New GoDaddy Girl Joan Rivers Supports Same-Sex Marriage

joan_rivers_gay_mariage.jpg

Now that she's a GoDaddy Girl, Jon Rivers can do anything, even support gay marriage in New York. Which is exactly what she's doing in a new commercial for gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign.

In the ad, Rivers says, "All New Yorkers believe in fairness, that's why we should support marriage equality. For goodness sakes, come on guys,"

Sadly, she looks way less hot in this commercial that she did in the GoDaddy commercial.

Khloe's Ad Far Less Hot Than Kim's

khloe_unbreakable.jpg

In one of the most unsexy outings we have seen in a very long time, Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom, in a fragrance commercial for Unbreakable, utter banalties like, "There's something sexy about a couple sharing a scent...that perfect mix of masculine and feminine...that sometimes the bond between two soles is truly unbreakable."

Yea, they won't be saying that when they're divorce is plastered all over Perez Hilton. Oops. Sorry. That was really mean.

Cast of Glee Sells Chevrolet With Musical Performance

So here's the Chevy commercial the cast of Glee did during its post-Super Bowl broadcast last night. Very much in style with the show's many performances, the commercial was a grand production with the entire cast dressed in white and doing what they do best: singing and dancing.

And in other news, Lea Michelle had all her clothes on for the entire length of the commercial.

Joan Rivers the New GoDaddy Girl

godaddy_girl_joan_rivers.jpg

Now we were all probably expecting some super hot chick to be unveiled as the new GoDaddy Girl but not in a million years would we have guessed it would turn out to be Joan Rivers. Which, of course, now makes us feel really creepy for leering over all the tease shots GoDaddy sent out leading up to the reveal.

What really makes the spot works is this line of copy Joan utters part way through the commercial: "If you want look like me you want shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch and and extensive surgery for dinner." And we have to admit we love the reference to her ass as "the gift shop."

Mercedes Doesn't Impress With Diddy

diddy_mercedes_sb_11.jpg

There's been some significant chat about the appearance of Diddy in the Merdedes Benz Super Bowl commercial but we don't see what the big deal is all about. So a bunch of old Mercedes Benz's "wake up" and make their way to a hanger where this year's new models are ready to strut their stuff. So what.

Yea, it's mildly humorous to see Diddy wake up to notice his own Mercedes has come to life and sped away with all the others and again at the end when, in his bathrobe, he's looking around for his car in a sea of early model vehicles. But something's missing. The spot just feels mundane and plain. There's really nothing at all special about it.

The only reason this commercial will get even the tiniest bit of notoriety at all is because Diddy is in it. Apart from that, it's just run of the mill banality.

Kelly Brooke Shoots New Campaign for Bikini Line

kelly_brooke_bikini_pink.jpg

Yesterday, Kelly Brooke was in Los Angeles shooting a new ad campaign for her New Look line of swimwear. There's really nothing else to report on this other than a few comments Brooke made about her boobs. Not relevant at all to advertising but amusing nonetheless.

She was quoted as saying, "Well, they're mine so that's nice. They're not fake, but they hang a bit. They're not super-perky because they're so big. That's always a big disappointment, I think. Like when you take your top off and they go flop."

Wow. She even made a comment about her boobs rhyme. Impressive.

Brooke was previously seen in a billboard campaign for Reebok's EasyTone sneakers. Yea, the kicks that supposedly make your ass look amazing just by wearing the shoes.
