Celebrities frequently lend their famous faces to endorse various different products. Whenever I notice that Jessica Alba wears a specific kind of mascara, it might make me much more likely to buy it.
But sometimes, celebrities will sponsor some really weird stuff! Justin Bieber, a 16-year-old boy, now has a line of nail polish! Ummm, what?? Although if you really think about it, I guess since the majority of his fan base is made up of pre-teen girls, it does make some sense. Plus, I’m sure they’re paying him a bunch of money.
So take a look at some of the strangest celeb endorsements and think about it. Are you more likely to buy a specific product because some famous person is in the commercial? Yeah, probably.
