Did you see paris hilton's new Carl's JR Spicy BBQ burger commercial?

It's somewhat swimming related,
she's wearing a swim suit and there's water

From an advertisers stand point, that is a great commercial. That is definately going to hit there target market hard, though I think some of the message gets lost in the overall commercial content (I thought it was a car commercial), but now's the time to buy stock in that company.

From a swimmer's standpoint.....ummmm..yea. What I want to know is why you're looking at stuff like that Ande?;) :p

edit: (Im going to do a mini-study...would you help me out)Men how did you like that commercial? Are you tempted to go and buy a burger or get the car washed? Seriously I would like to know (I'm an advertising student), so if you dont' mind please PM me.

She reminds me of Tori Spelling. Both are extremely wealthy, but not attractive at all (face anyway).

Which makes it all the sadder that she has one ... she lives in a house in LA her parents bought for her and she came home once and had no electricity b/c she like didn't know you had to pay the bill ... AND worst of all she admitted all of this on Oprah! It takes a long time of not paying a bill before they cut off the electricity!

Jessica Sipmson is another story all together. I agree that she is smarter than people think but she has two things that Paris lacks, self respect and talent. Actually, make that three things, Jessica is FAR better looking.

You're treat right? I was thinking about coming to Chicago for school, it is the bastion of advertising after all. You just need to come to Idaho...(don't see Napolean Dynamite if you haven't because then you won't want to come).

As far as advertising, I still think it will be a successful campaign, but I think they are killing themselves slightly. Vampyre creativity~~when the ad is more memorable than the product being sold or the ad takes away from the advertisers message. So far you all have confirmed, that's exactly was going on. In case you were wondering, and thanx for the feedback.

Well in that case, come on down! I live about 45 minutes away from where it was filmed and the scenery is exactly the same. I can even show you the places where they shot it.

As for the pretty parts, that's the northern part in the pan handle(where I'm going to school next year) It's gorgeous. Lake Pend Oreille (sp) is a great place for open water swimming.

No worries about offending anyone....I hate it too.

The ad is definitely grabs attention, it's totally over the top,

we are bombarded with ads, to the point that we ignore them.
I don't think people will ignore this one.

Paris Hilton, in my personal opinion, has very few redeeming qualities... I really don't understand how she has garnered so much attention.

She is not that attractive (there may be a hint of sexiness to her mannerisms), and dumb as a stump, but for some reason the current reality show blitzes have many people swept up into stardom who would otherwise be ignored.

Ever seen Strange Love with Flavor Flav and Bridgitte Nielson (weird!)?

Now Brittany and Kevin Fedrline have a show? Chaotic? Please help us!

It's tough not to catch some of this junk just out of shear morbid curiosity.

By the way...give me Brooke Burke washing that Bently anyday!!!

Not really. This falls in the "Do you think she's prettier than me?" category - ANYTHING you say gets you in trouble. There are only 2 ways to deal with this, either:
1) Say nothing. Don't even react. Try not to breathe. Pray you'll have a heart attack and die.
2) Diss the other women completely: "That skank? She's got enough makeup on to paint all the revolutionary slogans on the walls in Tijuana." (Tip: No sarcasm allowed, eg: "That skank? Just because she's rich and thin and beautiful, why would any sane man want to tangle with that.")

What a pretty thing to believe. Here's the truth:
Does this make me look fat?
NO.
Are you sure?
YES.
How come you never said that before?
Said what?
That I wasn't fat.
I didn't think it needed to be said.
So you can take me for granted now.
I'm not taking you for granted.
Did you even tell Keather she was fat?
No, of course not, she's not fat.
Oh, so you've noticed that she's buff.
No, I mean yes. No. I mean, what does it matter?
Oh, so I don't matter any more?
What?

So I'm really really sorry that I always never said that you were fat and it will always never happen again.

