Celebrity endorsements are something that we’ve all come to expect, after seeing countless actors and singers trying to sell us a huge range of products in commercials. Despite the fact that we might not want some of the hottest public figures telling us what to buy, an endorsement can certainly make sense for those involved. Companies are able to get extra publicity by having the name and image of someone famous attached to their product. Meanwhile, the celebrities themselves are handsomely paid for what usually is very little work. It’s a win-win situation.
You might have seen the episode of Friends where it is revealed that Joey once starred in a Japanese commercial, but it turns out that some celebrities actually have done just that. Miranda Kerr, the famous Australian model who has worked most prominently with Victoria’s Secret, appeared in a commercial for Lipton Iced Tea in Japan. Not only did she appear in the footage but she also poorly lip-synched along to a catchy jingle sung entirely in Japanese.
