Pairing a hot celebrity with an established or rising product can be risky business. Get it wrong, and it's usually the company that takes a beating, not the star. Those few lucky breaks where everything hits as it should are the minority. Ads that leave generations singing a catchy jingle, or throwing out a one-liner over the water-cooler the next morning. They have "stick."

We've assembled some of our favourite and not-so-favourite celebrity-driven car ads for your perusal. Some are great, others not so much. Most are just plain vanilla.
