Linds-a-who?

Remember that E-Trade commercial from the Super Bowl, where the baby girl tells the baby boy she doesn’t approve of  “Lindsay, the Milkaholic,” and then baby Lindsay suddenly appears on the screen, saying, “Milk-a-what?!”
Well, Lindsay Lohan thinks she’s the only Linsday in the world (the name has been in the top 500 for, like, decades), because she’s suing E-trade for $100 million (!!!), claiming the commercial is poking fun at her:

“They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”

Seriously?! Lindsay Lohan NEVER once crossed my mind when watching that commercial, which I’ve seen probably 8 or 9 times since the Super Bowl. Just because you’ve made an ass of yourself, Linsday, doesn’t mean anyone cares enough about you to make a commercial demeaning you. Get over yourself.

  1. who’s the ‘everybody’ that’s talking about it. i haven’t heard her name mentioned in months, and WHO CARES?!

    but i see what you’re saying, Linds, if they had used the name ‘Susan’ i bet Susan Boyle would be making the same complaints right about now

  2. Well Lindsey isnt making money cause well, she isnt making any movies. She’s gotta get the money to support her shopping spree. Especially since she missed her flight to the Austrian opera ball and her big pay day because she was shopping at the airport.

  3. @ Dora, this cracked me up.

    Personally, I couldn’t even remember the name from the commercial, I just remeber the punch like “milk-a-what?” and the commercial still makes me crack up.

    Also, on as serious a note as this deserves, wasn’t the baby “playing Lindsay” a brunett/dirty blond? If she was a red head (or even a freckled bleached blonde) then MAYBE Lindsay would have half a leg to stand on. And to be honest, that would have been awesome. Saturday Night Live spoofs celebs all the time, why are the eTrade babies so sacred to Lindsay?

    BTW, if were speaking topically, as Kate points out-what’s LL do lately??- a much more topical (and sane) Lindsay, is Lindsey Vonn. Lohan has a guilty conscience…

  4. Here’s the commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEXZ2hfD3bU

    She was just blonde, with big cheeks, as far as I can tell. No resemblance to LL at all. Face it, the world is SO over LL. haha.

  5. Also, who thinks of Lindsay Lohan as holding “the same single name recognition as Oprah or Madonna,” as Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, says. NOT I!!!

    This girl is a perfect example of extreme insecurity and should just take herself out of the public spotlight to forgo further damage.

  6. plus, wouldn’t you think she’d want to separate herself from her image as an alcoholic skank? she’s only reinforcing it by getting mad about a baby being portrayed that way. a freaking baby she thinks is her. what a moron.

  7. i mean its not like her name is paris but who cares its a name what a loser

  8. […] Since we mentioned Lohan vs eTrade here, here’s the Onion’s man on the street reaction: Chuck Anderson, Store Manager […]
