I agree I could care less what product some celebrity endorses. I'll complete my own research and then make a decision to purchase or not purchase a product.

If Foster Brooks wasn't such a drunk, he may have been able to get a hard on.


Foster Brooks wasn't a drunk. He played a drunk, but in reality he hadn't drank for years.

And, of course, the more exposure he gets, the more well known he is, the more he's worth to advertisers.

The problem with this is that, they may never actually use or like the product their advertising, they just getting paid to advertise it.

Or in a related sense, if they use a product from a company sponsoring them, it may not be the product you can buy in the store. It may be a special, highly customized item tailored specifically for them.

So even if the endorser has some relationship to the product, I don't take it at face value.

Jerry Miculek endorsing guns, ammo, gun parts... Yeah, I'll take his word for it.

Rusty Wallace, Kyle Busch want to talk to me about oil, auto parts, engines...
I'm all ears.

Some NBA, MLB, NFL star wants to pontificate about basketballs, how well under-armor works...
I'll listen.

But if any of them want to sell me insurance, talk about the benefits of a reverse mortgage, or what the best flea collar for my dog is...
Keep walking, cause I ain't buying.

When I saw this commercial of Gunny fawning over John Wayne, I realized R Lee Ermey had turned into a shameless huckster.



But I don't blame ex-mil guys like him or Bear Grylls. They can laugh all the way to the bank due to their larger-than-life screen personae. It's not as if they were committing Stolen Valor.

As soon as I saw Tiger Woods driving a Buick I knew that I had to have one. He's like a famous golfer, so I figured that I would be a great golfer if I had a Buick but I'm not sure that it worked. Wait...what kind of refrigerator does he have? Maybe that would make me better.

I'm a major Tom Selleck fan but I very much doubt he has a reverse mortgage.

I am 64, at this point in my life I pretty much know what I like and don't like. I couldn't care less about what some "celebrity" says about anything.

The reality is that I value the perspectives of people on Sigforum and a small number of other forums far more than any celebrity.

When I see a celebrity endorsement, I am surprised that the old fuck pushing the product is still alive. Good way for me to keep track of who is above ground still.
