13 Actually Pretty Funny Celebrity Commercial Appearances
Hmm, that was actually pretty funny. What a pleasant surprise. Look, we’ve all thrown a healthy (and warranted) amount of eye-rolls at a commercial’s feeble attempt at comedic relief. They took a stab at comedy, bless their copywriting hearts. An even tougher task was having famous people (who aren’t normally known for comedy) deliver the jokes. But, good on everyone involved, because the project elicited some audible chuckles!
When it comes to hawking products, comedy is right up there with sex appeal. Even the most straight-laced, white bread companies feel the need to equip their ads with a zinger. Heck, because of Geico, every insurance company is out there competing for the funniest possible commercials, and comedic actors are lining up around the block to be involved. For 99% of “funny” commercials out there, all any commercial actor needs to master is their awkward high five. It’s our era’s “slipping on a banana peel,” and, celebrity or no celebrity, it seems to be the only way to button a commercial. Not these diamonds in the rough though. These 13 celebrity commercial appearances were actually pretty funny.
