Unlikely Spokespersons

I couldn’t help but notice a strange trend in spokespersons for the most unlike products. Amy Sedaris has made a name for herself with goofy, off-color comedies yet she got picked up to endorse the new Downey Unstopables. From mean to clean, the actress formerly starring as a former boozer and prostitute now teaches domestic stay-at-homes how to brighten their shirts and skirts with the detergent that’s like a cheerleader on caffeine.

Equally surprising is Clairol’s decision to use Angela Kinsey to promote their Nice n’ Easy hair care products. Though the comedian made me laugh quite a lot with her role as a reserved, condescending, and cynical sales agent on The Office, her new role as the bright and sparkly hair expert seemed odd. She does a great job but I’m still dumbfounded by the casting agent’s choice to risk it with her, given her role on the office.
