CINDY CRAWFORD & CARSON KRESSLEY
[FOR DIET PEPSI]
Cindy Crawford first made her blipvert presence known with a sexy Diet Pepsi ad in which she was ogled more for her can of soda than for her can of bootie.
Now, many years down the road, she's still got it, but Cindy's the one doing the ogling. And she's not alone - every woman on the street is mesmerized by the young stud who's drinking the Diet Pepsi.
And it isn't only women - another Carson, this time Carson Kressley of 'Queer Eye For The Straight Guy' is also ensnared by the stud.
(I know I'm seeing the guy with a different eye than Kressley, but I just didn't pick up what elevated this Diet Pepsi chugger to be worthy of Lucky Vanous-level veneration. All I kept thinking was - Why the knit cap on such a warm, sunny day? Does he have greasy hair?)
Carson Kressley as the commercial's capper puts him in a tie with his fellow Fab Fiver Tom Filicia for blipverts under their belts. All of the 'Queer Eye' Guys are in an American Express ad and they've also appeared on the sitcom 'Good Morning, Miami' to insure that they are officially over-exposed. But only Filicia really had struck out on his own as a commercial figure, with his work for Pier One.
Maybe Kyan, Ted, and Jai could start hawking Ikea..........
