Why do celebrities do it? Honestly, it just beggars belief that they would put themselves through such ridicule for something so pointless. Obviously there is a substantial amount of money involved but when you are a hugely successful Hollywood movie star, surely that extra bit of money is really not needed. We are talking about stars who do awful TV ads.
When you have had such a long and distinguished career as English actor Michael Caine, it does not really make sense that he would lower himself to do any sort of television advert, let alone an extremely terrible one. Michael Caine has appeared in some of the biggest and best movies in his career, working with some of the top names in the movie making industry.
Then there is the fact that Michael Caine has managed to bag himself two Oscar wins in his career. The first for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Hannah and Her Sisters, before then going on to win his second in the same category for Cider House Rules. So what exactly made him agree to do the new TV ad for Sky Broadband.
Those of you who have seen this advert will know exactly what we are talking about. It is poorly written, poorly acted and just boring, and that is us being polite. While we ask you to take a look at the ad in the video below, so that you can give us your views on it, we will not feel bad if you actually choose not to. In fact, you would be saving yourself 41 seconds of your life.
