Happy Holidays and New Year to all our new friends!
You’ll be hearing a lot more from us in 2013!
Woke up yesterday to see this headline splashed across the Daily Mail (UK) online:
Chameleon actress turns Stanley Steemer commercial jingle into one-woman musical medley to show off her skills
Written by Tamara Abraham, the smashingly good article is accompanied by a gorgeous photo spread. You must flock to the Daily Mail article to see firsthand! It has become the jewel in our press kit!
The Huffington Post has also run a story on the Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia). (Blog followers will note the UK branch of Huffington Post was on the case weeks ago!)
Props to Jezebel.com (Celebrity, Sex, Fashion For Women), Advertising Ka Kamaal for coining the term “Jingle-O-Pedia,” carbonated.tv (5 out of 5 star rating for the video!), boomclips.com for calling Mia “talented (and pretty)”; and cultso.com for the plug (“A note to Stanley Steemer: Hire this woman.”)
Lastly, thanks for all the positive feedback and comments on YouTube! A big shout-out to Lindsay Morrison with the current top YouTube comment on The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia): I WATCH THIS EVERY DAY. Lindsay, you rock; we made this video for people like you and I know we’d be friends even though we’ve never met!
Stay tuned; we have a surprise or two up our sleeves before the New Year!
The buzz from The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia) is reverberating around the globe, and we are psyched to hear what our Asian and Australian friends are saying.
In print, Australian looks very much like English, but for Japanese and Chinese, we’ve had to rely on Google Translate. We can only guess what is getting mangled here, but take, for instance, this review, transformed into beautiful Japanese haiku:
Singing force beyond the genre! ?
Chameleon surprised! ?
Older sister Mia (nobody) DO NOT enemy.
A good singing ability wish is beyond the wall of the genre rather than Light ~ ~
I wish it tight skirt favorite by far too 1:35. (Sweat)
Well, I wonder how a place on earth now? ? ?
More from Japan…
What a singing ability! Divided sing every musical genre, song of the Stanley Steamer
“…terrible power of acting or performance. Sister Mia performers all came out even if more than one.” [Ed.: we couldn’t have said it better!]
Beautiful woman rock, jazz, opera singing divided
“Any completely different taste, great expressive power is in facial expression.”
Tweets from China:

// : 不错不错，没上美国好呻吟吗？: Not bad, not on the American moan?
[We love them all, but perhaps, the most apropos description of Mia is “a variety of diva-in-one.”]
Lastly, Australia has embraced The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia) in a big way!
A TALENTED performer in New York City has demonstrated her musical dexterity and powerful lungs in a hilarious homage to one of America’s catchiest commercial jingles. adelaidenow.com
Back to the USA tomorrow, including a Huffington Post article on Mia!
Ellen! Ellen! Look! Look up! Do you see me? Right above you! Not the guy in the hat; the gal to the left. Yeah! Hey! Have you seen my video? The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia)? I can’t believe we’re together on the same web page! This is crazy! It’s a sign! It’s an omen! Do you believe in omens? I think I do. Especially in this case! Okay, I’m just going to blurt it out… The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia) needs to be on the Ellen DeGeneres Show! You will love it; your fans will love it! Look at all the YouTube comments! (You can skip the ones talking about my boobs.) Omg, to be on your show, singing, dancing, cutting loose, even in a video, would be a dream come true… There I’ve said it; if I didn’t, I would’ve been kicking myself forever. I mean, what are the chances of us bumping into each other like this again? Okay, back to work. Thanks, Ellen. Think about it. Please?
All my best,
Congrats, Mia! You looked like a star! (Pictures and video coming soon)
If you missed the show, starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to watch it online!
Thanks, Good Morning America, you rock!
And if that wasn’t enough to make our day….
The Today Show Online ran a sweet article Singer turns Stanley Steemer jingle into dazzling romp through musical genres this morning as well.
It also made headlines on NBC News.com (currently on the front page)!
The mainstream media are catching the buzz that many of you are already seeing, hearing, and feeling! (We can taste it.)
Which brings us to…
Ellen? We’ve been hounding you. Stalking you. Trying to use remote mind control on you.
Have you had a chance to watch The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia)?
We are sure you will love it. In fact, we are so sure you will love it, that if you don’t love it, well… let’s cross that bridge when we come to it. Likely a moot point anyway. No sense worrying about things that probably won’t happen, right? Whew, deep breath. That feels great.
