will you lie for money?

January 4, 2008 7:13pm CST
There are many celebrities who endorse shampoos, soaps, and other products on television commercials. I wonder if they really tried and used those products they have endorsed or they just in for the money? If you are one celebrity and you were offered to endorse for a product that you haven't really tried, used and you don't recommend but it's got a big sum of money for it, would you accept or would you not? Thanks

Look I am not a celebrity and will never be going to one in life. That is for sure.Now what one should do in that situation when you are given money to endrose a product that you are told to, depends on many things. It is a part of their business.

I'm sure that the celebrities are in it for the money, or they have been sweet talked into going along with the commercials! If I were a celebrity, and they convinced me their product was good, I would do the commercial! I would have to know for a fact, that it was really , really bad, that I wouldn't do a commercial!

Of course, these movie stars don't love the product like they say in the commercials. Of course they are doing it for the money and for the prestige. And in answer to your second question, yes I would do it for the money. I would do it and believe in it,or so people would think. They get paid a lot of money and what better way to earn a living. You would never have to do any other work. So what if you have to do a couple shoots a month.

Yeah, I would. As long as I'm sure that the product is not a threat in any way to a person's health, then I'm cool with it. If you also think of it, the celebrities might not be lying just for the money. Maybe they find a product that they don't actually need that could possibly benefit others instead, so they endorse it. We almost always believe what tv personalities say, so it could really get the product's point across to the consumers.
