Kerry Low Low Diet Ad Parody Is… Actually A Diet Ad

Kerry Low Low Diet Ad Parody Is... Actually A Diet Ad

Like most everyone with eyeballs and a body, Irish cheese company Kerry Low Low is “sick of food advertising clichés.” They recently released a video parodying typical diet food ads geared toward women and–while it’s funny and accurate–it’s also a little suspect.

Courtney Love is on a roll lately, endorsement deal-wise.

So she did, Nicki style. To be honest, I think Nicki kind of phoned it in on this one (what, no monsters or cartoon Goth scenery?), maybe because Lady Gaga already made a crazy cinematic perfume ad and she didn’t want to be accused of copying her.
