I don’t understand Nicole Kidman’s new commercial for Schweppes.
I mean, Nicole is supposed to be some wax alien creature in India who befriends Rubina Ali from Slumdog Millionaire. The two run off to some gazebo by the water where they touch each other’s faces. Rubina is probably transfixed with Nicole’s frozen mug, because it feels just like an empty plastic yogurt container. After that ridiculousness, Nicole runs off to her room while unzipping her dress. She runs into Bollywood star Argun Rampal in the hallway and starts to give him a kiss, but instead she shuffles off. When she’s inside her home, she grabs a bottle of Schweppes, drinks it, says “What did you expect?” and then giggles like a dumbass. Cut to Rubina inside of the room giggling with Nicole. WHA?! Touching a child’s face by the water? Turning down a hot piece for soda? Unzipping your dress for absolutely no reason? This makes no sense.
But the biggest WTF moment is Nicole drinking Schweppes without vodka, gin or even rubbing alcohol. Ick. Nast. Who drinks that shit straight up?!
