Victoria Principal played the part of Pam Ewing for 9 years, 1978-1987.
According to wiki, she was the only one in the cast whose contract allowed her, and not the network, to keep control of image and profit from e.g. commercials, write books, etc.
Clever entrepreneur and philanthropist.
So, yeah, she probably washed her hair on air...
Strange how we retain images of actors and associate them with products.
Seldom looking beyond.
A bit like here, I suppose.
Actually, she associated herself with the product. I merely drew a reference between your title and her commercial.
Hey, DP, yes I did notice what you did when posing your question. I don't actually know that she was ever shown washing her hair in the shower, to promote Herbal Essences. But there are a few Jhirmack shampoo commercials on YouTube, who knew ?
So, I answered your question, and then took it further - kinda relating it back to previous thoughts in the OP, a bit more substantial than the title.
Talking generally about how we can all take a celebrity, or a PN poster, simply at the level of helping to sell a product - whether soap, froth, Calvin Klein or deep existential space.
Some endorsements of a product, or view, can backfire.
Scarlett Johansson and Sodastream: affected her association with Oxfam International.
Some PN posters and their names/images we can instantly associate with certain belief systems and their ways of selling. Perhaps not the best or most accurate presentation of a view which is then hotly contested by others. Think Einstein.
You don't need to look far...
But then, my point is that we seldom look further - even if we take great exception to someone, there will be more to that person than what is shown. Some might be seen as lightweight butterflies, flitting about with no obvious sense of purpose - others more deadweight with a hard sell on their minds. It's all good. Some never venture out their comfort zone. Only recently, at the prodding of Hobbsy, I took a tentative stab at politics and economics...and found I had more to say than I thought...
