Celebs in ads: Angelina! Hugh Laurie!

111319__jolie_lTired 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 somebodyanybody! — 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!"

    The video of Angelina has been removed! So quickly they figure things out…

    Michael, you’re halarious!
    I too noticed that Damien Young was on those silly WaMu (short version is even sillier)commercials.
    I met him in San Diego coming up from the nudie beach. I was on my way up, he was on his way down. I’m not sure if he was going to the nudie side or clothing side. The timing was perfect, it was the day after the season finale of The Comeback. I asked him then if he knew if the show had been picked up for a 2nd season but he didn’t know.

    So…how much longer do you figure we’ll have to hear about “The Comeback”. The DVD is already out, Lisa Kudrow just lost the Emmy (which she REALLY deserved!)and the show’s not coming back (shudder…Lucky Louie)…so how much longer?
    I mean, it was a funny show, but EVERY SINGLE DAY? If the show had maybe been “Arrested Development”-level genius, I could maybe accept it. But as far as I’m concerned, “The Comeback” references are starting to be over like “jank”. Slezak is still da man! But I can’t be the only one that feels this way, can i?

    see, Damian Young will always be Bus Driver Stu Benedict on the Adventures of Pete & Pete to me.

    Liked the Hugh Laurie clip…takes me back to when he was the go-to hapless/clueless guy for BBC comedies. No one did fatuous quite as well. People should see the 3rd season of “Blackadder” – then they’ll be even more impressed with what he pulls off on “House.”

    Please allow me to rant for a moment…One of the PHONIEST things in Hollywood to me is the A list actors who act so above commercialism in this country, yet they will shill for every perfume, alcohol or deodorant overseas for obscene amounts of money. Either take choice commercials everywhere, like Nicole Kidman, or have the integrity not to do them anywhere. However, I still wince when hear beloved songs as the latest jingles. I guess I’m just getting old.

    An ad with Mel Gibson as a cop asking for people to donate to an organization that helps families of fallen cops in L.A. is on the same page as the Hugh Laurie ad. Ha.
