Perhaps I watch a LOT of TV, but I find most of the commercials annoying!
A trend as of late is to recycle old has-been stars and put them into a commercial.
Without further ado, here are the types of commercials has-been celebrities are in when their careers are just about over.
Cash 4 Gold Ads
Or any ad that wants your gold.
Remember Ed McMahon? The Star Search King?
Well, now he’s a shady Gold peddler.
Guess who else is in that video? MC HAMMER! Talk about a has-been who ironically doesn’t have that Midas touch.
World of Warcraft
Yet another has-been: Mr. T. Like I’m going to play World of Warcraft just to play with a mo-hawk head? Pullleaase.
And you’re not off the hook either Ozzy. You’re done too.
Money Lending Scams (err, commercials)
Remember Rusty Wallace and his annoying advertisements for US Fidelis (which is pretty much out of business now for anti-consumer practices)?
Apparently he is also sponsored by Loanmax Title Loans. Can you spell shady? Here’s a quick video.
Next up is Montel Williams. Here’s another geezer trying to push high-interest payday loans.
C’mon Montel, we’re not fooled. Quit trying to get us deeper into debt in our troubled economy.
Weight Loss Commercials
Unless you’re Oprah, you can’t pull this type of commercial off. Just ask Kirstie Alley.
Too bad she didn’t lose any weight and ballooned even more.
Sorry, Kirstie. You’re career is over! I personally don’t ever want to see you wear a bathing suit again! It’s like watching my grandmother undress.
Would You Like Some Yogurt?
Jamie Lee Curtis was good in True Lies. And after that…? Oh yeah, Activia!
I personally get disgusted when females talk about “irregularity”, but the yogurt is actually pretty good. Too bad the commercials aren’t.
Jamie, I’m sorry to see you go.
Ah, Sally, That’s Where You Went!
I’ve missed Sally Field since her last memorable performance in Forrest Gump. Now she’s back on the scene with her advertisements for a prescription medicine named Boniva.
So sorry Sally. We liked you, we really did like you.
You Appear in a Hanes Commercial
Michael Jordan? Retired. Charlie Sheen? In jail. Need I say more?
That’s all I got! Any types of commercials I miss?
