Where else do you get to see movie clips of illustrious American celebrities in ads for household products they wouldn't be caught doing in the United States? Japander.com, of course. The front page of the website reads

Pander:n., & v.t. 1. go-between in clandestine amours, procurer; one who ministers to evil designs. 2 v.i. minister (to base passions or evil designs, or person having these)

Japander:n.,& v.t. 1. a western star who uses his or her fame to make large sums of money in a short time by advertising products in Japan that they would probably never use. ~er (see synecure, prostitute) 2. to make an ass of oneself in Japanese media.

The clips are all crazy weird from Arnold Schwarznegger pimping energy drinks and cup o' noodles to Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas  & Kevin Costner as Subaru pitchmen. I probably spent 30 minutes marvelling at the ads on the site, I definitely never thought I'd ever see Harrison Ford doing beer commercials. Definitely entertaining stuff.
