Watch Celebrities in Weird Foreign TV Commercials

Once upon a time it was possible for Hollywood (and other) celebrities to refuse to do TV commercials for the American market due to their "principles," while at the same time taking beaucoup money to do commercians for Japanese TV. Why not? Before this internet thing came along, it was very, very difficult for anyone outside Japan to see those ads.

But now, through the magic of YouTube, those weird celebrity commercials done for overseas markets are pretty easy to find. Why, right here, right below, is a compilation of some of them!

In the following video you'll see the likes of Daniel Day-Lewis, a very weird Nicolas Cage (redundant?), Hugh Laurie, Uma Thurman, Arnold Schwartzenegger, Leonardo DiCaprio and more doing some selling and shilling.
