Chuck Norris endorses the "Total Gym" machine. Does he actually use it himself? If you beleive the TV ads, he does. But who honestly knows for sure. Actors and other TV/Sports personal have, for decades, been paid to 'flog' products.

Personally, I think there should be a blanket ban on all celebs, sports personalities etc., etc., from flogging products. It's all BS.

Yup - I was just going to say this.
An end to "Celebrity" endorsements and "Influencer" adverts would make for a cleaner world.

Agreed. Can we also add political endorsements to this as well.

I`m in the Romanian market, quite a young one and i can tell you celebrities sell even s*it :) Over here most of the well-known figures are already into sports/casino betting promotig. I wonder what will happen if ONJN (Romanian Gambling Office) will take such a measure.

lmfao. They work great. Charles Barkley did great (in my opinion) for Draftkings. Now, they have Michael Jordan on board. These days, Youtube/Tiktok/Twitch Celebrities/influencers are a pretty big deal.
