Bizarre Celebrity Endorsements

I just saw a local commercial for one of those clay shooting places.
Barbara Mandrel was standing there with a big ass shotgun/rifle cradled in her arms, talking about how her family spends quality time at this clay shooting place.

Ooookay, whatever you say Barbara.

Also, she had gone a little crazy with the eyeliner and false eyelashes, it was scary.

Well, I’ll be honest with you – if I were trying to decide which skeet establishment to patronize…

Nope, my imagination isn’t that good.

Rick Bayless is a nationally renown chef with two award winning restaurants (Frontera Grill and Topolobampo) in Chicago. He’s written cookbooks, has his own television show, and his own line of salsas.

This past week I saw him in a national ad campaign pitching for Burger King. I’ve now lost all respect for Chef Rick.

Samuel L Jackson did some ads for a bank/insurance company/investment group kind of thing in the UK. I find it hard picturing Jules opening up a savings account.

I’d like to see Pamela Anderson as spokesperson for Hickory Farms. Her slogan could be, “Nobody smokes more meat than me and Hickory Farms!”

:smiley:


She told me she loved me like a brother. She was from Arkansas, hence the Joy!

Roland Gift, lead singer of the Fine Young Cannibals, does adverts for an Internet banking service down here.

I’ve always been a bit creeped out by Bob Dole and Viagra, and Florence Henderson and Polydent.

In France recently, I saw Ben Affleck hawking shampoo.

We won’t hit bottom until O J Simpson starts selling Ginzu knives.

Kobe Bryant pitches Nutella, a hazelnut and cocoa spread.

“Kobe’s favorite” – with a picture of Kobe – appears on every jar.

Or at least it did until recently … my latest purchase of this yummy spread didn’t have his picture on it.

I wonder why?

Barbara Mandrell is into guns in a major way. She has a firing range at her house (or did anyway).

There has been at least one Barbara Mandrell Limited Edition handgun. It was a target pistol but I don’t remember if it was air or a real firearm.
