10 Celebrity Spokespeople Who Will Pretty Much Endorse Anything -- No Matter How Weird!

Some super successful, crazy famous people -- like Jay Z and Eva Longoria -- have attached their names to some pretty random products

There's no such thing as easy money... unless you're a celebrity with an endorsement deal. Whether you're an athlete, musician or TV personality, big stars can rake in tens of millions of dollars just by associating their face and name with a product. Sometimes, the connection between the celeb and the product they're endorsing is obvious. (See: Heidi Klum and Victoria's Secret.) Other times, it can be a bit of a head-scratcher. And some celebrities seem like they'll endorse anything. We picked out 10 famous people who fall into that last category, and tracked down their weirdest and most surprising commercials. We also rated how likely we are to purchase the product they're shilling, on a scale from $ (not in a million years) to $$$$ (we're buying out the store!).

Heidi Klum

Weird endorsement:Yoghurt Gums candy

Likelihood we'll buy it
: $$
Maybe you have to be German to understand the appeal of a dessert called "yoghurt gum."
Other stuff Heidi has endorsed: Target; McDonald's; Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy; Victoria's Secret

Jay Z

Weird endorsement:The Duracell Powermat, a wireless phone-charging system

Likelihood we'll buy it
: $$$
Seems like a good idea, but we're not entirely convinced that when Jay Z runs out of battery power, he doesn't just buy a new iPhone.
Other stuff Jay-Z has endorsed: Reebok; an NBA video game; Cherry Coke; Budweiser Select; 40/40 Nightclubs; the Chrysler 300M

Eva Longoria

Weird endorsement: SHEBA cat food

Likelihood we'll buy it
: $
It's nice that this pet food inspires Eva to do sexy dances for her cat, but we're not sure this is something that's been missing in our lives.
Other stuff Eva has endorsed: Lay's potato chips; L'Oreal; LG Fashion Touch phones

Michael Phelps

Weird endorsement: Head & Shoulders

Likelihood that we'll buy it
: $$$$
Michael Phelps has 22 Olympic medals, so we're ready to take his word on anything swimming-related -- including what dandruff shampoo we should use in the pool.
Other stuff Michael has endorsed: Speedo, Subway, Rosetta Stone language learning software, Louis Vuitton

Kaley Cuoco

Weird endorsement: Proactiv

Likelihood we'll buy it
: $$
Many big celebs have endorsed this acne medication, but Cuoco is definitely the most effusive, calling it "the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life." We can't help but flash back to that hemorrhoid cream commercial she made on The Big Bang Theory...
Other stuff Kaley has endorsed: DISH network; Priceline; Toyota RAV4

Kim Kardashian

Weird endorsement: Skechers Shape-Ups

Likelihood we'll buy it
: $
Playing off of Kim's sex tape is an interesting way to sell sneakers, but do we believe for one second that she dumped her personal trainer for a pair of weird-looking shoes? Nope. Unfortunately, a lot of people did; Skechers is now paying out over $40 million for its "unfounded claims" that Shape-Ups would help people lose weight.
Other stuff Kim has endorsed: Bella colored contact lenses; TRIA hair removal system; Charmin toilet paper (tragically, she didn't make a commercial for this one)

Paula Deen

Weird endorsement: Schmitt Furniture

Likelihood that we'll buy it: $
"Honey, we need a new couch. Do you think that woman who makes the mayonnaise salads on The Food Network might have an opinion?"
Other stuff Paula has endorsed: Paula Deen isn't such a popular spokeswoman these days (ahem), but she's shilled for Wal-mart, Smithfield ham, Springer Mountain Farms chicken, Home Depot and Target.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino

Weird Endorsement: Teen abstinence

Likelihood that we'll buy it: $
We still can't believe this commercial happened.
Other stuff The Situation has endorsed
: Devotion protein-infused vodka; GNC vitamins; Reebok Zigtech shoes

Brooke Shields

Weird Endorsement: Latisse eyelash enhancer

Likelihood that we'll buy it: $$$
If it weren't for that creepy disclaimer ("There is potential for increased brown iris pigmentation, which is likely permanent"), we'd be all about having Brooke Shields' eyelashes.
Other stuff Brooke has endorsed: Coppertone Nutrashield; Colgate toothpaste; the Volkswagon Routan minivan; Tupperware

David Beckham

Weird Endorsement: Meiji Almond Crust chocolates

Likelihood that we'll buy it: $$$
Sure, we'll give the Japanese chocolate-almond candy a try. Though we have to say, this isn't nearly as effective as Beckham's underwear ads.
Other stuff David has endorsed: Samsung Galaxy phones; Adidas; Breitling watches; Sainsbury's supermarkets

Britney Spears

Weird endorsement: Toyota Vios

Likelihood that we'll buy it: $$
Would we go dancing with Britney Spears? Sure! But would we buy a car from Britney Spears? Honestly, we don't even know that we'd let her get behind the wheel.
Other stuff Britney has endorsed: CoverGirl; Sony; Pepsi; Candies
