FridayQ: Endorsement

Which famous person do you think sold out the most to endorse a product? What’s the product?

Carol Vorderman for that loan company (you see, I can’t even remember the company). But there are many other examples – Linda Barker, Ben Miles and Michael Winner to name a few.

Which famous person do you think has the best celebrity endorsement for a product? What’s the product?

That’s kinda tricky as I’m not usually swayed by celebrity endorsements, or if I am I’m swayed the other way and probably less likely to buy the product. Maybe Melanie Sykes doing the Boddingtons adverts some years ago.

Which song do you think has best been used to endorse a product? What’s the product?

I really liked “Jerk It Out” by The Caesars and so it was cool to have Apple feature it in their iPod Shuffle advert.

FQ SPOKESMAN: Pair a famous person with a product endorsement that you think would be the perfect match!

Wayne Rooney with Burberry. Oh sorry, did I say that out loud? I do apologise.
