If you’ve got an oral fixation, this commercial is for you.
Miley made her lips, mouth and tongue famous with her antics and social media shots. Maybe, they’re even more famous than her. She should get an agent like hand and foot models.
The spot looks like it was shot in a strip club or dance club… take your pick. Miley wears her short blonde hair slicked back in a high-top fade. From there, she writhes and poses seductively.
The sexual innuendo is rife, but at least the proceeds from sales of lipstick and lip gloss will benefit the MAC AIDS fund.
Miley gets the job done, make no mistake about that.
Here’s what Viva Glam had to say about the spot, according to its Web site.
“Wham! Bam! VIVA GLAM! Superstar Miley Cyrus is ready to make noise as this iconic campaign’s 2015 spokesperson. The global pop phenomenon kicks off her VIVA GLAM with two surefire hits: a super-sexy hot pink Lipstick and matching Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer.”
“Wham! Bam!?” What did the cosmetics firm mean by that? Isn’t the next part, “Thank You, Ma’am?” As in quickie sex?
Whether you like the commercial or not, the move is a good one for Miley. She’s a little bit behind the curve when it comes to extending her brand.
Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna have already been there, done that and moved on to bigger deals. Miley did loads of product endorsements for Disney-related merch, but those deals vanished with her changing image.
While she’s yet to land a deal with, say, Versace, Miley still makes money from endorsements by loading up her videos with product placements.
Yep, she’s a rebel with a bank account.
