5. Cameron Diaz for SoftBank Mobile
These SoftBank Mobile commercials are utterly mystifying to me. What are they attempting to say about the service? That you can walk while using it? That sometimes you will drop things if you do that? Whatever the message is, Cameron Diaz sure seems to be delivering it enthusiastically.
6. Mr T. for World of Warcraft
Not the most obscure celebrity tech ad, but still one of the best. By the way, Mr. T is apparently pretty good with computers, since WoW now includes Night Elf Mohawks in the game.
7. Leonardo DiCaprio for Telecom Italia
This ad teaches us the classic lesson that while nature is pretty good, Leonardo DiCaprio and mobile phones are much, much better.
8. Andy Warhol for TDK
Although it may seem weird to see an artist doing ads for an electronics company, take a moment to consider how especially weird the ad itself is.
9. Brad Pitt for SoftBank
Here's another celebrity ad with not just a famous actor but also a famous director. Spike Jonze put together this SoftBank clip with Brad Pitt that, despite its oddness, is at least more comprehensible than the Cameron Diaz ad.
10. Chuck Norris for Czech T-Mobile
This final ad is part of a series of Czech T-Mobile ads that Chuck Norris did on the strength of his tough-as-nails, Internet-meme persona.
While these may be the weirdest celebrity tech ads for now, stay tuned--a whole new generation of celebrities is growing up, ready to continue the tradition. I bet Justin Bieber is preparing to record an ad for Sony Japan as we speak.
