Toonfomercial: Lovely Lady pantyhose (2010)

The following commercial began airing on Boomerang a couple of months back, and I assume it's so Cartoon Network Studios, which would inherit any outstanding licenses from Hanna-Barbera on Josie & the Pussycats, can renew the copyrights that go with those licenses. Here, Josie, Melody, & Valerie are doing an ad for "Lovely Lady" pantyhose, which actually doesn't exist. It's more along the lines of Nickelodeon's infamous Twip back in the day.

Yeah, I know, you might've expected someone like Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo to be the one modeling the hose, but maybe the folks at Da Boom figured that was too obvious, and the 'Cats were always drawn bare-legged (we think) in the comics and the old cartoons. I should note that the "Lovely Lady" ad has only aired in late night to my knowledge. Kelzkeli210 uploaded it to YouTube:

I think Boomerang's waiting to see if enough people like the ad before deciding whether or not someone like Daphne would be next.......
