Hey guys, I saw this and just had to share it with everyone.
The actress Lindsay Lohan has sued E*Trade Financial Corp for $100 million, saying a "milkaholic" baby girl who appeared in a recent commercial was modeled after her.
Lohan alleged that online brokerage's use in the ad the girl, also named Lindsay, improperly invoked her "likeness, name, characterization, and personality" without permission, violating her right of privacy.
In her lawsuit filed Monday in a Nassau County, New York state court, the 23-year-old actress sought $50 million of compensatory damages and $50 million of exemplary damages. She also demanded that E*Trade stop running the ad and turn over all copies to her.
The New York Post reported the lawsuit earlier Tuesday. It said Ovadia maintained that Lohan has the same "single-name" recognition as celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Madonna.
In the ad, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend through a video chat for not calling her the night before because he was on E*Trade.
The camera switches to the girl, who asks suspiciously, "And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?"
It then switches back to the boy, who uneasily replies "Lindsay?" before another baby girl, presumably Lindsay, moves into the frame and asks, "Milk-a-what?"
A spokesman for Grey Group, which the Post said produced the E*Trade ad, told the newspaper the "Lindsay" in the ad was named after a member of its account team.
How CRAZY is she. She has always used her last name as far as I knew. I actually saw the add and thought it was cute. Lindsay Lohan didn't even come to mind.
What do you guys think?
