When I’m not writing high prose for this site, I’m an internet marketing consultant, so for me to make a “What the hell’s a ‘beezid?” style joke would make me just completely out of touch with the current state of internet
scams auction sites.
That said, this site is about bad commercials and brother, let me tell you, beezid.com just upped the ante. Clearly all the money for the ad went to the “talent” because the thing looks like someone shot it on their iPhone.
Word has it that Lohan passed on the offer to do this commercial for $25,000, so the fact that she’s in it now means that they either gave her more money or she needed to pay her
dealer taxes rent liquor store bill agent.
It’s not that they paid over $25,000 for a commercial; commercials are fucking expensive to start with, so it’s no shock that they would have laid down some coin for all of this. Hell, while I was working at Kimberly-Clark, they actually flew a whole crew of people to Italy to shoot a paper towel commercial that involved a guy getting splattered with mud as a car drove by him on a country road. Sure, they could could have shot that in Burbank, CA for about half as much even with union dues, but the director wanted Italian mud.
Anyway, it’s not that they paid money for that, it’s that they gave money to Lohan as a reward for being nothing else besides a fuck up. I know that’s a thing now, but this shit has really got to stop. It was hard enough convincing kids to go to college when guys like Gates and Zuckerberg become billionaire drop outs, but now we’re just giving people money for not being able to hold their liquor.
