Celebrities are, a lot of the time, a prime target for abuse. It's like shooting fish in a barrel. You can say things like, ‘Hey, Kanye, stop talking so much bollocks all the time,' or y'know, ‘Hey, Bieber, stop putting photos of your bare ass on a boat on social media. Enough already.'

Then we get into the whole shady area of why exactly the Kardashians are famous. Talentless billionaire ballaches-amundo. But there's one thing you can't fault any of these guys on: their ability to hawk whatever product comes their way.

They'll do anything in the name of cashtacular. We've seen Mr. T firing Snickers bars out of a tank, demanding that we GET SOME NUTS. We've seen Ozzy Osborne advertising I can't Believe It's Not Butter. Then there's my personal favorite, Hulk Hogan chewing on Honey Nut Cheerios and telling us they're better than a body slam.

With the advent of this spangly new ‘Internet' thing, it's easier than ever for these guys to sell us products. Reaching out to their millions of followers/fans/like-ers with a quick social media post is the way to go. Hence these totally-not-solicited-by-Activision Instagram plugs for Call of Duty DLC.

Black Ops 3's Awakening expansion hit PS4 last week, with dates for the PC and Xbox One arrival yet to be announced. If you're not freaking excited yet, let the NBA's Kyrie Irving and Coco hype you up the right way:

And you haven't even seen the Replacer pretending to be pregnant as he stands in for Chrissy Teigen yet. More of this at GameSpot.
