When people compare your body to Jessica Rabbit, you know you’ve got something going on. Melyssa Ford, better than a cartoon bombshell, is our ‘Crush of the Day.’

Born in Canada, Ford’s enticing ethnic background combines Barbadian, Russian and Norwegian into an exotic melange. She was discovered bartending in a Toronto nightclub by director Little X, who promptly began casting her in rap music video. Probably her most famous spot was in Jay-Z’s ‘Big Pimpin’ clip, but she’s also been in videos for Jadakiss, Usher and R. Kelly.

In addition to her video work, Ford has modeled for a number of men’s magazines, done significant TV work and even movies including ‘Turn It Up’ and ‘Good Hair.’
