Ad Man Markets Daughter’s Pittsburgh Steelers YouTube Song

In this day and age of a zillion would-be YouTube stars, it helps to have an edge. For 14-year-old LA based singer-actress Keely Marshall, who has made waves singing the national anthem at various sporting events, the YouTube edge is dad Kevin Marshall, head of Marshall Advertising in Tampa, Florida and an avowed Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

After Keely recorded a twangy ode to the Steelers, “Drive for 7,” dad went to work, posting links on various Steelers-related web pages and blasting out a press release, even though the video at press time is at a modest 12,500 views:

MySpace and PayPal: Give Money To The Cheerleader, Save The World (Or At Least The Whales)

m_14e1acb9f34fa6e359c4943f033d7c06.jpg MySpace and PayPal have teamed up to create “donation widgets” that will allow the same people who hit your page up for drunken pictures of your ‘neathage to contribute to Breast Cancer Research funds. Or something like that.

To inspire the masses, MySpace and PayPal have enlisted a coterie of young things: Hayden Panettiere, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff and Vanessa Hudgens.

33562141-01084927.jpgJoke’s On Us: LAT does another one of its picture-book thingies, this one focusing on pranks done by and to celebrities. We don’t want to split hairs (especially since they were so kind as to include two photos of George Clooney), but that Bill Gates pie incident was more of political protest than a prank. Anyhoo, enjoy.

Maybe it’s the late-night daddy duty new father and Details editor-in-chief Dan Peres is pulling, but we’re seeing some inconsistency. To wit: A mere page before the letters to the editor hailing the mag for its cautionary December article, “Are You Raising a Douchebag?” Peres pulls rank in his own March 2008 Letter From the Editor, describing a teen girl-laden Jonas Brothers run-in during a recent morning-show appearance:
