Go Daddy Annoints Ella Koon GoDaddy Girl For Asia

godaddy_ella_koon.jpg

As if the existing GoDaddy hotties weren't enough, the domain name registrar has enlisted Asian musician, model and actress Ella Koon to represent the brand in Asia. Fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, French and English, Koonwas born in Tahiti, raised in Hong Kong and educated in England.

Of Koon, Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons said, "We've been taking care of customers in the Far East for years - now we're ready to have a Go Daddy Girl based in Asia. Ella is an absolute beauty. She's smart, she's talented and she knows how to leverage the Internet."

Of her selection as Go Daddy Girl, Koon perfectly recited PR speak saying, "It's an honor to join a great company like Go Daddy. Go Daddy is a dominant player in a highly competitive industry. That says a lot! I like the fact Go Daddy knows how to have fun, but takes the business of serving its customers seriously."

Taylor Momsen is Hot. But Not With All That Eyeshadow

madonna_loudes_taylor_momsen.jpg

Yesterday Macy's Girl, along with the Material Girl and her daughter, Lourdes appeared at Macy's in New York for the launch of Lourde's Material Girl clothing line. Macy's Girl Momsen, looking like some sort of character out of a vampire flick, had so much eye shadow on it...um...overshadowed the fact she really is a very pretty woman. OK, girl. She's 17.

Of her fashion line, Lourdes told The Huffington Post, "I've always been really interested in fashion. My outfits when I was little and started dressing myself were awful. But I think the '80s are really back right now. I think it's really changing, a whole new scene is coming in. The geek chic is totally where we're going."

Just leave the over done black eyeshadow in the cosmetic case, Taylor.

Diesel Continues Stupidity With Flabby Ass Sneaker Kick

diesel_kick_ass.jpg

Thanks to Copyranter who subjected us to watching a less than tight ass wobble for twenty seconds...in slow motion...after having been kicked by a Diesel sneaker, we have no choice but to share the jiggle with you. If only to help remove the imagery from our mind.

that said, you've got to love a brand that comes right out and says what it's products are good for. In this case, Deisel's sneakers are no good for running. But they are very good for kicking asses.

For more ass kicking, see Diesel's giant sneaker on wheels kick a giant ass on wheels.

Be Stupid. Be Very, Very Stupid.

Domestic Abuse Rarely Stops

yr_chicago_ndvh.jpg

Here's a domestic violence PSA that clearly shares the horrific violence of domestic abuse without actually showing the violence. And yet, it's more powerful than PSA's that do show the violence. Created by Y&R Chicago for the National Domestic Violence Abuse Hotline, the work is beautifully executed and brings us inside the mind of the victim if only for a minute to share her tragedy. And it delivers a truism about domestic violence: it rarely stops.

The spot is accompanied by Peter Gabriel's eerie Mercy Street as the woman looks at herself in the mirror, tries to heal herself only to realize there's no end to it. Unless, of course, she calls the NDVH hotline.

Ali Lohan Bares legs For Sister Lindsay's Clothing Line

ali_lohan_6126_clothing_minidress.jpg

Well we suppose if you're in jail and you've got a clothing line to promote, you can always enlist the help of a family member. Which is just what Lindsay did when she asked her 16-year-old sister, Ali, to model for her 6126 clothing line.

For the campaign, Ali models two short dresses, one of which is being billed as "cleavage-baring." We assume there's cleavage there but we just don't see it. Anyway, sister to the aid of another. How sweet.

UPDATE: OK. Here'sthe hotness we were looking for.

Diesel Sticks Giant Sneaker Up Giant Ass

diesel_ass_sneaker.jpg

There just really not much to say about this Diesel sneaker commercial which has a giant sneaker chasing a giant ass around until it corners the ass and shoves itself up the ass's crack. But this is how we sell sneakers today. Though in Diesel's case, it's right on brief because, well, the brand just wants you to Be Stupid.

Dana Ford Gives Us 1-900-Buy-A-Car

ill_hanner_dana_ford.jpg

Video blogger Jill Hanner is in a few commercials for Tri-State area Dana Ford car dealer. In one, looking all 1-900 dial-a-date sultry-like, she seductively coos, "Wanna save even more? Text the word 'fusion' to me, Jill at 50123. I'm waiting for your text."

Of course some creep called the car dealer asking if he could have Jill's phone number so he could call her.

Hanner was an "agent" for Ford's Fiesta Movement campaign which gave Ford Fiestas to 100 social media elite so they could record their every experience with the car during a 6 month period.

There's a Pubic Hair on That Billboard

pubic_schools.jpg

You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach you get when a client calls and says, "Um, we have a problem?" Even after you know everything has been triple checked four times over by 20 different people? Well, Blue Waters Group President Patrick Strickler was feeling a bit of that this week when he realized a billboard his agency created for SouthBendOn read "pubic school" instead of "public schools."

Yes, these things happen. Annual reports go out with errors in the first sentence. A nipple slip causes an uproar. A store sign touts a body part rather than a burger special. They just happen and there's nothing we can really do about it.
