Japanese Commercials with US Celebrities

Many of America's biggest celebrities avoid advertising to preserve their perfectly marketed Hollywood image, but apparently when they visit Japan, all bets are off! Japander is a wonderfully cool website that has a video archive of some truly amazing ads featuring celebs that you'd think you'd never see. Give 'em a look and make sure you see some truly inspired examples featuring Nicolas Cage extolling the virtues of Pachinko, and Arnold Schwarzenegger in some truly batshit insane works of art.

Remember Steven Seagal and his local Tanduay rhum commercial. It was tanduay, right?

And to those who don't know who that guy is, that's Rick Astley. If you were as old as me, you'd remember him.
