Obama Wins Love, Loyalty of Pop Stars

obama-tatyana.jpg

Which means he deserves your love and loyalty, too. *eyebrow raise*

Here's a pro-Obama video produced by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. In it, Barack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech is taken up as a kind of musical mantle by images of stars like Nick Cannon, Common, Scarlett Johansson, Tatyana Ali, John Legend ... we could go on.

We like a good-looking, nice sounding guy as much as anybody else, but with Super Tuesday in our faces, we recommend doing homework before voting. Here's one source, and here's some campaign ad analysis from the same non-partisan group.

Let us know if you've got other resources worth looking at.

Obama Girl Introduces MediaCurves Super Bowl Ad Survey

amber_lee_mediacurves.jpg

Looky, Looky! It's Obama Girl, aka Amber Lee Tettinger...and her curves... introducing the results of this year's MediaCurves Super Bowl commercial study. And we thought all she did was Barely Political Work., Hmm.

This particular study, which surveyed 2,400 Super Bowl viewers (eat that, USA Today!), declared the FedEx Pigeon ad the best commercial of the year. Following FedEx were Budweiser's Clydesdales commercial, Coke's balloon commercial, Diet Pepsi's Head Bob, Bridgestone's Squirrel, E-Trade's baby, Bud Light's Caveman and others.

The Super Bowl Is Over, Christina Ricci Our New Obsession

christina_ricci_adage.jpg

OMFG! Finally, something not Super Bowl-related. When we head over to our fellow industry ad rag, Advertising Age (OK, it's far from a rag), we are usually in search of some specific article or reference that's been made. For some reason, early this morning, we headed directly to AgAge.com and were presented with one of their full page interstitial ads. We usually quickly click "Skip" (which, of course has some kind of built in delay forcing you to few the ad for about five seconds anyway) but at the sight of the deliciously captivating Christini Ricca lounging in the back of a limo reading Conde Nast's W, we became transfixed and couldn't turn away.

Bridgestone Fails to Dazzle, Pays God-Knows-What for Alice Cooper and Richard Simmons

rsimmonsforbridge.jpg

Don't get us wrong. Richard Simmons impressions are funny. Richard Simmons in the flesh is funnier still. How Bridgestone fucked up the formula we don't know, but we're guessing it probably had something to do with the mild shock we experienced from the squirrel ad, which it featured first.

Oh yeah, Alice Cooper's in this ad too.

Super Bowl Pre-Game Proves Highly Somber Joygasm Buzzkill

we_the_people.jpg

We don't normally pay much attention to pre-game shows, but we couldn't help noticing the impersonations of Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin gracing the screen alongside stars like Peyton Manning and superimposed images of the Constitution.

WTF? Propaganda much? Where's the party?

OMG! See Danica Patrick Expose Her Beaver!

danica_exposure.jpg

OK, we can totally understand why FOX didn't accept the "beaver" version of Danica Patrick's GoDaddy commercial. Paparazzi drooling over "beaver." "Celebrities" holding beavers in their laps. Danica cooing into the camera, "A domain name and a website from GoDaddy.com give me all the exposure I need so I can keep my beaver safe and out of site." Right. Like there's no double meaning there, Bob. Yawn.

Oh, and let's not forget the Candice Michelle version in which a doofus is too busy registering domain names to watch the game and his friend can't help but inject his sexual fantasies into the scenario. Hey Bob, we've got the perfect tagline for GoDaddy. Ready? Here it is. "GoDaddy Gets You Laid." Simple enough. After all, that is what you're trying to say, right?

Alicia Keys made a rousing appearance during the Super Bowl 2008 Pre-Game Show which the crowd appeared to enjoy. Nice. Safe. No wardrobe malfunctions. All good in the eyes of FOX and the NFL.

Today, Calvin Klein announced actress Eva Mendes will be comes the spokesperson for Calvin Klein Fragrances and will make her debut in the company's 2008 Fall campaign. We like.

Oops. Not the news Calvin Klein wants to hear. Eva just checked into the rehab facility Cirque Lodge, the same place Lindsay Lohan went for her troubles.

Debbie Gibson Launches Cattle Call for Acting Camp/Reality Show

deborah_gibson.jpg

Remember Debbie Gibson? You know, the one whose many hits include "Only in my Dreams" and "Electric Youth"?

We do, but just barely.

Here is an update on Debbie Gibson. To start with, you now have to call her "Deborah."

Anyway, Debbie Gibson is conducting scholarship auditions and a reality show taping for her pet project Camp Electric Youth (keep your volume down unless you want an electric deja vu attack). This is her performing arts summer camp for kids between seven and 17.

"I was the Hannah Montana of the '80s and I have a lot of experience and knowledge to offer today's aspiring performers," Debbie says. (Yeah. Like "you're never too young to start a career in reality TV.")

Three Babes Suck Justin Timberlake For Pepsi Stuff

justin_timberlake_pepsi_stuff.jpg

Fleshing out its copy point "every sip gets you closer," this BBDO NY-created Super Bowl commercial hurls Justin Timberlake through the air in response to three girls sipping their Pepsi's by the poolside. It's a simple message for Pepsi Stuff. The more you drink the more you win: Justin Timberlake MP3s, HDTVs, and millions of songs from Amazon.
