    American Stars in Japanese Commercials

    Many American and British stars who wouldn't deign to do commercials in this country have filmed ads for Japanese products. Some are fairly standard and boring, but most are incredibly weird and very funny.

    You can watch them here using a QuickTime player.

    The Simpsons and Arnold Schwartzenegger did some really weird ads, but Nicolas Cage's commercials for pachinko are utterly hilarious.

    They get paid well - and most of the commercials never see the light of day here in the USA so it doesn't look like they are "selling out"...
