Another Star Singing for Shoes

Heroes star Hayden Panettiere has a music video for her song “Wake Up Call” and it is all over the internet today. It’s been met with much criticism. Rightfully so. The song sucks!

You can watch the video if you’d like. But I can save you the agony. There’s a barely legal, provocatively dressed girl singing a song that vaguely resembles that song by Paris Hilton “Stars Are Blind” and dancing what can only be described as choreography for Britney Spears post kid number two, pre nervous breakdown.

Thing is, it’s part of a Candie’s ad campaign. Panettiere is a spokesmodel for the shoe company. This is nothing like the Converse ad Anomaly did. They aren’t even showing the shoes in the video. I’ll buy a pair of Candie’s shoes if they come with the garauntee that she will never, ever, sing again.
