Rejected By Cracked: If Historical Figures Endorsed Modern Products

June 16th, 2011 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Snubbed by Cracked…TWO DAYS IN A ROW! This contest challenged us to show what it would be like if historical figures did product endorsements. You can search out Cracked’s contest on your own if you’d like to see them (Including the “historic figure” Elvis Presley) but these were the ones that were unjustly ignored…

For those of you who don’t visit Cracked often, these people are in love with Teddy Roosevelt. He is the Chuck Norris of Cracked.com. Which is why he would be the most interesting man in the world, right? Makes sense. Unfortunately, everyone and their mom made a Teddy entry. The one of the only historical figures who was used more was Adolf Hitler…which lead me to create this…

Technically Jesus was actually used more than Hitler and Teddy…but I figured a picture with Jesus and Hitler might offend a lot of people who wouldn’t take a second to appreciate the context.

Do you know how hard it is to find a picture of Neil Armstrong that people will recognize? It’s impossible. I had to Photoshop the moon landing in the background just so people could tell who he was. But still…that is a great joke!

It’s even harder to find a picture of Julius Caesar. (It’s almost like they didn’t even have cameras back then) So this is just some random chuckle head in a costume. But someone else posted a great pic of a Caesar stature holding a pair of Twix bars and the tagline said “Eat Two Brute.” Also genius! Neither got picked for the article. Cracked is a bunch of Caesar haters!
