“Actress”, “Model”, and all-around “classy” gal Lindsay Lohan is back in the news today. My guess is, reality finally struck Ms. Lohan and she realized no one was willing to pay her anymore for doing absolutely nothing. So naturally, she’s moved on to the next easiest way to never work a day in her life, a lawsuit. Lindsay Lohan is suing E-Trade for $100 million claiming they modeled a character in their latest commercial after her.
The New York Post says:
The ad — part of a series starring babies who play the stock market — features a boy apologizing to his girlfriend via video chat for not calling her the night before.
“And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over?” the baby girl asks him suspiciously.
“Lindsay?” the boy replies, just before a baby girl sticks her head into the frame and slurs, “Milk-a-what?”
Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna.
“Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit,” Ovadia said.
“They used the name Lindsay,” Ovadia said. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
Wow. I can actually thank Lindsay and her lawyer….I don’t even have to try to write anything else after this point. There’s absolutely nothing I could come up with that would be more entertaining or ridiculous than the above. If you haven’t seen the commercial, turn on your tv once in awhile and/or check it out below.
