Put On A Little Makeup (and Have a Coke)

Posted by – January 25, 2006

I assume most people saw the Coke commercial where the woman goes into the barbershop and gets a man’s haircut, and I’m kind of surprised no-one told me about it – because the background music is Adam Ant’s “Goody Two Shoes” (and I’m a lifelong Adam Ant fan, for those who don’t know).


While I won’t bother to go into the myriad reasons Adam decided to sell a song for what I

assume are the big bucks now, I am pleased that the commercial is about some version of genderfuck, since Adam was one of the prettiest versions ever, in his day, and the lyrics are pretty a propos:

we don’t follow fashion
that’d be a joke

    I had a friend back in hi school that dresseed like him (as much as one can without getting their ass kicked in suburban ohio)

    Helen, you are so damn cool.

    Though, I can’t say that the video kick started my hormones. ๐Ÿ˜‰
