ONTD Original: Ten Celebrity Endorsements that were certainly...a choice

Selling out is bound to happen in a celebrities career at some point. The question is, just how far will celebs go to make extra coins to maintain their lavish lifestyles while trying to maintain their dignity? 🤔 Sometimes they lose it long before ~in the Hollywood Hills — but a lot of times they lose it in the public's eye after an endorsement (but let's be real, most of the general public will laugh and then simply move on). As long as the check is cut, cashed, and in the bank several celebs simply don't care. Now I'm well aware that there are several out there but I had to narrow it down to ten here for time and sanity. So keep that in mind and let's take a look at a few celebrity endorsements that made us cringe, sometimes laugh, and were...a choice.

Mary J. Blige — “Burger King's Chicken Wraps”

Ok, let's get this one out of the way because I know people will bring it up in the comments asking where's Mary at? But let me make one thing clear, we're keeping the hateration, holleration in this dancerie to a minimum. You will respect Auntie Mary. She isn't just some OSCAR© Attendee, but she is a goddamn two-time OSCAR© Nominee. And that is something you will acknowledge and respect. Yes, we get it, fast food is gross, you only eat farm to table, drink lemon water, and people who recline their airplane seat in front of you suck etc. But don't look down at those who are occasionally rolling through the BK drive-thru in their Lyft or Uber drunk as hell looking for sustenance to get through and sober up. It happens. Maybe that's why the good sis Mary decided to do this, she's been there. Perhaps she had to fund some recording sessions or music videos, she has a mortgage! Cut Auntie Mary some slack. BK on the other hand, well, they should have known better.

Tori Kelly — “Nationwide Insurance”

The good sis Tori Kelly (Victoria Loren Kelly) is fairly new to the pop game. The singer auditioned for season 9 of American Idol in 2010 and made it through before being eliminated during Hollywood Week. But that didn't phase her, in 2013 she signed with Capitol Records and released her debut Unbreakable Smile peaking at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Despite the success with her debut, the good sis still has bills to pay! Nationwide is on her side in this advert for the insurance company.

Snoop Dogg — “Hot Pockets®”

Snoop Dogg decided to sell out back in 2012 and re-recorded his 2004 hit with Pharrell Williams, Drop it Like It's Hot into Pocket Like It's Hot for Hot Pockets®. I mean, at least go for the slightly more health concious Lean Pockets® Snoop! Yes, I'm aware they are the same company. But I digress...the man has a lot of weed to buy so this was probably his best bet to getting high af and then throwing back some free Hot Pockets during those midnight munchies.

Lady Gaga — “Polaroid”

Throughout Lady Gaga's career, the good sis has tried to blur the lines between music, art, fashion, and product. This ambition landed her the role of Creative Director of Specialty Products at Polaroid back in 2011. The result? A failed Grey Line GL20 Sunglass Camera. The sunglasses featured a camera that could take pictures and were stored in a USB in the earpiece. The product was never released and Polaroid and Lady Gaga parted ways in 2014.

Migos — “Rap Snacks: SC with a dab of Ranch Chips”

I mean, do I have to say anything? Just read this hot fire:

Money like bags of chips
Hunnits of bags I flip
Finger-licking with the ranch
Leaving crumbs on your lips
Truckload backin' up (beep)
New shipment, gotta stack 'em up (Takeoff)
Bag look magical
Mmm, mmm, mmm, good they smackable
Number one record, the chip breaking record so add it up
Trappin' 'em out the gas stations
Customers, customers lined up
I heard that you hungry and you make your mind up
Don't grab a Snickers and go get a bag of 'em
Bag of what? Dab of Ranch
What's with the ranch? Just a lil' dab

Cristiano Ronaldo — “Facial Fitness Pao”

We're not exactly sure what led Cristiano Ronaldo to do this. But are we honestly surprised? The Portuguese professional footballer teamed up with a Japanese brand for the Facial Fitness Pao, a device that basically looks like a mouthguard with propellers meant to strengthen your facial muscles. And it looks as ridiculous as you would imagine. Get ¥‎ bitch, I guess.

Kim Kardashian — “Flat Tummy Co's appetite suppressant lollipops”

The list of things the Kardashians aren't willing to endorse is...short to say the least. Case in point, Flat Tummy Co's “appetite suppressant lollipops” which Kim K just recently went under fire for promoting them in an Instagram post. The image promoting the lollipop remains up but she has since deleted the original text and replaced it with a simple 🍭 emoji.

The original post read, “You guys… @flattummyco just dropped a new product. They’re Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they’re literally unreal. They’re giving the first 500 people on their website 15% OFF so if you want to get your hands on some… you need to do it quick! #suckit

Brad Pitt — “Pringles® Chips”

To be fair, it was 1989 and Brad Pitt was still fairly unknown early on in his career when he decided to pay the rent by poppin' a can of Pringles for the camera. This was a young Brad Pitt during his catch me, I'm fucken swooning days. I mean, it was BeFour he even shot Thelma & Louise and way before he left the good sis Jen for Angelina. The two separated just last year after 12 years of marriage. Welp, have another can of Pringles Brad.

Lisa Rinna — “Depend® Silhouette for Women”

I mean, props to Lisa for going for it and not caring here. In the commercial, the American actress and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is attending a red carpet event when an interviewer for Depend® asks her if she would wear their new Depend® Silhouette for Women to show how discreet and sleek it is. She's a bit stunned at first, asking “are you serious?” She then looks to her husband before finally saying “sure, why not!” I hope you were paid upfront and handsomely, Lisa!

Ashton Kutcher — “Popchips”

Back in 2012, we're not exactly sure why or how Ashton Kutcher or anyone at Popchips thought this was even appropriate. Not only was this a choice, it was racist one. When will white folk ever learn? The backlash was immediate leading the potato chip company to delete the clip that featured the actor in brown-face makeup, pretending to be a Bollywood producer named Raj. While the company did apologize for the offensive ad, Kutcher never did.
