Did y’all watch the Super Bowl? Wait, let me get more specific. Did y’all watch the Super Bowl commercials?
Remember this one?
That baby, he’s so cute and clever and good with money. And what a player! Milk-a-holic, isn’t that adorable, because they are babies, see, they aren’t old enough to drink; and it’s a derogatory statement towards that little 8-month-old Lindsey baby who is obviously a dirty boyfriend stealer. Calling her a whore would be crossing some sort of line, I think. That’s why the ad agency made the choice to call her a milk-a-holic instead.
Let’s just laugh together for a moment over this super cute ad while E-Trade’s ad agency reps roll around naked in piles of money.
Now, what are your thoughts right now? Are you thinking about Lindsey Lohan?
That’s right, according to US Weekly, (because where else do you get news?) Lohan is fixin’ to sue E-Trade $100 million for using her name in this commercial. The one in which two babies fight over another baby. And one baby happens to be named Lindsey.
From the article:
“Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit,” Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said in a statement to the New York Post. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
Really? Everybody? And by everybody, does she mean the small sphere of flunkies and paid friends with whom she spends her time?
I find the fact that the lawyer said it was a “parody of her life” more disturbing than the same name aspect. Basically, Lohan is admitting that she’s an alcoholic man stealer; that the above commercial reflects her life accurately enough that it would be infringing on her image. Really? Three babies are ruining your image. Enough so that you need $1 million for retribution from, what? Lost income? From the roles you lost because E-Trade was making fun of you? Because this whole, “Lindsey Lohan is an alcoholic slut” angle hasn’t already been beaten to death in the media over the past three years. I mean this lawsuit is coming from a person who has been arrested and been in rehab many times. The damage has been done, sister. Lindsey Lohan hasn’t worked since 2006, but somehow has found all kinds of cash to buy drugs and booze and life the high life (PUN INTENDED). Wait — maybe that’s why she’s suing.
