    That goes down in the history of epic fails :lol:

    No she's not. I'm sure she's enjoying getting paid to be shooting with it, though.

    ok. well I am sure she is enjoying the money she makes endorsing it. I still don't get why anyone would be bothered by the commercial. I shoot canon, love in fact. Doesn't bother me. Now if it was saying only losers shoot with canon or that if you own a canon then you are a racist or murder or somthing...then I would TOTALLY be upset. But poser Avril could say she is a pro with her xsi and kit lens and shoots in full auto and charges $1000 to shoot a wedding and it still woudnt bother me.

    You people crazy, its simple marketing. Companies will use celebrities to endorse their products; they don't care if a small percentage of people don't like it (even if they are the ones who take photography seriously or what not). And a side note, how the heck does a teenage girl owning a point and shoot make her slutty?:er:

    The only person more foolish for buying something based on the endorsement of a Celebrity is someone who listens to the advice of a Celebrity when it comes to Politics and politicians. :lol:

    This thread and the Nikon Ashton Kutcher Rant thread ought to be combined. It would be just too funny. :lmao:

    Ashton Kutcher

    Our luck Canon would end up taking Ashton Kutcher for commercials and Nikon would end up with Maria Sharapova. She is the only reason I watch a Canon commercial and I'm a Canon user. :lol:

    Do you know how many people have come into my store and ask "Hey what's that camera Avril Lavigne was using in that commercial?". Guess how many people. It's double digits.

    It works on the "unwashed masses" and therefore infuses your favourite camera company with some cash to spend on R&D, which in turn helps all of us "serious photographers" out.

    If everyone compared the Avril commercials to that Canon would be out of business.

    Do what Leica users (and this Olympus user) have done for years:

    Gaffer's tape over the logos.

    Cheers :)
