1. Jerry Seinfeld and Microsoft

This endorsement fail can be attributed to none other than Bill himself. Turns out, it was his idea to bring Seinfeld into the mix, resulting in two really awkward commercials.

2. Mr T and the FlavourWave Oven Turbo

In 2008, Mr. T moved on to bigger and better things with the FlavourWave Oven Turbo. Promising to turbo cook all your favorite foods up to three times faster, he found his way back onto our televisions, but not into our hearts.

This one is going to leave you scratching your head. You've got to wonder why, Heidi, one of the most successful models in the world, would launch a fruit candy as a healthy snack simply because it was low-fat. And, what's more, it is packed with sugar and carbs. The candy — called Heidi's Fruit Flirtations — comes packaged in a bag that has a semi-creepy image of Heidi's face emblazoned on it.

While you thought Ben was simply starring in films, he was also selling alcoholic beverages on the other side of the world. Here’s one endorsement you may have never know existed. Well played, Ben.

6. The Kardashian Card

8. Kathy Lee Gifford And Wal-Mart

Two names that will never meet again. When Wal-Mart teamed up with Kathy Lee Gifford to promote her new clothing line, i'm sure they weren't expecting that Gifford's clothing line was, in fact, being produced at a sweatshop in Honduras by 13- to 15-year-old girls working up to 75 hours a week for 31 cents an hour.

9. Ozzy Osbourne And I Can't Believe It's Not Butter

Not exactly the first celebrity that you would think of when you think of butter. Perhaps Fabio would have been a better choice?
