Everybody has to start somewhere.
All jobbing actors and actresses have to do the obligatory commercial or two, it’s more or less a given. Then when you make it and become an A-Lister, you can command millions for a brief appearance in a Japanese commercial for noodles.
Brad Pitt caught an early break in this a Pringles ad, and it turns out that once you pop you really can’t stop. Some class this as the role that helped him to superstar status, Brad classed it as paying the rent.
Keanu Reeves fine tuning his Neo moves in a Corn Flakes commercial.
Seth Green with a bizarre hair cut in this ad for Nerf.
Morgan Freeman might be an Oscar winner now, but where would he have been without the career boost this Listerine commercial gave him.
Bruce Willis singing for Seagrams, nobody knows why.
Ben Stiller flogs a Japanese soft drink.
Jodie Foster in this recent commercial for Honda Civic.
Last but by no means least, another choice offering from the vast back catalogue of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s work. I still don’t know what’s going on in this commercial, but I know I want to see a full length movie version with Arnie as this character.
Until next time.
