Uma Thurman gets paid a shit-ton of money to lay around looking sexy for Schweppes.

Good for her, I guess. I'm only posting these because it's Uma, and because the ads were done by those overrated pretentious French hacks Fred & Farid. Photography by overrated one-trick pony David LaChapelle.
Here's the rather odd, unsexy commercial from the campaign.

Brilliant shots. I've met David LaChapelle. He is a genius. A real creative. If he is a one trick pony, you must be a 0 trick pony.

Some of these "photos" (I'm being generous by using the term) are veering dangerously towards Photoshop Disaster territory. Look at her arms in that first pic: The right is at least 4 inches longer than the left. All of the pics look like they were coloured by a kid with pencil crayons.

In my pre-photoshop days, it was all down to co-ordination and balance.

Hell, if I could make a living being aloof and pretentious and making bizarre advertising just because it seems classy, I would.

Is that a condom in the upper left of the shot with the car?

Didn't realize it was Thurman.

The "fruits .. well kind of." made me think the models were drag queens.

there's so much make up on her face, like they want to hide the fact that it's Uma

"Shit ton" waste of money because the Photoshop surgery makes her utterly unrecognizable as a celebrity. Looks like some long blond anyone and no one in particular.
