Fleetwood resident sings on Idol... sort of
Sarah Pinnix of Fleetwood made her singing and dancing debut on last night's premiere of American Idol, but not in the way you might think.
Pinnix's moves were showcased in a 60-second musical ad for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, along with other notable bloggers from across the country who were challenged to recreate their own version of the brand's over-the-top Turn the Tub Around! music video, featuring multi-talented Emmy- and SAG-award-winning Megan Mullally.
In the video Mullally sings and dances her way through the dairy aisle, encouraging people to look at the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! nutrition label and learn how the soft spread offers butter taste yet better health versus butter.
Pinnix's video was one of eight selected, out of 30 submitted, to be featured in the special spot. Viewers can vote for their favorite videos in the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Watch, Vote, and You Could Win! Sweepstakes by visiting http://www.turnthetubaround.com, from Jan. 12- through April 30.
Five winners will be chosen at random to win the grand prize, a three-day, two-night trip for two to Los Angeles, including a meet and greet with Mullally, a makeover, and dinner and tickets to a hit Hollywood show.
Pinnix's national TV-debut, as well as the original Turn The Tub Around video featuring Mullally, can be seen at icbinotbutter.com. Pinnix is the seventh blogger in the commercial, and her lines are "how it does astound," and "got to spread it."
