2. Chalres Barkley & The Five-Buck Box, Taco Bell
Taco Bell went to the limit and decided to sign one of the most entertaining men in sports in Charles Barkley.

Barkley has one of the sickest rhymes in the rap industry and a nobody by the name of Jay-Z or Eminem should be taking notes.
Charles Barkley is fun that all families can enjoy.
Throw in Lamar Odom, a long-time Laker and husband to the unknown Kardashian, and you have one of the best rap duos since Notorious BIG and Tupac were in the business.
1. David Wright and The Situation, Vitamin Water
David Wright is looking like a changed man in 2010. He's more mature than ever and is sporting a beard. What could have caused a change like this?
Maybe a rigorous off-season training session with a body-builder helped?
Vitamin Water launched an ad featuring Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and the Mets third-baseman working out in the season.
If all Major League baseball players worked out like this in the offseason it would be quite an interesting game.
