Most successful actors in Hollywood have gone through the same struggles before they hit fame. They all worked a job they hated to make ends meet while they went on countless auditions and got countless rejections. At some point in their career, they took those an odd acting gigs that took place in someone’s basement, just to get some cash and a little exposure. After fame, fortune and Oscar nominations come their way, you would assume that that they no longer have to go back to the days where they have to do something ridiculous for some cash.

Here are six ridiculous celebrity Japanese commercials that we weren’t supposed to see. Thank you internets!
