7 Of The Weirdest Celebrity Endorsements

We’ve all been a little tight for money, perhaps needing another job to cope with the financial demands of everyday life. But look at the lengths that these celebrities have gone to get that little bit of extra cash on the side. Here are our top 10 weirdest celebrity endorsements! They range from being a little bit awkward to the down-right bizarre…

7. 50 Cent On QVC

To kick off the list we have 50 Cent who has been in the headlines recently for his financial woes. In the toughest times he starred in this rather uncomfortable promotion of his self-branded headphones (perhaps trying to follow in the foot steps of Dr Dre) on QVC. QVC is a shopping channel that is usually aimed at middle-aged women, mothers and a rather different demographic to 50 Cent’s following. Which is why it was a little bizarre when he appeared on the channel looking a little coy and joking (slightly uncomfortably) along with the presenter!

6. Ozzy Osbourn Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!

In 2006, well-known British Rockstar, Ozzy Osbourn starred in this hilarious ad for a butter-substitute company ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter’. At Shareagift we love to see famous rockstars chilling out at home making fairy cakes.

5. Johnny Rotten Loves Great Butter

British rockstars just seem to love butter! Here we see Johnny Rotten, well-known for his anarchist shenanigans with the revolutionary punk band Sex Pistols, promote nothing other than good ol’ British butter. This is really ‘cream’ of the crop!

4. Andrew WK And His Fresh N Sexy Wipes

Next up: Andrew WK promoting what can only be described as ‘Sanitary Wipes’ (slightly NSFW). Andrew is mostly well known for his hardcore partying ways and his hit single ‘Party Hard’ which has over 8 million views on Youtube. If you give the video a watch, you’ll understand the irony of his endorsement of the product ‘Fresh N Sexy’… Just take a moment to enjoy the hilarity of his campaign photos.

3. Ronaldo Snacks On Finger Lickin’ Chicken

Professional athletes usually have pretty intense training and diet regimes but we wouldn’t usually associate the 780 calorie (per serving) chicken dish as a casual post-game snack. Although Ronaldo would like to lead you to believe otherwise…

2. Ronaldo Likes A Toned Face

Another one from the three-time Ballon d’Or winner is this facial exercise ‘aid’. For those trying to tighten up those chubby cheeks (after a few family buckets at KFC), a quick bounce with the MTG product will help you on your way to looking chiseled and perfectly sculpted. And you won’t even look stupid whilst doing it.

Nick’s friends buy him SXSW ticket with Shareagift!

“Nick Such is one of the nicest guys you’ve ever met”.

These are the touching words of Nick’s best buddy, Brian. Nick it seems, is one of those guys who’s always just doing something nice for his friends – the veritable unsung hero. So Brian decided to get all his friends together and use Shareagift to give Nick something he’d really love. Not for his birthday, not for Christmas – just for being an awesome guy.

This year Nick was planning to go to the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, but didn’t have the budget for the pass. When Brian found out that Elon Musk, Nick’s life-long hero, was keynoting the event, he knew he had to find a way to get Nick there.  So he created a Shareagift Page and got all Nick’s friends together in secret to collect the funds so he could go.

(For those of you who may not know what I’m on about, SXSW is an awesome music/film/interactive festival held each year in Austin, Texas. It. Is. Very. Cool.)

In just 10 days fourteen of Nick’s friends had chipped in and reached their $995 target to buy his pass. They gave it to him together last week and he was absolutely thrilled, posting to Twitter to say, “Every once in a while I’m reminded that my friends and family are awesome! Actually I’m reminded of this everyday. #Thank you”.

Brian gave us some ace feedback saying, “The platform worked great.  It was easy to setup and share with friends.  It’s a great concept and allows you to give larger gifts by sharing the burden with a group”.

And Nick very sweetly wished us all the best with Shareagift, saying “It’s already changing my life!” (Nick – we might be slightly in love with you ;))

We hope you have a brilliant time at the festival (for which read: We’re all horribly jealous and want to come with you). Brian, you and your friends are the real heroes of the story for us – now we just have to find ourselves an equally awesome bunch to send us there as well!

Emma Wing Walks for her birthday using Shareagift

Hold onto your hats girls, this is one seriously hair-raising Shareagift experience!

A few months ago we told you the story of  Emma, from London, who created a Shareagift Page for her 40th birthday to have the experience she’d always dreamed of – to go wing walking!

Well, we always suspected she was a little crazy to want to do it, but she did it, she was absolutely brilliant, and we were there to watch. Enjoy!
