DuckFace: I Feel Like I’m Taking Crazy Pills!

One of my favorite movies of all time is Zoolander. If you haven’t watched it, please give it a chance. Essentially the plot is about a successful male model (Derek Zoolander) with a terribly low IQ, yet for all intents and purposes, has only “ONE LOOK” and can’t turn left at the end of the runway; he always has to turn right. Well, in the movie, he has a name for each one of his “Looks”/poses. I have posted Le Tigre here (I think) but it wouldn’t matter if I had posted Blue Steel because every one of them is the same facial expression.

In the movie, Will Ferrell’s character, fashion mogul Mugatu, seems to be the only person who notices these faces, these looks, are all the same single expression. Of course, us viewers notice too, but nobody asked our opinion. I crack up every time I remember the scene where Mugatu screams “I Feel Like I’m Taking Crazy Pills” because no one will listen to him ranting about Zoolander only having one look. Well, my dear internet friends. I feel like I’M the one taking crazy pills because no matter how many times I see jokes and links about “DuckFace” on girls, THEY WON’T STOP MAKING THAT FACE!

Obviously, not enough people have expressed their distaste for DuckFace/ Duck Lips, so I am adding myself to the list in the hopes that all the Promo Models I know will never ever make these faces. My models have to take multiple pictures at every event and then upload/send them to me. Luckily, I have not received DuckFace pictures yet; HOWEVER, I have received them with applications. What are you thinking girls???

You have a pretty face to begin with but shoving your lips together only makes me think of a Baboon’s behind, and I would NOT hire a Baboon’s behind to promote our brand. I know this picture is graphic but you can’t deny the resemblance between the girl above and this behind.

Let me please mention, Blowing a Kiss is not the same as Duckface. One of my Clique Vodka Promo Models knows the art of blowing a kiss. She NEVER looks like she has DuckFace.  How does she do it? I might be going out on a limb here, but I think she actually pretends to blow a kiss. You know, instead of just shoving her mouth together to create lips like a blow-up doll. Need any pointers before your next bathroom mirror photoshoot? Ask @taiabaia on Twitter. She’ll help you look like a respectable lady, just like, surprisingly, Christina Aguilera does in this picture.

Or you know, you could always just smile.   😀
