Those poor Jersey Shore stars and their endorsement deal dramas. Allegedly, upscale handbag manufacturers paid the reality star to be seen carrying rival handbags instead of their own.

26) Sean Connery reluctantly does a foreign commercial for whiskey.

James Bond is a martini man (shaken, not stirred), but the actor who played him spent many years doing Suntory Whiskey commercials in Japan. The actor, not wanting to appear to be a sell-out, seems reluctant and bored in the commercials as if the gig is far, far beneath him.

27) Bruce Willis releases a "Die Hard" cologne.

The celebrity fragrance has been around for years. My mother was particularly fond of Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds, but was the world really crying for a Bruce Willis Die Hard scent?

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo could probably have his pick of endorsement deals. That’s why it’s so strange that he chose to participate in a campaign for a Japanese exercise product for building mouth muscles. It’s probably worth noting that the star never actually put the product in his mouth so he could avoid maximum embarrassment.

The fails just keep getting crazier…
