Seven Seriously Tragic Celebrity Commercials
The state of Texas has bestowed upon this country many cultural delights: SXSW, phenomenal barbecue, and most importantly, Gary Busey. The man has the greatest set of teeth in history (they're perfect to Photoshop on sharks), and he's decided to use them to give back to the great state of his birth by starring alongside a guinea pig in a series of local Kia commercials.
These ads, which can only be described as "low-budget, high art" (or high farts, take your pick), can easily be perceived as embarrassing. But it's Gary "Sober stands for Son of a Bitch Everything's Real" Busey, and a not a respected actor who's won oodles of fancy acting awards, so the campy television spots are oddly charming. Rainbow seizures and all.
Still, not everyone is blessed with Busey's unique brand of crackisma. So when other celebs attempt to serve up equally horrific platters of visual cheese, they fail. And we giggle.
So, have you laughed today? If not, peruse our picks for the most embarrassing celebrity commercials of all time. Self-respect not included.

But have you ever seen her Porcari Sweat ad? No? It's possibly more
humiliating than marrying a dude who's forever associated with having
pervy fun-times with domesticated rodents. So, unleash your inner
asshole and give the following video a mouse, or rather, a gerbil click.
We pity the fool who don't buy a Flavorwave Turbo.
