Question: I am a big Alice Cooper fan. There is a back-to-school ad running for some office-supply store that features Alice Cooper buying supplies with some little girl while his "School's Out" song plays in the background. Is that his daughter in the commercial? Ronnie R., Atlanta, Ga.
Televisionary: "Some office-supply store"? Oy, Ronnie. You're killing the Staples ad people. But no, a Staples spokesperson told me the girl is an 11-year-old actress, though Cooper does have a daughter that age. Matter of fact, she said, the singer's real daughter asked him to take her shopping there after seeing the commercial, which leaves me wondering if the poor girl worried about being replaced. No word on whether Cooper actually took her or not, but he got a chuckle out of the whole thing.
