About Those Superbowl Promo Sightings

I'm not sure that the pictures from Alaska Dispatch showing scenes from a taping done at Sarah Palin's "Superbowl Commercial" show us much more than the Guv's love of cameras.

It is pretty clear that Trig is in the crowd, along with Chuck Heath, Sarah's father.  Then there are two girls who trade off holding Trig.  One wears a reddish top and the other, a white sweatshirt.  Neither of those girls looks pregnant or post-partum.

The images below show the best shot I can get of the girl in red (reportedly taken in late January 2009), and then press photos of Bristol and Willow Palin around September - October 2008.  The second image of the girl in red has been de-speckled and sharpened somewhat.

Bristol profile

Willow profile

The girl in red's nose/mouth/chin looks wrong, that is, if we suppose it might be Bristol.  Bottom line, the images from the Alaska Dispatch are too poor quality-wise to tell very much.

Here is a link to the photo of the niece that auctioned the shoes on ebay. I believe that is her and not Bristol in the superbowl photo.

I have to agree with you, AKPetMom. The girl in red bears more resemblance to the Naughty Monkey seller than either of the teenaged Palin girls.

Dianne said...

Yes, I must agree. Upon a closer view the girl does not appear to be Bristol.

Thanks for the sharpened image of the girl possibly Bristol. I agree completely: not her profile.

just a different question:

can anyone tell, is Trig wearing glasses? I think I see them, almost-clear frames? But, with my visual deficits, I'm just not sure?

No, I don't see Trig wearing glasses.
The girls are the only ones who don't hold him like a sack of potatoes!

Kitty said...

The pics are clear enough to tell that the little kid behind them is picking his nose... Frankly, the girl holding him looks just as much like Bristol as the "Bristol". I'd put any differences down to pregnancy weight loss and gain and a professional make-up job at the RNC.

More pictures showing up for the SB commercial. First one is stills, second one has many more, as a slideshow. In at least two of them, Piper can be seen (in magenta), and in one of them is a clear pic. of Willow (in white). The girl in orange can clearly be seen. She is NOT Bristol.
