Shaquille O’Neil Stars in Chinese Beer Commercial [VIDEO]
While you won’t see many A-list celebrities appearing in American commercials, it’s a not-so-well-kept secret that big time stars will accept big time payday’s (in some cases $1 million for one day’s work) to appear in commercials overseas. According to an ABC News report back in January, Brad Pitt has appeared in 31 Japanese commercials alone.
Granted, Shaquille O’Neil is not an “A-List” celebrity, nor is he a stranger to television commercials, most recently starring in a campaign for the Icy Hot Patch. But those commercials are no where near as wacky as this one for some type of Japanese beer. You can’t understand a word, but you don’t really need to. The premise is that two buddies are finishing up a game of one-on-one, when they leave the court to grab a beer, they notice there’s only one left. They decide to play one more game, with the winner getting the ice cold liquid gold. But before they start playing, each has a little trick up their sleeve.
If you don’t have a strong desire to drink right now, then something is wrong with you.
