Okay. Please help me understand the reason for the furor over Paris Hilton's Carl's Jr. commercial. I saw it. She's washing a car in a bathing suit. Getting herself wet with the soapy water and sponge. Blah blah. No big whup. It's not like she is wearing anything MUCH DIFFERENT than what she usually wears when she goes out. And seriously, when has La Hilton ever WASHED a car herself? I SO can't wait for Paris' 15 minutes to end.
Give me a break. All those religious nutbags and parental groups calling her commercial akin to softcore porn need to really check out the Spice Channel or flip through the pages of Playboy or something. Because that's some real softcore, knowutimsayin? Aww yeah.
Ahem. I digress. Anyway, yeah, the commercial is racy, but a) it's not like it's all that erotic, and b) it's not like they show it in between segments of Blue's Clues or Dora the Explorer.
And while we're on the subject of pop culture, can I just say that the whole Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes lovefest on Oprah the other day was just ... weird? Is it just me? Not the fact that she's 16 years his junior (Jah knows I've dated men much older than I), but the fact that Tom Cruise had to CHASE HER AROUND BACKSTAGE to get her to come out in front of everyone. We're talking steadycam shot, Tom running around backstage, no hurky-jerky handheld-cam shots anywhere - you know ... it was all so extemporaneous and off the cuff! (Smell the sarcasm?)
I mean, am I the only one who thinks the whole thing is trite? Banal? Suspiciously close to both of their movies that open next month?
