Celebrity Advertisements Part 2 James Brown, Bryan Cranston and Ben Affleck.

‘Mi Soupa ,Missa me soup’- music to my ears.

Here for your viewing is Mr. James Brown in all his ‘I feel Good’ glory advertising Miso soup.   It makes me chuckle every time I see it.  I wonder how he must have felt when he read the new lyrics of his famous song ‘I feel good’ customized to promote Japanese soup?

I can only imagine that he did not feel so good but that this feeling was fleeting when he imagined his bank balance following being paid for said advertisement.


Even if you are not a fan of this brand surely you would be following seeing this?

Nobody can empathize with your hemorrhoids better than Bryan Cranston in the Preparation H advertisements.   Wait for it……Shall I? ………Here goes. He must have had piles of fun making this.

The year he made this advertisement must have been his annus horribillis.  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist) . Many would consider this type of ad would have rectum (wrecked him) but not Bryan Cranston.   He is a legend.

And finally, what about Ben Affleck in Burger King?

Gorgeous then and gorgeous now.   He could have advertised anything in my book and still be perfect as ‘Good Will Hunting’ is one of my all-time favorite movies.   It’s hard to believe that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon wrote this script out of sheer frustration of being overlooked for casting in Hollywood.

They both auditioned for the role in ‘Primal Fear’ that went to Edward Norton. When they did not get the role, they wrote ‘Good Will Hunting’.   They turned despair and frustration into success. What a duo?

All the best

Stay fab
