Back in 1969 or thereabouts when the original Star Trek hit the airwaves, we wonder if William
Shatner, or anyone else for that matter, had any clue as to just how long his career and relevancy would last. And just how iconic he would become allowing him, of course, to become an uber spokesman for several brands. His latest stint comes from State Farm which produced a turkey frying safety video in which Shatner decides not to play it safe at all.
"Dammit, Bill, that's too much oil!"
In this wacky Johan Renck-directed video, the unbelievably freaky looking Donatella Versace has her way with a collection of automaton hotties, played by Lindsey Wixson and Daphne Groeneveld, who Versace controls with stings and levers. Appropriately gap-toothed and puffy-lipped, the pair are guided through the machinations of Versace's inner freakishness as they model fashions for the brand's new line of affordable clothing.
In an effort highlight its "celebrated brand philosophy of understanding the individual flyer," American Airlines tapped Kevin Spacey to play three roles as well as himself in a new commercial. In the UK ad we see three different versions of Kevin getting ready for a flight. Once the Kevins arrive at the airport, Kevin provides a voice over that touches upon the importance of understanding everyone is an individual, a notion Spacey says every good actor understands but, unfortunately, not every airline...except, of course, American Airlines.
Thanks to Who Is That Hot Ad Girl who has a thing or T-Mobile Girl, Carly Foulkes, we checked out the new T-Mobile Holiday commercial in which Ms. Foulkes introduces us to T-Mobile's 4G Wonderland. And this being a T-Mobile commercial, all the elves sport pink hair...just like Carly's dress. You can check out the commercial below and a behind the scenes video over at Who Is That Hot Ad Girl.
We hope Carly sticks around as long as Catherine Zeta-Jones did.
Are you a fan of Smallville? Or V? Or just love any chance you can get to stare at Laura Vandervoort? Well, now you can stare more as PETA, otherwise known as celebrity porn for a cause, is out with a new animal rights ad. In the ad, Vandervoort is naked and painted to look like a reptile. The ad's tagline asks, "Whose Skin Are You In?" Of course, the ad is aimed at urging people to "leave wildlife out of your wardrobe."
In a short PSA, Vandervoort says, "I want to make people aware that if you want a high end python bag or crocodile... Three or four alligators have to die for each purse. It's just ridiculous. A lot of people think that reptiles don't feel, but they do."

Nike, with help from agency AKQA, partnered with UK pop singer Ellie Goulding who, it seems, loves to run as much as she loves to sing. Nike Running collaborated with her to make a video about her music and her running while she was on tour in LA, NYC and London and training for a half marathon with Nike+.
The video shows Ellie's running and highlights her music, lifestyle and personal moments in London, New York and Los Angeles. It's all set to a remix of her song Under The Sheets. Give it a watch. Like the song? You can download it here.
While Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher might be having relationship difficulties, Moore is pushing ahead and can be seen in new work for Ann Taylor which has hired Moore to front their holiday ad campaign.

Rapper/songwriter/producer/actor/whatever Trey Songz (aka Tremaine Aldon Neverson) can be seen in new work for street wear clothing brand Rocawear. In the quick :17 teaser, Songz is seen biting his lower lip in anticipation of getting a bit more from the woman he sees disrobe in front of him. He is then seen climbing on top of her in bed to, well, one assumes, have his way with her superfine body.
