Terrible celebrity endorsements: What Lara Bingle,...
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.
