A Gold Coast star of the con­tro­ver­sial Ul­tra Tune TV com­mer­cials opens up on why she is happy to play one of its ‘dumb, young fe­males’

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

“It’s the whole damsel in distress thing that the fem­i­nist groups hate,” she says. “They hate that women can’t help them­selves. That will def­i­nitely get all the fem­i­nists riled up. Ba­si­cally we play dumb, blond, young fe­males who are un­able to drive and there is a man who saves us – so that sparks con­tro­versy.”

Hansen takes any in­sults in her stride: “Some peo­ple tend to make a joke, like they will re­peat my lines from the ad at me and laugh about them. I think that is pretty com­i­cal be­cause they have ob­vi­ously watched the ad that many times they’ve mem­o­rised my lines.”

Hansen, 23, says she has “a new love for act­ing” and hopes to spring­boad into re­al­ity TV or sit­com work.

Clearly Sheen en­joyed him­self (but then he did get paid $500,000), tweet­ing soon af­ter: “#win­ning with Sean (Buck­ley) and the good folks of Ul­tra Tune! An­other road­side emer­gency thwarted! To be con­tin­ued, in so many epic ways!”
