Angelica Huston Still Talks to the Dead

As Mother prepares to hand over the Orange Gold ad duties to Fallon, they make one more attempt to boost the brand. Brand Republic posted the spot for our viewing pleasure.

(Sorry I’m at meetings all day at a building with limited internet access so I’ll post the vid later but you can check it out at this link: http://link.brightcove.com/services/link/bcpid1600158116/bctid1770059497)

The basic idea of the commercial is Huston pitching a scary movie that the Orange Gold folks want to make a little less scary by offering people Orang phones. Check out the guys mocking Huston at the end of the spot. Hasn’t she had a hard enough career? It’s really a half hearted attempt. Not funny, not memorable.
