Check Out the Worst Celebrity Super Bowl Commercials
February 1, 2014
Super Bowl Sunday means two things — football and commercials! And with the big game right around the corner, we're looking back at some of the worst celebrity Super Bowl commercials of all time.
Topping our list is Kevin Federline's Nationwide commercial from 2007. In the 30-second spot, Britney Spears's ex is surrounded by beautiful women and fancy cars in the faux rap video called "Rollin' VIP." But the high life is revealed to be a dream interrupted when Kevin's boss at the fast-food joint barks, "Federline, fries!" The campaign leaves viewers baffled, bewildered, and with little question about why Kevin's rap career flopped.
And then there's the Dirt Devil ad from 1997 that brought Fred Astaire back to life by using special effects. The legendary dancer, who died 10 years before the commercial was conceptualized, is seen cutting a rug with a red Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner. It might have been best to let this Hollywood royal rest in peace, but the ad continued to play for the rest of that year.
And in 2010, Charles Barkley starred in a Taco Bell commercial in which he tortured viewers with a poem, "Taco Bell Rocks," dedicated to the fast-food joint. The former NBA player recites his ode to the taco as he walks through the city-scape. The bizarre bit of poetry gave Dr. Seuss a run for his money and was stuck in viewers' heads for weeks!
