Brad Pitt, Bryan Cranston, Tina Fey and more 'slebs looking like complete morons before they were famous? Cool. Let's watch.
Here are some of today's best known and well-respected actors in The Ultimate "Before They Were Famous" Celebrity Commercials Compilation, from the guys over at World Wide Interweb.
Gotta love the fact that those poor A-listers probably thought that these tapes had been dead and buried for years, only to be resurrected by yours truly! And I cannot believe how much some of them have changed.
I mean, let's recap from some of the best...
Brad Pitt for Pringles
Good for Brad, getting as much junk food and as many babes in as he could back then. Because, let's face it, there's no way on God's organic Earth that Mrs. Brad Pitt - the wonderful Angelina Jolie - lets any salt, fat, questionable hairstyles or other beautiful women into the confines of their shared home.
Bryan Cranston for Shield Soap
Cranston doing commercials for haemorrhoids and deo soap seems absurd now, right? But I guess just like Shield's tagline - "Shield works when others quit" - also applies to the Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad star, who pushed himself through bad 80s TV until he finally got his big break.
Tina Fey for Mutual Savings Bank
Like many of us, apparently Tina had a bit of an awkward phase in the mid-1990s. In fact, she looked like one of Seinfeld's girlfriends. Still, I'm guessing that it's stints like this one that made 30 Rock sketches like Liz Lemon's 1-900-OK-FACE sex line commercial possible.
Aaron Paul for Kellogg's Corn Pops
Before Aaron got real big, he was advertising cereal. So, his was a jump from breakfast cereal, to TV serial. Or something... He seems to have kept the angsty teen tearaway vibes going, though.
Sarah Michelle Gellar for Burger King
Back in 1981, long before she started kicking vampire ass, Sarah starred in Burger King's first TV ad campaign, adorably calling out McDonald's for having small hamburgers. McDonald's retaliated by suing Burger King, naming Sarah as part of the problem, and - until this day - the Buffy star hasn't stepped foot under the Golden Arches (probably to the advantage of her cholesterol levels... Just saying).
