I had no idea until today that the young man dancing in that striking Doublemint gum commercial was a young hip-hop/pop star called Chris Brown. He's apparently the boyfriend of Rihanna, another young pop star, and allegedly had an altercation with her before the Grammys that led to his being arrested and her going to the hospital. From what I've read, he's had an entirely clean record and reputation up to this point, not exactly a gangsta thug. It's all very strange, and disappointing. I'm no fan of Rihanna's--I really can't stand her type of music--but I loved that gum commercial, and the beautiful dance moves of the handsome young man with the sweet smile.
