Top 10 Celebrity Commercials

This is a list of ten commercials made by celebrities before they attained fame. Some are bad, some are mediocre, but none are good! Here is the list of top 10 celebrity commercials.

10. Elijah Wood Pizza Hut

I don’t think Elijah has grown much since making this commercial. The best part is when he throws a pile of what appears to be mashed potatoes in his sister’s face!

9. Jodie Foster McDonald’s Commercial

Jodie doesn’t do much in this clip – but she is definitely there. I must say – the guy playing Ronald is a bit scary – how the hell did McDonald’s succeed as a company with a mascot like that?

8. Meg Ryan Aim Toothpaste

Here is a very preppy Meg Ryan lending her Aim mint to two friends. Ra ra ra!

7. Matt Leblanc Heinz Ketchup

Here we have a younger, but still cheesy, Matt Leblanc. Love the wink!

6. Keanu Reeves Corn Flakes

Can’t act now, couldn’t act then – it’s Keanu Reeves setting up a table for breakfast and having a sneaky nibble himself.

5. Leonardo DiCaprio Bubble Yum

Even as a kid Leonardo DiCaprio had a very serious face. Here we see him comparing the bang from Bubble Yum with the beats from a boombox. Ah, the eighties.

4. Brad Pitt Pringles

My guess is that Brad was not chosen for this part for his acting skills.

3. Demi Moore Diet Coke

When Demi made this commercial, she had already starred in a few films, though the only truly notable one was St. Elmo’s Fire. Despite what I said in the first paragraph, this actually is quite a funny commercial.

2. Morgan Freeman Listerine

Despite the ad being very corny, Morgan Freeman is not all that bad here! Who would have known he would go on to such great things?

1. Bruce Willis Seagrams

Not only does Bruce Willis sing in this advert, he dances! Watch out for the ballet move at about -00:12.

Bonus: Sarah Michelle Gellar Burger King

Sarah Michelle Gellar is almost unrecognizable in this commercial.

LG’s quantum-dot TV gets real

LAS VEGAS – As promised, LG has unveiled its quantum-dot TV.

The UF9400, unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, is one of the first TVs to incorporate the tech, which is said to enhance color greatly.

The 65-inch TV is fundamentally an LCD panel, but it incorporates a layer of quantum dots, which are extremely small (as tiny as 20 atoms thick) “nanocrystals.” The size of the crystals determines the color of a pixel, and that size can be controlled precisely.

The result: extremely accurate color reproduction, potentially as much as 30% better than regular LCDs. Quantum dots are part of LG’s proprietary ColorPrime tech, which also boasts improved color at off-angle viewing – a recurring problem with many LCD sets.

And yes, the panel is 4K. The TVs Ultra HD resolution (3,840 x 2,160) has four times the pixels of a full HD panel, plus it’s equipped to handle 4K signals at 60p as well as the newer H.265 codec, letting you stream 4K video without choking your Internet connection.

LG’s webOS 2.0 smart TV interface and Harman Kardon speakers are also on board.

No price or release date yet.
