Louis The Chimpanzee, Former Commercial Star, Dies

Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad SadZooChimpanzee

Louis the chimpanzee was a former UK TV commercial star in the '70s and '80s, starring in ads for PG Tips, a brand of tea.

The ads, or adverts as the Brits say, were spy parodies.

Louis would play Brooke Bond, a parody of James Bond and it's so CUTE!

Sadly, Louis has passed away at the ripe age of 37 after a short illness.

Pet Shop Boys Are Back In Action! Take A Trip Back To The 80's With Their New Single Axis!

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic Minute

Simply put, the 80's were the BEST! It was a time of big hair, fabulous clothes, and of course, the Pet Shop Boys!

Well the british duo is bringing a little slice of the past to the present as they're preparing to release their twelfth studio album Electric this summer!

Ch-ch-check out their latest single, Axis (above)!

Staying true to the name of their forthcoming album, the new tune is a techno-driven piece that basically brings the dance party to your computer screen!

The Pet Shop Boys have been recording and touring pretty much non-stop over the past three decades, but they've stuck with the same electro synth-pop they started with! And trust us, that's a VERY good thing!

Seriously, you do NOT have to be a child of the 80's to appreciate how awesome this song is! Although it certainly does't hurt! LOLz!

The Carrie Diaries: Carrie Gets Devirginized & Is Headed For Trouble? Watch The Sneak Peek HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsSex & The City

The Carrie Diaries has already seemed to get Sarah Jessica Parker’s seal of approval, but was the pilot enough to leave you wanting more??

Last night, we got a look into Carrie Bradshaw’s life before her Sex & The City days and got to revel in ‘80s hits and relive those awkward teenage years!

However, is Carrie only getting herself into trouble, hanging out with and being influenced by Larissa, the Interview mag style editor and klepto?

Check out next week’s promo (above)!!

Now that the majority of the backstory is out of the way, let’s hope the show’s second ep REALLY reels us in!

Sofia Vergara Gets Fizzy With Pepsi Ad Flashback!

Gurl ALWAYS had a bangin’ bod!

Oh Sofia Vergara, how you slay us with those Colombian curves of yours!

While Modern Family might not have won at the Golden Globes last night, we ended up seeing LOTS of Sofia anyways, with her new Pepsi ad playing at EVERY commercial break!

However, it seems as though Mz. Vergara is a Pepsi ad veteran — she starred in her very first one at just 17-years-old!

Check out the vintage Vergara ‘80s ad (above)!!

Sofia was turning heads even back then!

The actress recently looked back on her commercial experience, stating:

“We didn’t have to work on the wardrobe that much when I was 17. I just put on a little bikini and that was it. Now, 22 years later, you have to nip and tuck and everything, so wardrobe takes a little bit longer!”

LOLz! She still looks flawless to us!

And, if you missed Sofia's latest ad for the bubbly drink, take a look… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
