    You have to check some of these out. Especially the ones from Arnold Schwarzeneggar.
    Some are funny, some are weird but interesting to see none the less.
    Oh and don't forget to check out Harrison Ford's Japanese beer commercials either.

    Was Arnold auditioning for the role of Ultraman? That's the clip of him grinning, holding up a bottle. Don't know what it was about, but it sure looked strange...

    Ahnuld's DirecTV commmercials are the best
    Steven Segal advertising some kind of energy tea(featured on the site, he really does speak Japanese apparently)
    Charlie Sheen doing Parliament cigarettes
    Leonardo DiCaprio doing MasterCard

    For some reason they're just fine doing them for Japan, but always greatly frown on anyone finding out about them here

    Schwarzenegger dressed up like a reject from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band.......funny. He looked like he had taken one too many hits of the "Genki". No wonder they don't want anyone over here to know what they will stoop to in their yen for Yen.

    I remember hearing that Brad Pitt had everyone working on his Japanese commercials (forget the product) to sign something prohibiting them from talking about it. Or something like that.

    Rod Stewart doing Suburu commercials just doesn't enhence his rocker image.

    Brad Pitt did some ads for canned coffee - got a picture around here somewhere.

    My favorite was one from about 7-8 years ago done by Madonna. It was for a bottled water called 'Pure' - she had one line : "I'm Pure". F*cking cracked me up...

    Don't laugh at these folks - they need the money. 10-20 million per movie just doesn't go as far as it used to.[​IMG]
