Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the worst television commercial ever. Packed with bad acting, corny Hip hop music and even a random cameo from a basketball player, it’s pretty clear this ad is a mess.
But while all of this is poorly executed, the idea behind Auto Spa Bistro does have some potential. No one likes to sit around for two hours waiting for their car to get cleaned. Obviously if food is involved, people WOULD be interested.
Had they got someone rich and suave like Mad Men‘s Don Draper (aka Jon Hamm) to get involved, the place would have been much more marketable. But from the looks of this low budget commercial, I think it’s very possible they just didn’t have the money to hire him.
If you ignore all the nasty tweets, break ups and publicized feuds with just about every other rapper, 50 Cent is such a humanitarian!
Fiddy created a campaign where he will feed one hungry child every time an individual ‘likes’ the Street King energy drink Facebook page. I’m not exactly sure exactly how he plans on feeding said child but hey, it’s the thought that counts!
His goal is to feed one million a week. So far, over 69,000 meals have been provided and there’s just 6 days left to reach a milli.
50 is in fact an excellent business man. He’s gone some outstanding work for numerous projects ranging from beverages to clothing . His new ad for the “feed one million” campaign posted below, is pretty convincing. If I don’t buy a drink he’ll totally knock me out! Maybe this is another reason why he’s so successful not only in music but business too.
Outkast rapper Big Boi is launching a kids record label with his daughter, Billboard reports.
The rapper says he and his 16-year-old daughter, Jordan, have formed Purple Kidz, a new record label that will launch in the coming weeks. The label will feature younger artists but will target fans of all ages.
“My daughter just turned 16 years old, and you can see it on MTV’s ['My Super Sweet Sixteen'], where they get cars, and things that depreciate and just don’t mean nothing,” says Big Boi. “I wanted to give my child something that she can grow and build and nurture. So I gave her her own label.”
Big Boi, 36, says that Purple Kidz’ first signee is Gabbie Rae, a 12-year-old singing prodigy who has appeared on ‘The Tyra Banks Show.’
The rapper, who already heads the Purple Ribbon All-Stars hip-hop label, says that he and Jordan are the sole partners on the new imprint.
As for Big Boi’s solo career, he says that all is running smoothly as he continues working on the follow-up to last year’s ‘Sir Lucius Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty.’
“I had a conversation with Barry Weiss, and he was like, ‘Hey Big, great album,’ and he’s ready for the next album,” says Big Boi. “And he wants it ASAP. So, you know, everything’s good.”
I actually think gifting his daughter with a record label is a really sweet gesture. Sure, she is probably spoiled to death, but he seems to be implying hard work on her. She will have to maintain the label and nurture it, as opposed to her just being a singer or model or whatever. I’m guessing she has a huge passion for music, so this path will be a good one for her.
You have heard us talk about it before, but believe it or not, it’s really hard making a buck in the music business. In order to survive, you need to diversify your business and have multiple revenue streams. One artist doing that very well is Taio Cruz. Amazing songwriter, amazing singer, and it turns out he’s an amazing brand.
American Idol judge Simon Cowell and Sir Phillip Green, owner of Topshop clothing stores, have teamed up to form a global entertainment super-company. Model Kate Moss has been asked to be the director of style and image for the company, which hopes to rival the other big name brands in television and fashion.
“Kate has been signed as a figurehead and style setter for the fashion end of the business,” said a source. “She will bring her expertise to the table, advising on all branding and style for clothes, hair and accessories. Something that has also been talked about is Kate developing her own singing career and starting a music label.”
Since signing on to the still unnamed company, Moss has doubled her net-worth to $100 million.