You guys, that one is really easy to answer.
Every girl wants to be your one and only princess... Just lie to us and tell us you were focusing on ME, and didn't even notice the other one.
And when we ask, do theese pants make me look fat... just say, sorry honey, I haven't noticed anything other than ... you're so beatiful, all the blood is gone out of my head.

Strike ONE, you're better off digressing into giving her a compliment, saying, honey youre so beatiful, You and FAT never cross my mind as connected. I'm just your typical silly guy, not pointing out enough how beautiful you are, I should do that more.
Then come over and hug her.
Does this make me look fat is usually a fishning expedition for a compliment and some attention. Can't believe you guys haven't figured that one out. :rolleyes:

So you can take me for granted now.
I'm not taking you for granted.
Did you even tell Keather she was fat?
No, of course not, she's not fat.

Strike TWO, never admit to noticing another girl!!!
We know you notice, we just don't wanna know - ya know.

Oh, so you've noticed that she's buff.
No, I mean yes. No. I mean, what does it matter?

Which brings me to another point... why do some women wear clothes that they have no business wearing. Like trying to stuff 10 lbs of potatoes into a 5 lb. sack. Men, I know are guilty of the same things. But...

I saw a fairly plus size lady in Wal Mart (that's where you'll usually see many a clothing faux pas) She had on a tube top and low rise jeans -

I have a cool wife - she tells me that she can appreciate a pretty woman and frequently point them out to me! I love her!

I don't mind it much when a guy looks, well, as long as it's a glance. I know guys look. Now if he waqs gawking or flirting with her, i'd think it's rude.

I explained this to one of my guy friends, it's not the looking or noticing other women that is really bothersome, it's when we feel neglected at home, and then see or catch you doing what seems like you spending your efforts elsewhere that becomes an issue.

You her enough about how guys want to spread it around, and how they'll get bored of you eventually etc.. Then when there's not attention or affection at home, and you see hi notice something or someoneelse that you think I guess it's that time.

Or, the way somew guys do it, you end up feeling like you have to compete with whatever else they're noticing.
Not all guys do that.

Like the comment you made, about appreciating your wife, well, when you know and feel secure that he's not out there looking with ulterior motives, then it's easy to notice and comment, cause you don't end up feeling threathened.

okay... how did this turn into a serious dating/relationship advice column all of a sudden ;)

Second, why do you have granny daisy duke pictures??? That just aint right

As for Paris, I have to say that I have always thought she was overrated..... but that is one hot commercial. I think it would be even better with the US olympic women's swim team.... Heck it would be better with the "Writers of As the Swimming World Turns" team!

I don't care to see where the humerus connects to the radius and ulna! Anyone else?

Don't these women know that men like meat; dogs like bones!

Yeah, that was probably her meal for the week :)

Don't know for sure, but often people with anorexic- bulimic type behaviors often "purge" after a big meal...
....not to be confused with some masters swimmers after a 1650 free...

Actually bulimia and anorexia are more complicated than that. Typically people think of bulimics as bingers and purgers and anorexics as non-eaters. In reality usually someone with that type of eating disorder exhibits both behaviors. Bulmics tend not to be "anorexically" thin since many of the nutrients and calories are absorbed before they purge. Anorexia is defined more by weight than by eating habits as most anoreixs will binge and purge from time to time ... does that make sense?

One time in college I binged on beer. Then I purged. Does that make me a bulimic?

OK, it actually happened more than once.

No that would be a sign of alcoholism ... or someone who knows how to have a good time ;) ... how many times did you SWEAR you'd never do it again?



On the whole not breathing thing... I did it in gymnastics, too. It was fine on bars and vault, on floor I'd be getting ready for my last tumbling pass gasping for air.

Karen maybe we are related!

