Terrible celebrity endorsements: What Lara Bingle, Snoop Dogg and Mr T have in common

From Z-grade "celebrities" like our very own Lara Bingle, to multimillion dollar stars like Snoop Dogg, it seems some celebrities have no shame -- as long as they get paid.

Vinnie Jones and Bacardi Rum



This British footballer-cum-actor has made a living out of seriously harming people, both on and off the field. His rap sheet on the field includes being sent off 12 times in his career, as well as holding the record for the quickest ever booking in a football match (three seconds), grabbing Paul Gascoigne's testicles and injuring another player so severely it eventually caused him to retire. His off the field rap sheet is just as bad — he's been convicted of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, criminal damage, air rage, and a misdemeanour assault in which he allegedly headbutted a patron in a bar. However Bacardi obviously thought highly enough of Jones to commission him to do an advertisement for the company. It was pulled off the air shortly after his arrest for air rage, in which he allegedly slapped a fellow passenger 10 times and threatened to have the cabin crew murdered.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
