Lindsay Lohan Suing E*Trade Over Super Bowl Ad

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan is suing for $100 million from E*TRADE, believing that the "milkaholic" baby featured in their Super Bowl commercial was modeled after her.

The ad features a baby named Lindsay, accused of being the other woman in a baby love triangle. We'd love to have been in the writers' room for this one.

At one point, the "girlfriend" baby demands to know whether or not the main baby was out doing some partying with "that milk-a-holic Lindsay" last night.

A third baby pops into frame - supposedly "Lindsay" - and delivers the line "Milk-a-what?" Totally her. Anything "-holic" is a jab at Lohan, without a doubt.

Naturally, Linds feels this "subliminal message" is defamatory.

Lohan in Full Effect

In response, the alleged actress has filed a lawsuit in Nassau County, N.Y., Supreme Court, claiming E*TRADE violated her  rights by using her "name and characterization" in business without paying her or getting her approval.

Perhaps Lindsay should start an E*TRADE account, because there are other ways of getting paid than frivolous lawsuits (her surname is never spoken in the ad).

Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, says that doesn't matter, under the reasoning: "Do you know the name Oprah? You know the name Madonna? Same thing."

Regarding the "milkaholic" reference, Ovadia would not address it directly, except to say that "If you look at the commercial as a whole, it's Lindsay Lohan."

Is it really, though? You be the judge:

This is funny but the first time I saw this commercial on Super Bowl Sunday I immediately thought of Lindsay Lohan when the baby said "milk-o-holic". If I were Lohan I would sue. Why not? E-Trade is a complete rip off anyway.

Babies will steal the show everytime,love this commercial.
Lindsay is trying to remain in the public eye, but because of the
negative route that she has been taking,she is fast becoming over-exposed,and a laughing stock.It seems that Lindsay is going through something similar to Brittany's meltdown.I do not know if her mother Dina is still managing Lindsay,but somewhere in that fogged up mind is a much needed intervention.I do not know whether
her immediate family is still in contact with her.I have not seen
pictures of Lindsay with her mother and sister for quite some time.I do not know whether she feels abandoned by her family,and friends,but I do believe that Lindsay Lohan is crying out for help.She has been lead astray,and does not know how to come back.

Uhm. I gotta admit I actually did think of her when I saw the commercial. Still think the lawsuit is totally lame though.

Completely agree, Lindsay Lohan never came to mind when I see this commercial. She still does not. And her lawyer is an idiot, of course you think of OPRAH when you hear Oprah, or MADONNA when you hear Madonna, because they are one of very FEW with that name. It is NOT the same thing, Lindsay is a very common name. She needs to clean herself up and make a name for herself by doing something admirable, not grasping for media attention of frivolous lawsuits. She needs to just go away for good.

WOW! She really needs to get over herself. I have seen that commercial MANY times (it was one of my favorites) and never once did I think of Lindsay Lohan. A HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS?!?!?!?! Does she have any clue about what life is like on planet earth?
