Hollywood Pimps Pimping Products

Post by Dalty » February 11th, 2015, 1:42 am

It was mentioned the other day in another thread, where big Hollywood stars moonlight in TV ads abroad, Lost In Translation style, far enough away that it doesn't damage their own 'brand' at home. Here's the current ones from UK TV:

George Clooney selling coffee machines
Ashton Kutcher selling chewing gum
Harvey Keitel selling insurance
Sylvester Stallone selling bread
ScarJo, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron (in different ads) selling perfume

Any others out there? Japan is usually good for a giggle for this kind of thing.

I had heard Newcastle Brown Ale was a thing over there now. Barely believed it!

Newcastle Brown Ale is what got me into giving beer another chance when I first started drinking. Of course, I'd only tried light lagers until that point, so anything was going to seem interesting in comparison.

Mila Kunis selling Jim Beam. All sweaty and husky in a distillery, carting barrels around. I'll have to watch it again to make sure I get all the details correct. And again, and again, and again......

The Japanese automatically don't count, on account of them just being fucking weird.

The Japanese do count. On an abacus, even.

The entire commercial is only about 1:30 minutes long, but it was doubled for this video. In any case, I marked my favorite part so you can jump right to it if you want.
