Funny: Erica the Grand Poobah of Pasta vs. RueLaLa Model

I was browsing the preview for the MaxMara sale on Rue La La (April 24) and was hit with a funny thought - the model they are using looks eerily similar to "Erica, the Grand Poobah of Pasta" from the Glad commercials. The look, to me, is so similar it's hard to focus on the clothing. I know it's just he hair but come on...




I literally had to look for a long while on the internet before I remembered what that commercial was even for because the only thing I remembered was "Meet Erica, Grand Poobah of Pasta, Viceroy of Value, Connoisseur of Cold..." or however it goes. Good Ad because I remember it (and they play it CONSTANTLY), bad ad because I had no idea what the product was.

Anyway...

Now the MaxMara Model on Rue La La...


And again...


She could be smelling cheese, don't you think?

I think maybe that blond hairstyle is ruined for me for life. But there is a similarity, isn't there? Oh well. Hopefully the sale will be good enough so that we all qualify for the title of "Viceroy of Value".

Anyway...
