Love how American superstars are too good for American commercials, but here's Pitt cashing in again in Japan. Used to be no one knew they did it, now the Tubes have exposed them. These easy paydays reveal the hollowness of the "artistic integrity" argument. Copyranter has some Tarentino print ads from Russia.And yes, whatever they paid him, it was too much.
He got aid too much regardless as his role added NOTHING to the commercial. I really spent almost a whole minute figuring out where the ad was going.They could have put any actor in that role and got the same effect.Terrible ad regardless.
Just noticed the video has been pulled from YouTube. Brad's people not happy, obviously.
