Pierce Brosnan Keeps It Classy in Indian Ad Campaign, Internet Laughs Anyway

Is “the poor man aware what’s he promoting?” one Twitter user asks

Pierce Brosnan gave the people of India quite a surprise on Friday morning when he appeared in a full-page ad for the pan masala brand Pan Bahar.

The actor, best known for playing super-suave secret agent James Bond in four films, is not the first celebrity to appear in a foreign advertisement. If you don’t believe that, just watch this Nicolas Cage commercial from Japan.

But people online are definitely having fun at Brosnan’s expense, with plenty of “shaken, not stirred” jokes to go around.

Read some of the reactions below.
