Even though T-Mobile girl Carly Foulkes is one of the most recognizable brand spokespeople out there right now, giving Progressive’s Flo a run for her money, the phone company has decided to remove her from its significant new campaign which introduces its integration of the iPhone to its service.
“The current campaign will not feature the character of the T-Mobile Girl, however she is still a part of the company’s brand family,” a spokesperson told BI.
That’s usually how brands say that they’re ditching their spokesperson without officially having to say say it.
Sure sometimes spokespeople can come back from the dead — literally in the case of William Shatner after Priceline realized it was a horrible mistake to kill the face of its company in a fiery bus crash — but it’s a rare occurence.
We have profiled Foulkes before, but wanted to remind readers why they fell in love with this graphic novel-reading, video-game playing, 24-year-old Alanis Morissette fan in the first place.
Foulkes is from our neighbor to the North.
According the description on her Twitter account, “I am Canadian. Embrace it. Love it. …Please:)”
The province? Again, according to her Twitter, “Your moms house.”
Foulkes was born to British parents who raised her in Toronto. She spent her summers in the U.K.
She’s only 24.
Foulkes first donned the T-Mobile dress when she was only 22 years old.
Born on August 4, 1988, Foulkes is proudly a Leo. According to an interview with My Daily, she was distressed when false rumors spread last year that the astrological calendar had shifted.
If we are going to take the whole astrology thing seriously, being a Leo means Foulkes can be a little melodramatic and vain, but she is also ambitious, encouraging, and loyal.
She loves to skateboard and play video games.
She enjoys reading graphic novels.
