There are times when a commercial starring an athlete can be as visually engaging and well produced as a short film. There are other times when a commercial starring an athlete merely serves as pointed and unintentionally hilarious reminder that this person is not a trained actor.

Among the various species of athlete endorsements few produce cringeworthy content as frequently as car endorsements. Cars are the sixth most advertised product in America, and every now and then an athlete is asked to be the face of a dealership or even an entire brand. The results of this can be awkward, funny, or just downright strange. Right, Magic?

With this in mind, we compiled some of our favorite car commercials featuring athletes. We dare you to not laugh.
