Ashlee Simpson Is A Role Model For All Canadian Youth


What? You disagree with the headline? You don't think the 23 year old who had to have a shotgun wedding because her ambiguous boyfriend knocked her up is what every 7-14 year old Canadian youth should hope to become?

Well you are wrong, or at least Zellers thinks you are wrong. They have sunk almost $234 into a new back to school advertising campaign targeted at 7-14 year olds. For those of you not in Canada, Zellers is kind of like a low rent version of Target. Yeah, so like Wal-Mart. No offense of course to the fine people in Wal-Mart's legal office who read the blog everyday. But hey, be honest, when you get off work, you don't go to Wal-Mart either.

Although she did film commercials for the store, it also appears it is for the clothing line Request which, although not designed by Ashlee, was inspired by Ashlee. So, I'm guessing that means it is all knock offs and fakes and doesn't actually sing. Well, clothes don't sing, but you get the idea where I was going with that right? I know it's early, but work with me people.

I love that you described Pete Wentz as "ambiguous."

Zellers is owned still by the Hudson's Bay Co right? those idiots have no business spending $234M on anyhting, that company has got one foot in the grave!

and just so you know EL, Walmart is way better than Zellers up her anyday of the week. total budget.

I HATE that ad! Every time it comes on, I want to throw my TV out the window.

I won't, because it's new, and flat, but I want to.

I was watching that commercial last night and couldn't resist copying her fabulous poses. What a repretoire of stances!

Maybe it's just me but I think a better soundtrack for the commercial would have been Ru Paul's "Supermodel".
Hell, a better spokesperson would have been Ru.

Didn't her Wet Seal collection end up on the $3.99 rack?--I don't know any tweens who give a shit about her, so they should have saved their advertising budget.

Nature Girl said...

I was embarrased for Zellers the first time I saw that commercial.

Please.

Simpson is over 18 -- at least it's not Britney's little sis who's hawking the stuff.

Wasn't she a drunken mess at a Burger shop in Canada not too long ago with footage to prove it?

I hope you mean $234, as is less than $300, or about the price of an iphone (16mg), because it some store spend $234 MILLION on ads by asslee simpson, that place should be audited, cause someone's getting screwed over ROYALLY!!
