I love the overacting in this commercial for My Sweet 16 cosmetics. The girl in it is so clearly trying to be enthusiastic for the camera, showing off the blue lipstick — oops, wait, that's eye shadow! — and putting pressure on herself to look like big sis and friends. ("I have to look as pretty as they do!") In reality, anyone at my actual sweet 16 would have been subjected to Manic Panic hair dye, volcanic acne, and baggy skateboarding t-shirts.
