Nicole Kidman’s Schweppes Commercial: What Did You Expect?

By Lindsay Robertson / May 6, 2009

Schweppes bought Nicole Kidman and the little girl from Slumdog Millionaire for a weird new commercial for their soft drinks, and I can’t put my finger on it, but it makes me feel uncomfortable:

Why did she start to take her dress off and then run to the soft drinks and the little girl? Why is the little girl looking at her all admiringly like “Pretty white lady!” Actually, not to be too mean about Nicole’s injectables but maybe she’s thinking “Cool, an alien!”
