Lindsay Lohan is suing E-Trade over an ad that features a baby named “Lindsay”.
You’ve seen the ads, the baby is making stock trades and talking about it with his fellow baby friends. Well, in this particular ad–the only one of these I find really funny– the baby boy is video chatting with ostensibly his girlfriend who is complaining that he didn’t call her last night. He responds that he was up late trading.
The girlfriend then asks if “that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over” and a baby girl pops onto the screen saying “milkawhaaaaat?”
And so we’re supposed to believe that any reference to a girl named “Lindsay” is meant to make you think of that hasbeen, trashy actress who had one hit movie and decide to ride that fame to the usual Hollywood druggie/drinky/half-lesbian ending. She’s arguing that her name is like Cher or Madonna, first name is enough. Except the part where they were successful.
Best part is that Lohan feels she’s owed, wait for it, 100 million dollars damage for the commercial. Because the commercial has tarnished her good name, I guess. She’s not a milkaholic! She’s some other kind of holic! Pathetic. Video and story here.
