Bob Dole for Viagra
Why, Bob, why? In 1998, former Republican presidential candidate landed the best worst endorsement in history when he became the spokesperson for Viagra. In those days, commercials were not allowed to directly mention the drug they were talking about; that’s why all you see is the company name Pfizer and “ask your doctor.” The ad is perhaps a bigger loss for Dole than his 1996 election run against Bill Clinton. It’s one thing to lose the presidency, but your dignity?
Ozzy Osbourne for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
Metal rockers bring to mind only one thing when it comes to cooking. That’s right, margarine! Couple this disconnect with Osbourne’s trademark slurry speech, and you can imagine how much product this commercial did not sell. It’s surprising a food product wanted Ozzy’s endorsement anyway considering the thing he’s best known for biting is the head off a bat.
