Advertising is so firmly entrenched in our lives that it is almost impossible to imagine modern television or the Internet without it. Many people sincerely believe in miracles or making a profit if a famous actor takes part in an advertisement. However, expectations are often deceived. Sometimes the stars even have to ask the audience for forgiveness for their participation in dubious projects.
The famous and beloved actress had a sad experience of filming in advertising for diet pills. The advertiser promised the buyers of the miracle pills to gain a slim figure, but later it turned out that these pills not only do not contribute to harmony, but also have an extremely negative effect on the work of the heart. Subsequently, the sale of these tablets was banned.

In 2012, the famous Russian tennis player signed a contract with a developer to begin construction of an elite residential complex in India. In addition to all the possible benefits of civilization, the developer promised home buyers in a unique house called Sharapova's Ballet the opportunity to study at a tennis school under the patronage of a tennis player.
Maria Sharapova has repeatedly visited India for advertising campaigns. A lot of people were attracted to advertising with the participation of a famous tennis player. But the construction of the residential complex did not start, although in 2016 the happy tenants should have already moved into their apartments.
On the initiative of one of the victims in India, a criminal case was opened on the fact of fraud, and the name of Maria Sharapova appeared among the accused. Sharapova herself refrained from commenting, perhaps she simply entrusted the proceedings to her lawyers.
The famous actress, after filming an advertisement for a health vitamin complex, categorically refuses to participate in any advertising campaigns. The reason lies in the fact that the vitamins advertised by Lydia Fedoseeva-Shukshina led to the death of a customer from Moscow. Naturally, accepting the proposal to shoot, the actress could not even imagine how harmful "harmless" vitamins would be.

Many treat this actress with respect and love, and therefore believe: the cosmetics advertised by her can really become a panacea for almost all ills. After all, the actress herself looks really younger than her years.
Elena Proklova, advertising a well-known cosmetic company today, with her participation immediately increased the confidence in this company. In fact, it turned out that after a free procedure, the visitors were fraudulently forced to purchase cosmetics from this company for a very substantial amount. Lack of money could not be an obstacle, since clients, succumbing to persuasion, signed loan agreements.
Despite the large number of claims against this cosmetic company, it still exists today, and its employees continue to force customers to purchase their products.
Vakhtang Kikabidze and Leonid Kuravlev
Both actors once advertised "unique" zirconia bracelets. On the screens, Vakhtang Kikabidze and Leonid Kuravlyov took turns telling viewers how bracelets helped them get rid of hypertension. However, in fact, it turned out that there is no practical benefit from the allegedly medicinal jewelry, it does not affect blood pressure in any way. Further scientific research has not been able to find any useful properties in zirconium.

Lolita Milyavskaya, Alexander Tsekalo and Sergey Minaev
Cabaret duet "Academy" and Sergei Minaev in the 1990s actively advertised the notorious financial pyramid "Khoper-invest". The founders and owners of the company were very active. They opened branches in almost all large Russian cities, and the prospect of receiving unimaginable income at that time attracted more and more depositors to Khoper-Invest. As a result, several million people suffered from the actions of the organizers.
The actress is still ashamed of her participation in the filming of an advertisement for the "Temple of Fate" center. In this institution, they allegedly removed damage and the evil eye, predicted fate and promised all sorts of benefits after contacting the "specialists" of the center. Natalia Fateeva regrets that, under pressure from circumstances, she agreed to participate in dubious advertising, because of which people who personally believed the actress could suffer.

The famous actor at one time often starred in commercials. He told the viewers from TV screens about a miraculous nutritional supplement that improves the functioning of the brain. At the same time, the actor, always conscientious about what he was doing, asked advertisers to provide him personally with one course for testing. Lev Durov then noted: from the beginning of use, he became less tired.
A little later, the head of the laboratory of the Institute of the Human Brain, Yuri Kropotov, clarified: the brain cannot be influenced by additives. Even if during the intake of the drug the impression of the activation of the work of the brain is created, then immediately after the end of the intake of the supplement, it disappears.
Commercial breaks appeared on Russian television in the 1990s. In those days, commercials were shot by the most real masters of Soviet cinema, and both famous actors and graduates of theatrical universities were filmed in them. Who were the actors who played the roles of Lenya Golubkov and his wife, the sausage seller in the Beeline ad or Alexander Suvorov in the Imperial Bank video? What was the fate of those who starred in commercials in the 1990s?
