Cocaine Kate meets Cloud 9

Kate Moss’ advisers know the way to crawl out of a scandal is with a laugh.

Her new Virgin Mobile phone commercial follows the tabloid axiom that when the chips are down, the best defense is making yourself the butt of the joke.

Cocaine Kate looks sexy, wholesome, beautiful-- and even talks in the advert.

An added bonus for Kate Moss fans as the spot is bounced around the Internet: her costar is Ken Garito, who shares the screen with Burt Reynolds in Cloud 9, out on Fox Home Entertainment DVD on January 3rd.

In Cloud 9, Ken plays Tommy Z, the bartender at the Cloud 9 strip club, where Burt recruits the sexiest beach volleyball team in cinematic history.

Cloud 9, written and produced by Brett Hudson and Burt Kearns of Frozen Pictures and Academy Award winner Albert S. Ruddy, goes head-to-head with Wedding Crashers on the DVD racks. It's being touted as the new Dodgeball, though it's also been called "Million Dollar Boobies." Cloud 9 is Ruddy's follow-up to his Oscar winning best Picture of 2004.

Cloud 9 boasts an impressive cast, including D.L. Hughley, Paul Rodriguez, Angie Everhart, Gabrielle Reece, Gary Busey,Tom Arnold, Tony Danza, Kenya Moore, Patricia De Leon, Ric Overton, Pat Finn, Jeff Altman, and Bruce Bruce—among others. (Find out more at the Frozen Pictures blog.)

It’s a cast not unlike Oscar-contender Crash—which also features Ken Garito.
