, watch every Apple commercial from 1977 to present day. There's about 485 commercials, which includes the famous Mac vs PC, the technicolored hipster iPod dance ads and, of course, the iconic 1984 Macintosh SuperBowl spot directed by Sir Ridley Scott. One of my favorites, the first iPhone ad 'Surprised' from 2007.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue has bared her famous bum for a spoof advert. The 44-year-old singer appears in the joke video for body insurance by British artist Katerina Jebb, which sees the Australian star walking up a flight of stairs in slow motion wearing a racy, white backless gown which exposes her pert behind.

"Are your assets fully covered? Protect and cover the things that are most dear to you. Don't wait until tomorrow. Beautiful Body Of London," the voiceover asks. A logo for fake company Beautiful Body Insurance is seen flashing on screen at the same time.

Madonna’s Perfume Ad Too Racy for TV

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, ABC, Gossip, News, Video,

Madonna's perfume line, Truth or DareMadonna's perfume commercial is too racy for TV. The "Girls Gone Wild" singer's new 30-second black-and-white ad for her Truth or Dare scent have been deemed inappropriate for Disney-owned channel ABC with bosses ordering that shots of her breasts and butt be digitally altered to cover them up.

"ABC viewed the ad [and] came back with a list of changes. They say they want her bra digitally made bigger, and to extend higher to cover more of her chest, and her corset longer to cover more of her bottom. ABC also wants to cut another suggestive scene where Madonna writhes around," a source the New York Post's Page Six.

However, even once the changes have been made, channel bosses have ruled the ad (seen after the jump) can only run after the 9pm watershed, with the exception of daytime show The View.

"ABC has requested some changes be made to the content of the Truth or Dare perfume commercial," another source said.

Acura, Cadillac, Honda, and Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial sneak peeks

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Transportation, Videos,

It’s that time of the year where we can freely get down on junk food, trash talk, and look forward to the commercials just as much as the big game. We're talking about the Super Bowl (oh, and don't forget to enter our Big Game Giveaway!) Each year millions upon millions are dumped on commercials for mere marketing purposes.

Without a doubt, Volkswagen had one of the most successful commercials last year (see video after the jump to jog your memory) and is aiming to repeat its success again this year staying with the Star Wars theme. However, Volkswagen is not the only one fighting for airtime during the big game. Honda, Acura, and Cadillac have aired their Super Bowl commercials early this year and I want to focus your attention on the creativity of the ads.

Manufacturers know that millions will be watching the game on the 5th, and one would think that they would put effort into creating an entertaining commercial. Well one would think, but that’s not always the case. Let’s take a look at the Cadillac ATS spot, above.
