Paris Hilton Bombs As Product Endorser

Paris Hilton Bombs As Product Endorser

By Robert Paul Reyes


"PARIS Hilton was paid vast sums to pose naked in gold body paint for a canned bubbly - but it looks as though the billion-heir has lost her fizz.

The huge promotion for Rich Prosecco - a sparkling wine in a can - has failed to take off, with reports that thousands of cases of the Austrian brew has sitting in warehouses around the world.",22049,25328029-5001026,00.html

Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan were flashing their nether regions to the paparazzi when Britney Spears was still claiming to be a born again Christian. With pics of Hilton`s goodies all over the Web, a commercial featuring Paris posing naked in gold body paint isn`t going to cause much of a stir.

The Aussies don`t seem to realize that Paris Hilton is good for a few laughs, but nobody is going to take her seriously as a product endorser. I`m not surprised that the product Hilton is shilling for tanked big time.

The owner of the sparkling wine defends his selection of Paris Hilton to hawk his product: "She is the perfect advert for our product."

I have to agree with the gentleman, there is nothing more ridiculous than a sparkling wine in a can, and only Paris can do justice to such a stupid product.
