Earlier this week we got to see the the Heart of Glass music video that Gisele Bundchen released in conjunction with H&M for their new summer swimwear campaign. Today we get to see photos of Gisele in the new H&M summer ad campaign and as you can see in the gallery presented here, the supermodel is rocking these new summer looks right. This new line of summerwear will hit H&M stores worldwide shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this first look at the outfits as they look on Gisele‘s model-perfect body.
Gisele Bündchen is the star of H&M‘s new summer ad campaign and has recorded a cover of Blondie‘s iconic song Heart of Glass for the clothier. The music video for Gisele‘s Heart of Glass premiered earlier today on Good Morning America and the song can be downloaded for at iTunesHERE. All of the royalties from this song will go to UNICEF so if you like the track and you want to buy it, you will also be supporting a very good cause. The video is fun and Gisele‘s cover is decent but it’s clear that singing isn’t her strongest suit. Nonetheless, I can appreciate that H&M has come up with a clever way to market their summer line so, I’m not mad at this musical ad campaign at all. What say you? Do you like Gisele‘s cover of Heart of Glass?
While I wasted some time on Facebook today I came up on a really fantastic 80s commercial for Star Wars Underoos (thanks Tony) and loved it so much, I thought it would be fun to share for Throwback Thursday today. I used to LOVE wearing Underoos as a kid. In fact, it was my life’s mission from the ages of 8-10 to ONLY wear Underoos underwear. For those of you unfamiliar, Underoos were underwear sets (t-shirts and matching underwear) that were themed to look like super hero costumes (like Superman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman) or movie character outfits (like any character from Star Wars). Up until the invention of Underoos (and in all the years since, I might add), underwear used to be so boring. I used to wear my Batman Underoos around the house, pretending I was the caped crusader (with a towel tied around my neck since Underoos didn’t come with capes, unfortunately). The video above is a vintage commercial for Star Wars Underoos for both boys and girls. Click below to watch two more vintage commercials for Underoos. More »
The utterly and completely amazing Janelle Monaé has teamed up with Pepsi to record her own unique cover of David Bowie‘s classic song Heroes for use in the cola company’s #FUTBOLNOW campaign. The idea is to celebrate music and futbol (ie. soccer) with an ad campaign that features musicians and global futbol stars. Honestly, I’m not at a all a fan of professional soccer so I’m really only here for Janelle and her inventive take on Bowie‘s song. Click below to hear Janelle Monaé‘s cover of Heroes and see her cameo alongside a few futbol studs in a new commercial for Pepsi. More »
Late last year it was officially confirmed that actress Kristen Stewart was selected as the new face of Chanel‘s Métiers d’Art Paris Dallas collection. Today, we get our first look at K. Stew in the new Chanel ad campaign … which hasn’t been officially released just yet. Click thru the gallery here to see the photos that have, thus far, made their way to the Internets by way of one industrious Chanel fan on Instagram. As you can see, the ad campaign promo photos have a vintage Western vibe which is quite representative of Karl Lagerfeld‘s Métiers d’Art Paris Dallas haute couture cowgirl-inspired collection. Does this new Chanel campaign have you screaming Yee Haw or Hell Naw?
So, with the big blockbuster movie season nearly upon us, it’s about time that we start to see this year’s batch of commercial movie tie-ins. Thus far, we’ve seen movie tie-ins for cosmetics and kid’s clothing but today we get to see a new commercial for fast food chain Carl’s Jr. When I first learned that Mystique from X-Men would be featured in a Carl’s Jr. commercial for hamburgers, I scoffed at the seemingly terrible idea … and then I saw the commercial and now I love it. Haha. Even tho you probably think that the last thing Mystique would do is appear in a hamburger commercial, check out the video embedded above and you may have a change of heart. Who’s hungry?
Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow on HBO‘s Game of Thrones, has just been unveiled as the new face of Jimmy Choo Man, a new men’s fragrance due out in September. Citing his masculinity and sense of style, the creative director for Jimmy Choo explains why Harington has been selected as the celebrity spokesmodel for this men’s fragrance. The ad campaign for Jimmy Choo Man, starring Kit, won’t be unveiled until later this year but that should give his GoT fans something to look forward to as 2014 unfolds. More »
Beyoncé is featured in a new ad campaign for Toyota and as you can see, she is heavily featured in the just leaked international TV commercial for the car maker’s Get Going campaign. As you can see in the video embedded above, footage from Bey‘s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is used for the commercial … which likely means Bey had very little to do for this sponsorship deal other than lend her name and likeness and cash her fat check. Watch the video above and see if Beyoncé can sell you on buying a Toyota.
