I’m so accustomed to seeing Taylor Momsen as a teen angst-ridden, raccoon-eyed actress, that I admittedly have forgotten that she was an incredibly cute little kid. In the days before Little J started scheming against Blair & Co., on Gossip Girl, little Momsen starred in commercials, including this highly adorable Shake ‘N Bake ad. So before tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl, enjoy this video of Momsen, in which the scariest thing in the video isn’t seeing a 17-year-old girl in lingerie, but rather the freakishly unnatural sound of chicken crunching as it’s first bitten into.
Before you can ask yourself how this little moppet hocking Shake ‘N Bake transformed into this generation’s bleach blond Elvira, Momsen recently spoke out against her parents, saying that they robbed her of her childhood. (Her parents signed her up with Ford modeling agency at age two — she’s three in this commercial — and since then, “I didn’t have friends. I was working constantly, and I didn’t have a life,” Momsen said.)
What do you think about little Taylor Momsen, PopWatchers? Does anyone else remember this commercial?
