He's in almost every commercial from Papa Johns Pizza, General Car Insurance, and a shit ton of things. Is he really that desperate for money? He's surely made a lot off of his career and merchandise so it doesn't really make sense that he needs to do commercials.
Most Helpful Opinions
Shaq is known as being very generous and gives away money constantly to those in need. He has various interests and has a celebrity value so he can market his brand to advertise. Many other celebrities have done the same.
Also marketing tends to be more targeted these days so if you are seeing lots of Shaq that may speak to the entertainment you are choosing to watch. Are you watching lots of sports and content related?2
Yeah he doesn't need to be on TNT's inside the NBA either. First off there's no such thing as too much money. Secondly I'm sure Shaq doesn't do anything he truly doesn't want to do. But Shaq is a brand. I'm sure to some degree Shaq likes remaining a bit in the limelight since he can't do it on the court anymore.0
It depends on your viewing interest. I like to watch girl flicks and I never see him in a single ad.2
What Girls & Guys Said
He owns/is part owner of a lot of companies/businesses and he's never really taken himself too seriously, so commercials are probably just another fun thing for him to do.20
Because he’s invested in all of those companies, he’s even said it publicly0
He either wants or needs the money.
Because money. They go to shaq, ask him if he wanna make some money, he's likely going to say yes. Even in a terrible movie he acted in back in the day, he said he did it for money. Sooo money.
The more money, the more awareness for commercials.
