'Glee's' Cory Monteith is the new face of Five Four
We just heard from the guys over at Five Four Clothing that they've tapped "Glee" actor Cory Monteith, who plays football quarterback Finn Hudson in Fox's fantastic new song-and-dance romp through high school, as the face of their holiday 2009 advertising campaign.
Creative director Andres Izquieta told me that he and label co-founder Dee Murthy have been friends with Monteith for about the last year or so and wanted to feature up-and-comers as the brand's ambassadors.
"We felt Cory was a great fit for the brand, so we shot it a few weeks ago and launched the campaign on Friday."
For anyone who's keeping track, the new show has barely aired its seventh episode of its debut season (No. 8 is scheduled for Wednesday night).
Now all somebody needs to do is cue up Journey's “Don’t Stop Believin’” on the All the Rage jukebox and we'll be all set.
