How appropriate. While the advertising industry kicks off its annual circle jerk, Kate Moss finds herself in the middle of another. Artist and filmmaker Baille Walsh is out with 3D work shot at 1,000 frames per second and captures Kate 'inexorably in the parallax gap; a butterfly in a spider's web."
Good God. And if that weren't enough, the ads description continues with, "Kate's face appears frozen, transforming her into an impenetrable deity. She is a figure of contemporary fantasy, shattering her own self-image."
Seriously? Seriously? yea, the technical shit is great but why? Why?
Oh, sorry, it's just an experiment.
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."
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.
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.
- Is the New York Jets situation with Ines Sainz just another publicity stunt?
- Need to hype a stupid app that analyzes your poop? Take a shot of a chick with her tights down taking a dump in a stall. Yea. That'll do it.
- The Lindsay Lohan Milkaholic law suit thing has ended in settlement.
- Brooklyn creative agency Big Spaceship is out with new work for Microsoft. Called Always Beautiful, the "interactive music experience that uses the history of the web as a personal paintbrush" touts IE9.
- Counter-culture princess Charlyne Yi has shed her hair and dismissed food to raise awareness for OxFam America.
- For the Born HIV Free campaign and the Global Fund, YouTube is launching a campaign from Johannes Leonardo that will position 20 teams of campaign envoys at Manhattan intersections, holding signs with HIV facts that urge people to "free future generations from HIV by 2015."
It's Friday. It's almost the weekend. And we're getting a late start today. So we think this little news item from one of our favorite PR professionals is perfect to share. It's light. It's fun. And it's involves hot cheerleaders. Without further ado, here's what we were sent:
'In case you think ChaCha is only about text messages: On ChaCha.com, the Justin Bieber Topic page usually gets 1,200 page views a day and has remained in the #1 spot for a very long time. Nikki Minaj has recently taken the leading spot, applying pressure to the Bieb's in a very close battle for #1.
But, yesterday, Justin got spanked by 20 of the hottest NFL cheerleaders who collected 16,000+ page views.
I send this as a fun fact, not so you can ask me how to get in touch with that Redskins cheerleader (although if in your other reporting you find out, DO let me know.)"
Thanks, George. We'll do out best investigative journalism on that for you.
While we're not all that excited about it - which is odd because, well, we're usually very easy to excite - the new Megan Fox commercial for Armani is out and the internet is slathering all over it. Which, of course, is totally understandable given the unbelievable hotness of Fox.
Called The Tip, we see Fox open a hotel room door to let a handsome waiter in who proceeds to set her dinner up while Fox changes out of her robe and into her jeans...in full site of the waiter...who does all he can to take as long as he can to set up her dinner so he can admire Fox as she changes.
When she finishes changing, perfectly time with when the waiter finishes setting up the table, Fox presents the man with a tip. Of course, he turns it down because, well, he's already received the best tip any waiter could have received.
That said, we hate her tattoos.
And on the heels of Brazilian model Sabraine Banando's traffic stopping billboard appearance for Wonderbra's Full Effect Bra, 19-year-old X Factor contestant Lucie Jones has been selected to front a new campaign for the line.
Which makes perfect sense because Jones has always wanted bigger boobs. In an interview with MailOnline, she said, "Sometimes I really want to wear a specific dress and I just have nothing to fill the top half of it." Well now you can bust right out of that dress, Lucie because your breasts will be enormous thanks to the miraculous Full Effect Bra!
Guy Ritchie, one of the first big name directors to make a commercial (BMW's The Hire), has teamed with his Sherlock Holmes star, Jude Law, and Slovak model Michaela Kocianova to create a five minute film for Dior Homme. OK, it's really a four minute film becasue the entire last minute is just movie-style credits.
The film is all noir and shit with Kocianova helping him dress as he speaks to another woman on the telephone. Or something like that. Who the hell knows. It's hard to tell who's talking to whom in this film or what the hell's going on. But, I guess it doesn't really matter because, well, nothing ever does when it comes to high fashion. The more logically whacked it is, the better.
Of course, none of this matters. The only important thing is that a mood is created, the product is shot and a mysterious overtone is created. And this film succeeds at all three.
After all, what else can a fragrance ad say? Buy our smelly shit and spray it on your neck? Nope. That's just way too boring.
We all know most professional sports athletes aren't idiots. Though if you see them in commercials such as this Heat-created spot for EA Sports NHL Slapshot featuring Wayne Gretzky you'd think otherwise.
After a seemingly oblivious Gretzky goes Bull in a China Shop while watching a hockey game, the maid shows up and slaps him upside the proverbial head with what any non-idiot would do in a living room when overcome with the urge to play hockey: play NHL Slapshot on the Wii.
