Avon U by Ungaro: Addendum

So Reese Witherspoon is not just 'The Face' of Avon - she is instead their 'Global Ambassador'. I suppose this is in the same way that Gary Lineker is the 'Global Ambassador' for Walkers crisps and the cute Labrador puppy is the 'Global Ambassador' for rolls of Andrex . . .

Anyhow, I must make amends . . . I wasn't paying attention when I first watched the Avon ad . . . I'd just painted a wall in the kitchen . . . and I think Reese was wearing pink . . . an important detail . . . also I completely missed the 'story'; she does not travel up to the roof-top in the elevator; it is the handsomely dishevelled gentlemen who is in the elevator and she is racing him to the top. They've probably got a bet on who can get there first . . . we've all done it . . . thing is Reese . . . if a Global, National, International, Worldwide cosmetic giant have made you climb the stairs, making you all puffed out and sweaty, then they're just not worth it. As I said before, you should have gone to L'Oreal . . . like everyone else . . .

Reese Witherspoon is a fine actress, but you were absolutely right to remain focused on the DIY while she was bounding up the stairs with her skirt hem in her hands. Do you think B&Q are looking for an ambassador? It might be worth applying if you've got the rump for it - that's the crucial shot in DIY commercials.

You are not wrong GB, rumps feature hugely in commercials . . . my own derriere may be too tiny . . .

***ponders which global conglomerate would benefit from a pert ass ***
Anyway , I have yet to see the add , but I am sure it was a 'body double' that did the stair bounding , while Miss witherspoon was transported on a gilded litter , bourne aloft by scantilly dressed muscular young men . I am sure they don't make the talent sweat .

Were the scantily dressed muscular young men having a break from the diet-coke ad?
I don't think it's an ad that you're going to notice Mr Beast . . . it's pretty dire. Poor Reese, left out by L'Oreal . . . the shame of it.

BEAST said...

Miss Scarlet , L'Oreal may be begging Miss witherspoon to join their hareem , but she may have decided it is better to be THE Global Ambassador for the trailer trash Avon brand rather than a bit part amongst a bevvy of beauties at suspiciously French sounding high fallutin L'Oreal

Scarlet! What a delightful child you are. I must be brief unfortunately. Your visit to cape to rio has brightened my day. I'm feeling just sublime. Please come round anytime, we'll share a Moscow Mule or two. I'm sorry I am in such a hurry but the nation's defence depends on it and I had to listen to some oaf on his cell phone to his girlfriend on the train this morning. It was very personal. I had no idea! In my day, we just passed each other lovehearts.
Pip pip.

Dr Maroon said...

Oh Christ, Beast. Please see my other comment at bananas site. I was only trying to be clever and failing awfully. Sorry mate.
gotta go.

scarlet-blue said...

Hello Dr Maroon! Don't let Mrs Pouncer catch you here. So what were the young people saying? Spill the beans. In my day we passed each other a rash and a tub of yoghurt . . .

scarlet-blue said...

Hi Beast, L'Oreal sounds high fallutin', but I don't reckon it is, Linda et al most definitely have Chanel . . . [or is that Channel?] slapped on their faces.

BEAST said...

Scarlet if you rememeber there was a bit of a fuss with the trading standards people as most of the make up artists working on the luxury brand adverts were actually using Boots No 7 as their tool of choice

BEAST said...

Dr Maroon ,
No problem with me, the put downs were jolly amusing and I responded in kind :-) .

scarlet-blue said...

I do vaguely remember . . . and because of the credit crunch I'm now a Boots no.7 girl . . . It's made not a jot of difference . . . other than I can now afford to buy food.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Maroon! Back to the Pump Room immediately. I don't want you ferreting around with ne'er-do-wells in the middle of your cure. Miss Scarlet, I have had to throw a cordon sanitaire around Maroon for the next week as he is on a strict regime of barium meals, betel nuts and licorice enemas. Please respect his quarantine.

scarlet-blue said...

But Mrs Pouncer, I've got some awfully good yoghurt going spare . . .

You like me?

Mrs Pouncer said...

Excuse me, Scarlet, but may I address Dr Maroon direct:
I sincerely hope that you are not referring to phone-sex in your comment above. What sort of depraved beast would engage in such a vile practice? It really is beyond reason. I can imagine nothing more foul than lying back and listening to graphic descriptions of inventive and mutually pleasurable carnality. I trust you restrained yourself from yelling helpful hints from the sidelines. CLdeM Pouncer

Dr Maroon said...

Excuse me Scarlet, you ain't seen me, right? Mrs Pouncer, talk is cheap, as they say, depending on your tarrif.

I walk the walk.

scarlet-blue said...

It is too early in the morning for me to have a ready quip for Mrs Pouncer and her handsome beau, Dr Maroon . . . But Mu Tai Dong . . . I like Bridport, I like chinese and I like plonkers . . . not so sure about football though!
