Just remembered, I have fallen foul of the 'celebrity endorsement,' once ... when I was about 16/17.
I lived on TAB for about a year after watching a then unknown Elle McPherson come out of the surf and not do a panicked scramble for her beach towel.
First time, last time. And the product worked. I was divinely thin, a bit of my hair fell out from malnutrition but there's always a compromise, right? - Gee
Don't watch ads but I saw the big photo of Brad Pitt at the perfume counter in David Jones and wondered what he was doing there LOL - Rhoda
So true Carole/m, and wasn't it nice to know that Gina was in Parliament with all the 'rent-a-crowd' on Thursday night to cheer on Rupert's boy Tony.

Couldn't agree more. Has no effect on my spending at all. Nicole Kidman please! - Antonia

A small dose of humility , less arrogance and some consideration for those less well off might help . I won't be holding my breath waiting . - Carole/m
