Advertisers around the world are in love with using big-name celebrities and rock musicians to sell their products. They are definitely fine, fine, fine. Their facial expressions and some classy scripts combined with the strangest products and a couple of adorable lines make them completely memorable and cheesy at all. We look back at These Musicians Who Sold The Strangest Products:
Bob Dylan – Victoria’s Secret
Today we remember one of his most talked-about provocations, when, to everyone’s surprise, he decided to star in a commercial for the luxury underwear brand “Victoria’s Secret”. And it turns out that he had already warned us. It was in 1965 when Bob Dylan told a journalist at a press conference that if it was ever sold to a commercial interest, it would be to promote “Ladies garments”, that is, “women’s garments.”
KISS – Cologne
Kiss Her Perfume by Kiss, This bold and rebellious perfume is characterized by a unique blend of floral notes and fresh spices. Hints of lily and orchid are balanced by the unexpected wood of leather and mahogany, while the sweet scent of fig leaf keeps this fragrance delicate and feminine. A final touch of pepper adds another layer of complexity that makes it the ideal perfume for a woman who is not afraid to stand out.

Ozzy’s ad reads like this: “Today marks the 37th Anniversary since I bit a head off a f*cking bat! Celebrate with this commemorative plush with detachable head.”

The ad was recorded in 2008 and some sources say that he pocketed over 7 and a half million dollars for it. An ad that was tailored to the Rotten, who comes out dressed in tweed and eating toast with butter. it has no waste:
The Rolling Stones – Microsoft Windows 95
26 years ago, Microsoft launched Windows 95 on the market, and it did so based on a huge marketing campaign, which included ads set to the score of Start Me Up by the Rolling Stones (a title that served as a reference to the start button).
