Ford’s creates a fake supermodel in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Mustang ad

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Misc. Tech, Transportation,

We’re always fan of interesting marketing technics, but this one takes that cake. Ford has unleashed a series of marking campaigns in this years Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine that feature the sexy Mustang in different colors alongside one beautiful model in a matching swimsuit. The model, Dalena Henriques, never shows her face, but it credited in each ad.

A quick Google search for Dalena Henriques brings up DalenaHenriques.com, no surprise there. The thing is, when you visit the site, every photo in her portfolio features her with the Mustang, with no face revealed. It then becomes obvious--Ford created a fake supermodel (and yes, they credited her as a "supermodel") of their own as an additional means to generate buzz.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Television, Photos, Oops Photos,

You know - I would have been perfectly willing to come to this poor girl’s defense.  I mean, who doesn’t have cellulite?  And for the first time in quite some time, looks like a normal woman!  (Okay, maybe except for that headband get-up.)  But when the actress’ rep claimed the Daily Mail pics weren’t real, I had to laugh.

Discovery to air recut Man vs. Wild episodes

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Cable, Gossip,

Discovery logoIt’s a long-running argument…discussion…whatever. Where did the first roots of reality TV really get placed? MTV gets credited for The Real World, but some say CBS revolutionized the genre with shows like Survivor. Reality TV is very loosely defined as “unscripted,” and that means reality really extends back way before cable even existed. News broadcasts, even game shows can be called reality. And in the very earliest days of game shows, when on-screen competition was born, scandal marred the public view of television. The quiz shows were fixed, and the way the public looked at television was for ever changed. Today, most of us accept that not all reality TV is really real. Still…it comes as a surprise when we find that some shows are truly not at all what they seem. And now, the Discovery Channel is getting ready to eat crow. Or maybe ratings.