Maybe not breathing when concentrating really, really hard is a Special K function...perhaps, over the past few weeks the 'K's' have been keeling over at their computers whilst keeping up their prolific posting patter 'cause they forgot to breathe...

three:o

On the bulimia/anarexia thing, sometimes anoreixs don't eat and still purge. While Paris is very thin, I don't think she's anorexically thin. Now Lindsey Lohan and Nicole Richy, I would be worried about them, they are both looking gauntly as of late. I think it's important to remember too that these are as much mental diseases as they are physical and that young boys can be affected too. *stepping off my soap box*

What's the deal with Lindsey Lohan? I heard she was bleaching her skin and I saw a picture of her sometime recently and she had blonde hair.

She was so hot as a red head when she was just making a name for herself, but she's becoming freakish.

I sometimes hold my breathe when I'm thinking really hard when I'm frustrated (purely on purpose I assure you), but then I get even more frustrated when I start breathing again b/c I'm usually dizzy. Maybe I need to find a new tactic?:p

I don't like her as a blonde. Especially after she made such a big deal about being a natural red head and never wanting to change that and blah blah blah.

Lindsay Lohan looks disgusting as of late, very emaciated and that is NOT a good look ... the blond is terrible. She looks better with a little meat on her bones (really who doesn't) and as a red head... of course brunettes have the most fun! ;)

Kyra, let that goddess out!

Agreed brunettes are the best!

Great - a Special K shopping trip....this isn't limited to Special Ks either! Anyone is welcome. That and the cocktail hour...or hours....!!

I will teach you to walk in heels with a damn book on your head too!!

I believe in equal opportunity... brunettes, blondes, red heads... whatever floats your boat

But what do people see in collagen or botox? Every time I see an actress that just got her lips done or a botox injection, she looks ridiculous. Sometimes down right scary. I don't get it.

Rudy - duck lips look awful! Check out that website when you have a chance; it's hilarious.

Seriously though - I am really looking forward to meeting everyone on this board so if you're going to worlds in '06 let's make sure we all hook up. It's great putting a face with a name and meeting new friends in person. Parties galore!!

Fishgrrl -

That sight is hilarious. Sickening too. :eek: I can't believe these people do that to themselves. And they think it's attractive. There's obviously some serious drug usage going on. You'd have to be whacked out to think that that is attractive.

Poolmonkey - I know!! I've been tempted myself to consume a few of those drugs...LOL! But then I'd be off to the surgeon's office to have my lips injected....scary....

Sounds like a fun drinking game...!! But lessons first...with a book...no slouching!!

I forgot Seagurl is underage, so of course her lessons would not include alcohol. She is the designated driver.

George- my brother's friend is a boy....and my other friend (also a boy) can do the running man in heels whereas I can barely stand.

I'll get injured in heels without getting tipsy first. I tend to fall alot anyway, heels make it worse and when I'm tipsy I can't even sit in a chair without falling over. (pretend I didnt' just tell you that) I have almost twisted my ankle multiple times falling off flip-flops. (Kari you have your work cut out for you)

Thanks for reminding me about no slouching...I'll have to work on that so I can show so improvement at worlds before I begin serious training.:p

I have no problem with being the designated driver/babysitter. :D

Michael, do you ever lie in bed and night and think I'm just not good enough to play in the NBA.

Not really Stewart.

Michael, Da Nile ain't just a river in Egypt.

Michael look in the mirror and repeat after me, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggoneit people like me."

Don't usually watch PTI. Can't stand those guys. In fact, the whole ESPN thing is growing old on me. When I first watched it, it was all about sports highlites. But the last 10 years - the last 5 in particular - became more and more about entertainment and self promotion. I don't watch it much at all anymore.

Kornheiser & wilbon aare probably two of the best sports writers. The Washington Post is an excellent sports section.

Scansy
May 28th, 2005, 02:39 PM
It's not Kornheiser and Wilbon specifically. It's just the whole approach of ESPN. It's kind of like MTV going away from videos and music. Just give me sports. Show repeats of lots of games. I don't want original programming from ESPN.

I am probably in the minority though.
