Hollywood celebrities have been crossing the Pacific to make commercials in Japan for decades. It's a quick, easy way for celebs to make a buck without harming their reps back in the States, thanks to secrecy clauses that prevent Japanese companies from disclosing the endorsements.

But with the success of YouTube and similar sites, many of these commercials are now available worldwide on the Web. The spots make for hilarious viewing, and you can be sure the stars are laughing all the way to the bank.
