Ellen K claims she gets treated at Boise’s Ideal ImageDon @ IdahoRadioNews | July 5, 2009
File this in very bad ideas. Local hair removal shop (and heavy radio advertiser) Ideal Image is running spots during On Air with Ryan Seacrest on KSAS/103.3 Kiss FM featuring sidekick Ellen K. Ellen – one-time Playboy pinup and best friend of one of those Kardashian-show people lives in Los Angeles. But she is telling people here in Boise she got hair removal done at Ideal Image and she “loves it.” She blathers on for just shy of 60 seconds before telling folks to call Ideal Image and “tell ‘em Ellen K from On Air with Ryan Seacrest sent ya.”
It isn’t uncommon for nationally syndicated talent to voice local spots – everyone from Glenn Beck to Delilah offers the service. But by having that national talent claim he or she personally uses the service when chances are they have never been anywhere near Boise, you’re treading on really thin ice. Beyond it being a silly fabrication — I think most people in the audience will see right through it.
