Ads & Commercials



All the commercials works that Alyssa has done throughout her career as listed as follows:

 

Candies Perfume Commercials

Candie's, a fragrance line of Liz Claiborne, signed American actress Alyssa Milano in June 1999 to be the face of their Candie's perfume. The risque advertisements caused quite a still, and were rejected by several youth magazines including Seventeen. In July 1999, Alyssa Milano also signed with Candie's to promote their jeans collection.The Candies commercial however was banned due to the nature of the ads that might influences the children. And also due to the visual showcase of lingerie & condoms.

Proactiv Solutions Campaign

"Hereís something you might not know about me. I used to have acne. And while growing up on tv is great, it can be tough, too - especially when you have skin problems.

I had acne throughout most of my teens and twenties. It started all over my forehead, moved to my cheeks, and then it moved to my chin. It actually made my face sore. My dermatologist gave me all kinds of things to try, and sometimes if the pimple was bad enough he even tried an injection. I tried every antibiotic you can imagine, and nothing worked. Or it would work for a little while, and then the acne would come back. I sort of figured that this was it, that I was just going to be someone that suffered from acne forever.

As an actress on a tv series, we film every day. Back when I had an acne problem, my pimples were a real issue at work. There were days that I would wake up in the morning and look at my face, and actually apply makeup before I saw my makeup person on set because I was so embarrassed by my skin. At work there were often discussions about my pimples. The director would say something like ďWell, should we move the camera to the other side of her face?Ē Talk about embarrassing. They even had to schedule filming around my breakouts sometimes because all the makeup in the world couldnít hide it.

And then my god brother recommended Proactiv to me. He used to have acne, and I saw that his skin was getting better, so I figured Iíd try it. I felt a little weird about ordering something off tv but decided that I had nothing to lose. I started using Proactiv and I couldnít believe it. Almost immediately, it cleared up my acne. I felt like my pores were tighter and the overall texture of my skin was better. And over time there were less blackheads and no breakouts. It was really amazing.

Now that my skin is clear, filming around my breakouts isnít an issue anymore. Proactiv has given me peace of mind. Itís given me confidence. Itís made me comfortable in my own skin again. Now when I go to work my acneís never a problem, and thatís because I use Proactiv. I spend so much less time stressing about my acne, so I can concentrate more on my performance and just life in general. Proactiv is just great skincare. Itís the only product that cleared up my skin, and it keeps it clear because it actually helps prevent new breakouts from happening. You gotta love that. Itís the one skincare product I canít live without.

I know how it feels when you want the world to see the real you, and all theyíre seeing is your acne. But it doesnít have to be that way. Donít spend another moment feeling embarrassed about your skin. Get Proactiv. And face every day with the clear, beautiful skin you deserve."

Veet Commercials

Milano promotes Veet gel cream, which she says gets her legs smooth to the touch for up to twice as long as shaving. "Trust me. There's no pricklier situation on set than being.. well.. prickly." "Ok, 'nuf said. It's all about the legs."

1-800-Collect as Eve Savelot

1-800-COLLECT is a collect calling service run by WorldCom and the first to offer an alternative to dialing 0 before a phone number, which automatically used the collect calling service provided by the company the phone is managed by.

Originally, 1-800-COLLECT was set up for Americans traveling in Europe to be able to call home using collect calling. It can be used in the United States and Canada to call anywhere in those countries and over 130 international locations. Most of its popularity has come from its television ads, featuring Alyssa Milano as Eva Savelot, Mr. T as Inspecta Collect, Michael Jordan, and Verne Troyer. Features of the service include the ability to leave messages, third party billing, and card billing. Like a number of other telephone "savings methods", you need to use it for 20+ minutes to save money with the service.

What makes 1-800-COLLECT so profitable is that most people don't realize that they need to be connected for a long time to save anything and like any collect calling service an number of extra charges are added to the cost of the call. Most collect calls are very short and made from pay phones, which people rarely spend long period of time chatting on. This increases the chances that the person using the service will stay on for very long and the company can "legitimately" charge them for a full 20 minutes.
