Celebs in ads: Angelina! Hugh Laurie!
Tired of hitting the replay button at Japander.com? Here are three more commercials to help you get your masters in procrastination this afternoon:
–Angelina Jolie for Shiseido (pictured, via PopBytes): To steal a classic line from American Beauty, “Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in.”
–Hugh Laurie for Polaroid (from back in the day): Oh, House, what are you doing taking a photo of that noisy floral arrangement? Don’t worry, though, I’m not mad at ya.
–Damian Young (The Comeback‘s Marky-Mark Berman) for Washington Mutual: Okay, so here’s reason No. 1,763 that somebody — anybody! — needs to give The Comeback a second season. One of its most subtly effective cast members has been relegated to supporting-player status in a series of bank-services ads. (He’s the one yelling, “Are you mad?”) All together now: “I don’t need to see that!”
