Here’s a dirty little secret that celebrities don’t want you to know: Japanese advertisers pay big bucks for them to ‘act-a-fool’. Of course, coming from somebody like Britney Spears you may not be surprised; but don’t come crying to me when your favorite actor pops-up on the screen.
It’s hard to believe, but even the most respectable actors and actresses sell out.
All of these were recorded on tape back in 1995, but seriously, who cares about the quality when you’re cracking up. Sure, some of these commercials seem pretty normal. The ones with and Jodie Foster and Kevin Costner, for example, could easily be shown on American TV without anyone batting an eye.
However, the ad with Madonna saying “I’m pure” couldn’t ever be taken seriously by anyone speaking English. And let’s just say Arnold Schwarzenegger wouldn’t have been elected ‘Governator’ if these clips were broadcasted prior to his election.
If you can stomach it, here’s the complete list of celebrities in order of appearance:
Harrison Ford, Britney Spears, Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Simpsons, Brad Pitt, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, Steven Seagal, Mariah Carey, Charlie Sheen, Meg Ryan, Sean Connery, Leonardo DiCaprio, The Adams Family, Bruce Willis, Jodie Foster, Kevin Costner, Nicholas Cage, and Winona Rider.
Only in Japan can Sylvester Stallone out-act Harrison Ford.
