Pretty woman in ‘De Blob 2’ commercial: Natasha Hugger
From the moment I first saw the ad while watching “Adventure Time” on the Cartoon Network, I had to know who she was. It’s a star-making 30-second performance. The camera loves her. Her bright eyes and her smile are captivating.
But finding out who she is wasn’t easy.
I checked the websites affiliated with THQ’s video game “De Blob 2” and couldn’t locate the commercial I saw, much less information about it. I did Web searches for woman and actress in “De Blob 2” and came up empty.
I saw the ad again today and tried a few different searches.
Eventually I stumbled upon a question posted to Answers.com’s WikiAnswers. Somebody wrote, “Who is the hot girl in de blob 2 commercial?”
The first answer posted was wrong. (I later deleted it.)
Thankfully someone else responded with the correct answer: L.A.-based dancer Natasha Hugger. That someone was Ms. Hugger’s proud boyfriend, who notes that she will be featured in the musical “The Producers” at the Cabrillo Theaters in Thousand Oaks, Calif., in April.
Congratulations to Ms. Hugger for making such an impact in the commercial. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person wowed.
Update (Feb. 27, 2011): I found the commercial on Vimeo.
