Oh, Brenda Walsh, what have you done?
We have no issues with actors signing on for commercials, but we do expect a little discrimination in the brands they choose to endorse. And “90210” vet Shannen Doherty just signed on with one of the cheesiest late-night commercial series in recent memory.
Education Connection, best known for ads featuring white girls rapping and espousing the glory of going to school in pajamas, recently signed Doherty as a spokeswoman, and her first spots have arrived.
Apparently, the 40-year-old actually used the service herself. “I’m actually getting my degree in Liberal Arts,” she opens. “Online!”
The commercial then cuts to Doherty in animated scenarios as an executive, a chef, a nurse, a detective and a… flapper girl. You know, college stuff!
It’s fantastically horrible, but we’re already holding our breath for the follow up when she breaks into song…
