    "The photographer takes dozens of photographs with the celebrity in many different positions. The entire shoot could take as long as 2 to 3 hours. Although the photographer has a clear idea of how he/she wants the ad to look, a celebrity can always improvise. While shooting rockers Eddy and Alex Van Halen, Alex poured the entire milkshake over his head. Photographer Annie Liebovitz captured the moment on film, and that picture became the final ad."-www.whymilk.com

    I was reading about how the "got milk" ads are shot, and I came across this. I remeber this ad, but I've never really thought about how funny it was. Imagine Alex just pouring milk over his head for a photoshoot, it's great! I was looking or a picture of this ad, but I can not find one. Do any of you have it? If so could you post it? Thanks.

    Yea, I remember reading about that a while back. Look on Van-halen.com right above the 1997 timeline...

    I always thought that ad was pretty funny. Betweem the tongue-in-cheek text that mocks the whole inability to keep a singer to the images a milk-drenched Al conjure up (just what WAS he doing a moment ago?), it's pretty great.

    Then again, to have those two as the poster-boys for milk seems pretty silly

    I actually always thought this was a bit pathetic. The last time they had milk was when, as Groundskeeper Willie would say, "they were sucking at their mother's teet".
