We know, we know. When you think Dunkin Donuts, the first thing you think of is troubled British supermodels, right? No? Oh, then it must be emo pseudo-indie actor/directors, yeah? No? Us neither. That’s why we were so very surprised to learn that Naomi Campbell will be starring in a Zach Braff-directed ad for the D. Now. Naomi Campbell is truly one of the world’s great beauties, but she is: a) not from anywhere near Boston (damn you, Rachael Ray for opening the non-Masshole floodgates!), b) probably not a regular consumer of donuts and/or calories, and c) quite possibly best known by those who don’t follow fashion as “that lady who threw a phone at her maid.” Meanwhile, Zach Braff is a very proud Jersey boy and involved in a string of increasingly more tiresome movies. Are these really the people we want representing our state’s favorite brand?
You know who wouldn’t hit their assistant or make The Last Kiss? Fred. To cleanse your DD-related-palate after too much thought about Naomi and Zach, here’s Fred’s finest 34 seconds.
