---Drew Brees is endorsing a new motorcycle, even though his NFL contract says he can't RIDE it.  So today's theme is dumb celebrity endorsements.

1.  Hulk Hogan once tried to steal business from George Foreman with a product called the Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill.
Yes:  But it didn't sell well, and then there was a story in 2008 about how it might be a FIRE HAZARD.  Also, Hulk once said the Foreman Grill people originally came to HIM for an endorsement.  But he ended up slapping his name on a blender instead.

2.  Snoop Dogg once did an ad for a mobile phone company in Germany, where he played a lounge singer who climbed out of some guy's refrigerator and started singing.
Yes:  It was in 2008 for a company called VybeMobile. 
(Watch the ad here.)
3.  In the mid-80's, Madonna did a lipstick ad in France where she kissed 50 different guys in less than 30 seconds.
B.S.  We made that one up.  just SOUNDS like something she did in 80's.
4.  Julia Roberts did a coffee ad in Italy where all she did was take a sip, smile, pretend to laugh, and then wink.  And she reportedly made over a million bucks for it.
Yes:  It was for a company called Lavazza.  (Watch it here.)
5.  Tommy Lee Jones did a series of ads in Japan where he played an alien who was visiting Earth DISGUISED as Tommy Lee Jones.
Yes:  You can watch a seven-minute montage of them on YouTube.
