The Women From Those Buick Commercials

A blog reader wrote to me wondering the identities of the women in a Buick commercial. They have numerous ads running, so I’ll cover a few of them. The first one isn’t even new…it came out at least a year ago, but has been getting aired again. Two friends are going to their friend’s baby shower. One picked up a cake that says “girl.” Only problem is that the baby, who’s going to be named Taylor, will be a boy. So they run back to the bakery for a “boy” cake. The brunette is Caitlin McHugh, and the blonde is Arielle Vandenberg, who also played the wife in State Farm’s popular “Never” ad.

In the second commercial, a woman parks her Buick Enclave and a bunch of kids pop out. Another woman passing by comments about how much room it has for “those little maniacs”, and suggests to her husband that they should have a ton more kids. Only they have three active ones already. Vanessa Rubio plays the Buick Enclave mom.. The husband of the stroller mom is Robert Belushi, who’s the son of Jim and the nephew of John. The song playing in both commercials is “It’s Alright” by Matt & Kim.

Tuesday Throwback: Bacardi Mojitos With Matt & Kim

Love, love, love this Bacardi mojito ad from Spring 2009. Puts a huge smile on my face. The idea of going to a party and having each room represent a different era is pretty killer. Great style and dancing too. The awesome, energetic song playing is “Daylight” by Matt & Kim. And something you may or may not know about alcohol commercials is that they are not allowed to actually show people drinking. Take note of that the next time you watch alchy advertising.

Tuesday Throwback: Bacardi’s Mojitos With Matt & Kim

Today, I debut a new feature called Tuesday Throwback. I’ll be looking at a notable commercial that’s no longer airing. It doesn’t have to be particularly old, just one that isn’t running anymore. Tuesday doesn’t really have anything going for it, so here’s something.

Love, love, love this Bacardi mojito ad from Spring 2009. Puts a huge smile on my face. It’s a better version of a Bacardi commercial that played endlessly this year, which I liked, but got old quickly. The idea of going to a party and having each room represent a different era is pretty killer. Great style and dancing too. The awesome, energetic song playing is “Daylight” by Matt & Kim.
