Young Han of Starbucks fronts Got Milk ad

Starbucks has recently jumped onto the Got Milk? bandwagon and has selected a Korean-American named Young Han to front its ad.

Korean-American Young Han fronts
Starbucks' Got Milk? ad

Han, who beat out several other nominees in a companywide contest, is a store manager from Mountain View, California.

The ad promotes Starbucks' beverages, such as the Grand Latte (which Han holds), as a good source of milk that provides about half an adult's recommended daily allowance for calcium and vitamin D. Ha ha ha, OK...but I like my milk neat.

Check out the video of Han relating his experience and a behind-the scenes look at the photoshoot. :-)

The American advertising campaign, which encourages the purchase of cow's milk, has featured some 250 celebrities along with brand icons such as Burger King (plugging for Hershey's Chocolate Milk). It has been running since October 1993.

Celebs who have front the Got Milk? campaign include:

Hayden Panettiere

Olsen Twins

Beyonce and Mom

Masi Oka

Oh yes, I've heard that Starbucks employees get great benefits in the US.

However, I wonder if that company policy crosses over the Pacific.
