Serena Williams’ Sexy New Video Game Ad Pulled


Serena Williams Top Spin

A good ad agency knows what will offend the pretentious so it is not surprising that this Serena Williams ad for the video game Top Spin was considered “too risqué for television.” That television would be American TV and obviously not Trinidad and Tobago TV which is accustomed to showing all forms of gyrations without even breaking a sweat or receiving a complaint except that the video was too short, or the skirt too long.

The Top Spin ad, I suppose,stressed too much on  the behind the scenes attractions of tennis instead of the boring part of the game which is as bland as dry toast in prison.  I admire the ad agency not only for a well made video that holds the attention as much as anything on Playboy TV but in also understanding that to offend is sometimes necessary to succeed in a world where commercial success is usually driven by sex.

Ravi B digs out own eye then apologises


If for weeks I thought I was the front runner for winning $2 million via text message votes and didn’t win despite scores of expensive radio ads urging people to text for me, I might also think about inciting my fans to pelt whatever suitable projectile they could find at short notice. If I had a hairstyle like Ravi B I would never think somebody with a normal haircut and who looks like he is at least a generation older than me could beat me on text. This would be like Machel losing to Ravi at the Soca Monarch finals. It is true the winner, Ricki Jai, came out of a big White Oak bottle to start his performance but I doubt that would have caused the big difference in votes. Maybe it was Ravi’s performance or people’s love for White Oak and Water.  It could also be that many texters were under the influence while texting so mixed up Ravi with Ricki.

I was planning to throw an all inclusive fete next year so I too could get rich and was thinking of paying Ravi B to perform but now I might just ask Neisha B alone. Dr. Moonilal said Ravi B did not win because it was not his karma and also the Minister is suggesting Ravi B be charged with inciting violence as the country is now one role model short. The DPP already has so much on his plate so I doubt he will ever find the time to charge another celebrity with some trivial, plastic-cup offense in our country, the murder and corruption capital of the real world. With this latest celebrity outburst, the Chutney Soca Monarch is in need of some common sense so I want to recommend from next year the first prize for the competition be $500,000 if the winning song is about the delights of drinking alcohol and $2 million if it is about anything else.

Trinidad Carnival 2011 – Band Route, Prize Money, and Who is Boss


Bikini and Beads

Bikini and Beads

The Bands for this year Carnival are returning to the Savannah causing happiness in some who were previously unhappy. This move back is seen as so important that the theme for  Carnival 2K11 is “Back to D’ Savannah” aka “Forget Manning.” The National Carnival Commission, which is the body responsible for organizing Carnival celebrations in Trinidad and Tobago, has a budget of TT$130 million of which TT$45 million is for prizes. The Soca Monach and Chutney Soca Monarch competitions carries the biggest prizes with a first prize of TT$2 million each. These huge prizes caused a reinvigorated Machel Montano to not only enter the Soca Monarch competition after a long absence, but to also to declare on February 4th to a group of adoring fans that included Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, he will lose 20 pounds for the Competition so that he can fly off the stage easier. No doubt, Machel will be on the extremely effective and easy to follow  diet by Timothy Ferriss which guarantees followers will lose at least 20 pounds in four weeks without breaking a sweat or eating a chicken roti.

More Bikini and Beads

The first prize for Band of the Year is however only TT$1 million which might have something to do with the alleged huge profits band leaders make selling Mas Players bikinis and beads that are used to entertain locally while generating employment overseas. Minister of Arts and Culture and former US Marine, Winston “Gypsy” Peters, has threatened band leaders, and by extension all mas players, with a 1,000 to 2,000 percent increase in taxes on readymade costumes in an effort to create local, glue-gun jobs and show band leaders who is boss.

Gabrielle Walcott’s Sexy Beach Scene in Backlash


I pulled the grainy clip above from the DVD movie, Backlash. The scene shows former Miss Trinidad and Tobago World,  Gabrielle Walcott‘s brief and nearly wordless, but  yet hot and sexy bikini scene in the 2006 movie, Backlash which was filmed in Trinidad and Tobago.  She plays the one minute role of a nameless, Maracas Bay waitress retrieving Carib bottles from a couple who I edited out of the scene for clarity purposes. This movie can be classified as action and because of the string bikini waitress at Maracas Bay, a fantasy.

Yes, Backlash is a very, very, low-budget, B-movie featuring many scenic locations in Trinidad including Maracas Bay, St. James and bikini-clad women in carnival costumes. Naturally, this movie did not get any nominations but it might have been considered for aka_lol’s now infamous Best String Bikini on Maracas Bay Scene. Backlash is available on DVD through Amazon.com and features some good extras such as an interview with Machel MontanoMachel: The Man & His Music and also a Machel Montano music video.

I haven’t seen the whole movie yet and I was just skimming through for those sexy scenes that Trinidad and Tobago is famous for.  The movie is exciting for those who are into female cat-fighting as there is some pointless, female breast-grabbing during one of the fight scenes. Backlash is rated R for bikinis, fighting, some fuzzy nudity and yes, the one-second grabbing scene that is now so common in those cheap kung fu flicks struggling to get some attention.
