I'll bet nobody remembers Carmen Miranda..I always thought of her when this commercial came on. She was a Spanish entertainer in the 40's and 50's, who wore these huge headdresses of fruit when she performed!

I don't remember Carmen Miranda but I know about her--and this commercial is certainly supposed to be an allusion to her style. There's an urban myth that she died on television. It's not true. She appeared on Jimmy Durante's TV show, finished the broadcast, and died suddenly later that night.

Sophia, you are wrong on two accounts. Carmen Miranda is still well remembererd,m especially in the Gay community. also, she was not Spanish, but Brazilian (known as the Brazilian Bombshell)
