So, okay. A new E*Trade commercial has that day-trading baby two-timing a couple of girl babies. The one who is supposed to be his girlfriend (weird?) wants to know where he was last night, and doesn’t buy that he got busy “diversifying [his] portfolio.” She suggests he was banging “that milk-a-holic Lindsay.” Said milk-a-holic, who sort of has red hair, then pops on the screen all indignantly. And Lindsay Lohan is claiming this is supposed to be her, and wants the spots pulled and $100 million.

Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna. “Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit,” Ovadia said. “They used the name Lindsay,” Ovadia said. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.” Ovadia wants an injunction to force the spot off the air, and the Lindsay camp wants every last copy of the commercial.

On the one hand, sounds like someone’s being a little paranoid. On the other? Yeah, it’s definitely supposed to be her. And she does need the money.

    Lindsay’s gotta tone down the crazy; regardless, it will forever move.

    oh, that’s definitely her.

    milk-a-what? She should be embarassed to have thought about it as anything else but free PR. After all, when was the last time Lindsay Lohan was associated with a man, or with drinking milk?

    Oh, Lindsey, I have an alternative stream ready for you…

    @2 too bad she looks nothing like that anymore.

    @4 she hasn’t been a lesbian for months, actually.

    @7 that was the best line.

    5,

    Agreed. And those freckles make her look like a Pollock painting, FWIW.

    I suppose I could see the point and/or relevance if it was in a Coke ad

    diaper rash = fire crotch? somehow i do not think so

  13. Posted by Anal_yst | March 9, 2010 at 12:21 PM

    Uh, this lawsuit is just piggybacking on/adding to the free PR, plus, they might throw her a few dimes just to shut her the f*ck up (for now).

    Anal_yst, what are your thoughts on Ms. Lohan’s fire snatch?

    Does the carpet match the drapes, or is it hardwood floors throughout?

    @BL have you been hanging out at the Griffin residence? how do you know what KG’s kid looks like?

  18. Posted by NakedShort | March 9, 2010 at 12:26 PM

    @16 with redheads the carpet always matches the pubes

  19. Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2010 at 12:28 PM

    Yeah, she’s a milk-a-holic, that is her problem. Or maybe another white substance.

    @ 10- Oh, it was

  21. Posted by volatilitysmile | March 9, 2010 at 12:39 PM

    @6 -ok, reading comprehension – how is not being associated with men equal to being a Portia deRossi? I could give you options to consider in between but NSFW (An egret or an equus being but two avenues).

    All this publicity for a shitty broker. What a waste.

    @19 – Flour, baking soda, whip cream, white chocolate, clouds, snow, socks, US President’s before Obama…sounds like she has a lot of problems.

  25. Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2010 at 12:53 PM

    why didn’t they use the name Maria?

    too bad, you do sound like a homo

    And all this time I thought it was a play on former Piston’s guard Lindsey Hunter

    @24/CL whipped cream is definitely not something I’d call a “problem”, no matter how much she uses

    @VS. I enjoyed that link.

    I was out last weekend and heard someone order a round of Lindsay Lohan shots. A red headed slut with a splash of coke

  36. Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2010 at 1:22 PM

    @36 I could go for one of those right about now.

    Dear Geek-Squad, thank you for your prompt response to my call. And yes, as soon as someone loses the clowns who got us into this cluster, we’ll go on the maintenance agreement.

    Are they going to bring back the little brown baby to defend him? “If the diaper doesn’t fit …”

    i didn’t even realize lindsay lohan was still alive until this lawsuit

  44. Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2010 at 5:19 PM

    who on her crew looked at a slutty baby who loves the white stuff and said “oh yeah thats definately Lindsey”

  45. Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2010 at 5:32 PM

    Who is this slut?
    Paris

  46. Posted by StillNotNasser | March 10, 2010 at 11:12 AM

    Why didn’t they use Susan?

    Oerhans because Susan Boyle is new to the whole celebrity thing and might not have known that you’re supposed to sue for stupid reasons???

  47. Posted by Ofcourse | March 10, 2010 at 1:04 PM

    An infamous redhead Hollywood girl makes a spoof date video calling herself a “shopoholic and alcoholic” and then an ad agency makes a superbowl commercial looking to create a huge buzz has a “milkaholic” RED haired baby that happens to be named Lindsay in it. Random name? puhleez. Random girl baby, don’t think so. The law suit, Dina’s idea, is ridiculous but many people saw the connection to Lindsay Lohan when it aired. It’s not about the name Lindsay, it’s about the context and characterization.

  48. Posted by mikey | March 10, 2010 at 2:06 PM

    this is ridiculous. Anthony Michael Hall isn’t suing E-Trade for using his baby likeness in the ad!

  49. Posted by Susan | March 10, 2010 at 3:29 PM

    how dare you dirty my name Ms. Ovadia. you will be hearing from my lawyers. I mean come on, just like my name Susan, there is no other Lindsay in the world, just this nutcase. And its not the Lindsay part that is the household name, its the pantiless alcoholic Lohan name that is the “household name” like Oprah.

    /not really Susan, just making a point
    //Lohan is still a slut
    ///that is when she is not passed out from a bender

    Oh my goodness. Lindsey, it is time to get a real job and become a human being. Personally, I found the Etrade ad disturbing on a number of fronts, and really folks, do you have to use sex and babies to sell stock trades? Just a tacky ad. But really Lindsy, they probably did use Lindsey intentionally, but should you perhaps look in the mirror and think, “Wow, I am now a by-word of addict and tart, maybe the something wrong isn’t ETRade its me.”

    I have 50+ blogs in my RSS reader. Over 90% of them offer a full-feed RSS.I do read more blog posts than news items, with most news items gtneitg just a look at the headline. If that doesn’t interest me, I skip it. Blogs are similar, but I tend to read the majority of blog posts in my reader. I would say that I at least skim through 90% of blog posts, and I thoroughly read maybe half of those.If the blog does not have a full-feed RSS, I usually don’t subscribe. I have only a handful of sites in my reader that do not offer a full-feed. Of those that don’t offer a full-feed, I probably only go to the actual blog to read content 25% of the time.While it’s frustrating to not get visits to your website I frequently have more feed subscribers than I have daily visits to my blog those are readers you would not otherwise have. At least if they have you in their reader, you have a shot at gtneitg their attention. If you’re not in their reader, they are more likely to forget about you. It’s rare that I visit a blog (except for new blogs) that I am not also subscribed to in my reader. I may not visit as often, but I possibly wouldn’t visit at all if they are not in my reader and I forget about them!dcr’s last blog post..
