I was driving in to work this morning. Kevin and Bean on KROQ were raving about this new Internet fanned obsession about an actress named Mandy Amano. Mandy appeared in a Pepsi commercial during Superbowl 2005. Immediately following, a blog dedicated to Mandy began to appear on the net.
So I looked it up: http://thatpepsigirl.blogspot.com
I must admit: She is gorgeous.
How the heck did this interent frenzy start? Her on screen time was, what, 5 seconds? This is amazing...
And speaking of ads, how in the heck does three seconds of a Pepsi ad get a girl her own fan blog and subsequent radio interviews and Maxim spread? But at least it's not a blog about this Pepsi girl.
How much must it suck to be the other girl in the Pepsi/Itunes commercial? You know. The one who isn't Mandy Amano.
Dear Other Girl:
Please don't take it personally that you had approximately 4 seconds more of screen time and were unable to capitalize on it. Fame, she is a fickle bitch.
Haha. And for the record, Mandy had around 13 seconds of screen time from the two ads combined.
In other news, AdRants has a nice little write up about Mandy's rise to internet, print and radio fame.
