'Simple Life' star Paris Hilton's commercial song released as single
UPI News Service, 06/08/2005
A full-length version of the recording of "I Love Paris," the song featured in Paris Hilton's controversial Carl's Jr. TV ad, is being released on iTunes.
Santa Monica-based HUM Recordings, a division of HUM Music, said the recording by indie rocker Eleni Mandell was being released in response to consumer demand.
The Carl's Jr. commercial -- in which Hilton strikes sexy poses in a skimpy bathing suit while washing a car -- provoked criticism by the Parents Television Council that it amounted to soft-core pornography.
Mandell said she was shocked the commercial got so much attention.
"Bottom line is that it's a good commercial," she said. "The fact that people are responding to the music is a wonderful surprise."
