Jennifer Aniston has been quite the jokester on some of her big screen debuts, and apparently she uses the same wit for her endorsements. Aniston's summer 2012 Smartwater endorsement had fans slapping knees as she took on a faux belly, carrying triplets, for her role in the advertisement.

Ali was quite the catch for advertisers in the 1970's with his face selling thousands of anything, including roach repellant. Muhammad helped D-Con sell huge amounts of roach traps and those same bucks just might be circulating back into Muhammad's account today. Rumor has it those Ali's boxes are now going for thousands!

Brad Pitt may be all man, but a lot of us were left in a stupefied trance as to how he landed his latest endorsement with popular women's perfume line, Chanel No.5. Seriously, he is a man right? Precisely, but that hasn't stopped one of People's Magazine Sexiest Men Alive from appearing in nationally advertised commercials and billboards. Talk about glass ceilings!

Guess Nelly wasn't kidding when he said, "She only want me for my Pimp Juice!"

Heidi Klum is beauty and brains, and she can whip up a good batch of candy too! Klum's Fruit Flirtations, are fat free gummy snacks made for those less inclined to saturated fats. Although they were originally only available in Europe, Klum tried to expand to the U.S., but did not gain very good feedback. The snacks do continue to sell well overseas. -Alexis Webb
