Heh heh, just kidding, my man. Perhaps a smiley was warranted ...

So anyway, what am I supposed to do with this 'ScottMate' tattoo I just got?

So long as it doesn't include the words "Property of", wear it with pride.

Well look at it from this perspective.

You don't see Whoopi Goldberg giving commercials about skin care, or Patrick Stewart giving a Nike shoes commercial. That is how far from gaming Paris Hilton is. And how about this for the game cube?


You know, this really reminds me of the 70,000 horny males in E3, and all the booth babes that didn't know how to hold a controller

I've seen Roy Scheider and Elton John in Orange commercials (SJH linked to them some time ago). The trend of making ads that bear no relation to the product in question is actually a pretty strong one. It's not much different than hiring seemingly unrelated celebrities (which can actually be a rather smart move when trying to attract new customers).

I don't even know who that is...

Also, you have NO idea how rampant American celebrity endorsements are in Japan. They make excellent money over there and we here in the States know next to nothing about it.

There was a funny bit on the Daily Show about Bush advertising sea-weed salsa on Korean TV.

I love that movie so much.

The best japanese Hollywood celebrity ads are definitely Sean Connery's whiskey ads, Harrison Ford's Kirun Lager Beer ads and of course Arnold Schwartzenegger's really, really weird ads.

I've saved all those ads to my harddrive, they are pure gold.
