I heard A list celebrities are known for doing foreign commercials since: a) they will never be seen by anyone in the North American movie goer market and b) they are meant to be very lucrative. Still, I was very surprised to stumble across this Brad Pitt SoftBank commercial.
You would never see someone as big as Pitt plugging a product over here, but over there, it’s fair game apparently. Not that I find anything wrong with celebrity endorsements; in fact, this Brad Pitt SoftBank commercial is just one of a series he did that is quite humorous and pretty well filmed. Now let's see if I can find George Clooney promoting a Japanese energy drink.
The Brad Pitt SoftBank Commercial is a Hearty Serving of Hilarity
