Folks Want Nothing To Do With Courtney Stodden, Thank You Very Much

Hey, remember that craptastic commercial featuring Courtney Stodden as a mermaid that was so ridiculous some suspected it must be amateur absurdist performance art video? Close! Because the folks at would like for you to know that they did not, repeat, not hire Ms. Stodden to appear in any kind of advertisement for their brand whatsoever.


Moments ago, I received the following email:

Hi, Dodai

On behalf of my client,, I am requesting a correction for the following article on — Jezebel.

It has been inaccurately reported that Courtney Stodden was paid to star in an advertisement for did not hire, approve, or compensate Ms. Stodden or her production team for an advertisement or to represent the brand in any fashion. She and a production team were among dozens of creative producers who responded on spec to a posting on, a crowdsourced video production service, where brands and agencies post specific video assignments to generate creative concepts for review and consideration by a brand. Poptent's participation guidelines specifically state that any and all work product must first be selected, reviewed, and approved by the client brand or agency before it can be commercially shared or distributed. Such review and approval from or never occurred. Additionally, both and their client wish to reiterate that neither Courtney Stodden, nor her production team, were selected or funded for any advertisement, nor was she hired to be a representative of the brand. Poptent and are working together to rectify this misrepresentation of the brand.

Thanks in advance for your prompt response and attention to this matter.

Warm Regards,
Corie, on behalf of

The funniest part is that I was so distracted by the cooing mermaid and her underwire bra that I didn't even mention what company the commercial was for. But now, in my mind, will be known as The Company Deeply Horrified By Courtney Stodden, or TCDHBCS. Wait! It should be an aliteration, like The Company Convincingly Condemning Courtney's Crazy Commercial. Or some such.

Really? What high horse does think they're riding on? A company that's been been in several major lawsuits for deceptive and false advertising? has identified their entire model as a scam, and they've been investigated by everyone and their brother and roundly dismissed as misleading and a terrible business.

FYI, if you really want your free - legitimately free - report, the only place to go is And if you look closely at any of's advertising and website, they're legally obligated to tell you this now.
