hey everyone! oh i'm beyond thrilled the weekend is finally here but i can't complain since it was a great day - everything i had to deal with went off without a hitch and now i can enjoy the weekend carefree plus having my parents here is great - i don't get to see them all that often! anyways what better way to kick off the next two days than some hot new ads for disney parks (who knew i'd be posting ads from disney on here but these are smokin' hot & way cool!)
the always excellent photographer annie leibovitz was commissioned by mickey to snap celebs dressed as disney characters for the **year of a million dreams** campaign! check out gorgeous david beckham as 'prince phillip' (who could rescue me anyday!) beyonce as 'alice' (flanked by lyle lovett & oliver platt) and finally scarlett johansson as 'cinderella' (maybe justin timberlake got a hold of her glass shoe...) i'd love to see victoria beckham as 'sleeping beauty' - which may actually happen as we'll be seeing more from this campaign - woo hoo! i hope everyone has a kick ass weekend - popbytes over & out for tonight...xxoo!
david beckham plays the part of the gallant prince phillip from "sleeping beauty," atop his trusted steed fighting the evil dragon. the tagline reads, "where imagination saves the day."
beyonce appears as "alice in wonderland," twirling in a teacup, accompanied by oliver platt as the mad hatter and lyle lovett as the march hare. the tagline reads, "where wonderland is your destiny."
as cinderella, scarlett johansson is seen running down a flight of stairs as the clock strikes midnight with her glass slipper unknowingly left behind. the tagline reads, "where every cinderella story comes true."
"i'm really delighted to be part of the 'where dreams come true' campaign," said leibovitz. "we live in difficult times and i feel, especially as a parent, that keeping dreams alive is one of the most important things we can do."
"there were many disney characters i liked as a kid," said beckham. "now my sons love the disney characters and it's a big part of their lives, a big part of many children's lives around the world. so to be part of that is an honor and very exciting. i love going to disney, i'm like a big kid..."
