Hilarious Celebrity Product Endorsements! Stallone! Humphrey Bogart! Wacky Ads Galore!


Jennifer Aniston’s Chronic Dry Eye Problem!

I’m not making fun of her at all, but the “dry eye” ad hosted by Jennifer Aniston is SO serious, SO reflective, that I honestly wondered if she was part-owner of the company. WHY would she do a “dry eye” ad, no matter how much it was a problem of her?

The I remembered: MONEY!

Smokey Robinson's The Soul Is In The Bowl

“The Soul Is In The Bowl!”

Thanks for that Smokey Robinson, this just proved my point – celebrities have always been willing to endorse products – and since Smokey is a legendary singer, I look to him to guide my packaged food choices as well…especially when it comes to “down home pot roast” – and for a good night’s sleep, look no further than Raquel Welch:

Wacky Celebrity Endorsements!

Well, a Raquel Welch full body pillow that is! I don’t know who comes up with this stuff, but it must work!

Full disclosure: I am doing almost no research here: these are just pictures, found online, of wacky products that have been advertised by celebrities…why they did it is not my concern – it is only the inanity of the promotion itself thats worth sharing…so share I will.

Humphrey Bogart Candy ad

As you can see, this isn’t anything new: even legendary Humphrey Bogart shilled – in this case, for a nice box of chocolates.

And her’s another one of America’s greatest Actors – well, at least when it comes to staying in shape:

Sylvester Stallone High Pritein pudding

It makes sense that Stallone would promote a fitness product – you know, like PUDDING, but another healthy guy, Hulk Hogan, seems to have gone in a different direction altogether:

The Wacky World Of Celebrity Endorsements!

I guess The Hulk needs to do some carbo-loading, so why shouldn’t you?

As you can see, celebrities have endorsed all kinds of things, and you can draw your own conclusions as to their motivation:

DiCaprio Japanese whiskey ad

This seems to have been the inspiration behind “Lost In Translation”, the brilliant film where Bill Murray is an action star who travels to Japan to do a whiskey ad…nothing wrong with making a few bucks, and there are a lot of celebrities doing just that:

Tara Reid product endorsement

Dwight Yoakam's chicken ring ad

Ozzy Osborne I Can't Believe Its Not Butter Ad

Wait, wait, wait, WHAT? Can that be real? Apparently so, but again, who knows what motivates a celebrity like Ozzy Osborne to stand behind the wonders of fake butter.

Speaking of food, there is also a subset of people online who seem to find celebrities EATING to be a fascinating image to share:

Robert Plant Ice Cream

Don’t ask. SERIOUSLY, DON’T ASK. I have no idea why there is a photo of Robert Plant eating messy ice cream cone. but it exists, along with many, many others…

Click here to see more of those wacky photos!


Let me know which of these is your favorite!

  1. What fun post, John! Somehow I can’t picture Bogard and a box of chocolates. Selling Lucky Strikes, yes.

  2. I agree that new eyelove ad is almost embarrassing.. you think there’s going to be some deeply serious problem she’s been bearing alone all these years.. and it’s dry eyes??

  3. Hand on heart, I can honestly say that I have never bought a product BECAUSE it was endorsed by a celebrity. In some cases, it has really put me off buying something that I just know they would never use/eat/ wear/drive or be seen dead buying themselves.
    What was Smokey thinking of? (Oh yes, the money…)
    Best wishes, Pete.
