In their homeland, big-time American actors pretend that doing commercials is somehow beneath them. But when we're not looking, they run over to Japan and push product for whatever company is willing to give them large bags of money. Yep, that's how they pay actors in Japan. But who can blame the actors? They would get endlessly mocked by their passive-aggressive fanbases if they did ads at home. In Japan they can shill and keep their star power. Apparantly the Japanese are so fixated with American stardom that they will buy anything that's presented next to a famous face. Like, for instance, Bruce Willis gasoline.
