Random Pop Culture Rant

Okay, so I came across this article today about Lindsay Lohan suing E-Trade for $100 million big ones over this HA-larious commercial that first aired during the Super Bowl:

Seriously? It's not like she's a Madonna... or a Beyonce... or even a Pee-wee Herman. If one of those names were used, the whole country would know without question whom it was about. To be honest, when I saw this commercial I laughed, and didn't give Lindsay Lohan a second thought (or first thought for that matter).

So, now it's time to play a game called: What's the MOTIVE behind the craziness?

Possibility #1 - Is she strapped for cash and looking for some quick dough?

Possibility #2 - Does she have documentation to prove that every Lindsay reference in the world is directed at her?

Possibility #3 - Underneath her exterior, is she actually a milkaholic, boyfriend stealing baby... and her dubious cover is blown?

Possibility #4 (Conspiracy Theory Twist) - Is it a big publicity stunt for all the players involved?

Possibility #5 (Conspiracy Theory Twist Two) - Have aliens infiltrated Hollywood?

Possibility #6 - Ummm... who cares?

The debate is open. Tell me, do you have a conspiracy theory of your own? Are you on team Lohan, team E-Trade, or team who cares? Inquiring minds want to know...

I'm going with the aliens infiltrating Hollywood. :)

Why would Lohan think that referred to her in some way? She has got to have one humungous ego!!

Aliens have definitely infiltrated Hollywood. That's the only way to explain the rumor I heard that they want to do a remake of the Wizard of Oz.

On the Lohan front. Even though I had seen this commercial a few times I had to watch the clip again because I couldn't remember any reference to Lindsay Lohan. Then I watched and realized that there wasn't. I wonder if there was anyone besides her that made this assumption about the commercial.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees how absurd this is!

JennyMac - Paranoia is definitely a good theory!

I've seen that ad a million times and thought it was hilarious. And when you said LL was suing, I couldn't even think about why.

I think this brings up the issue of pointless sueing. All those people who sue based on the most tenuous connection ever.

I agree, Claire! Some people are sue-happy... they'll grasp at any possible lawsuit (however ridiculous it may be) for the chance to make some money or get some attention. Crazy McCrazy is all I have to say.

And that add is hilarious - how could you not love it? Even if your name is Lindsay...

Ha, I can't believe she's even suing E-Trade. Lindsay's such a common name, and she apparently thinks that all Lindsay references means her? But hey, maybe they did mean her...

Thanks for the amusing post! :D

Lea - glad you were amused by it! I couldn't let the craziness slip by without putting up a post about it. :)
