Here's What Happened To Famous People From Commercials

Commercials have been an integral part of our culture since the advent of TV and radio. There's a reason why Super Bowl commercials are almost as anticipated as the actual football game. Sometimes an ad line or specific promotional campaign just seems to land in a perfect, timeless way.

Whether it's Wendy's iconic "Where's the Beef?" campaign, or a new beer ad with the hottest celebrity, commercials have a way of ingraining themselves in our pop culture - even more so than some movies or TV shows.

So what happened to the famous faces from some of the most memorable advertising campaigns? You'll be surprised to learn where these actors are now.
