So two or three years ago Charles Barkley was the spokesmen for the Taco Bell 5 buck box. The commercial was actually pretty well done and quotable, but Chuck is a big man, so a fast food spot doesn’t really do too much for him. So now he is dressed in drag to promote Weight Watchers. When I first saw this commercial come up I was terrified, mainly because Barkley looks damn good in a dress. Gotta give him credit though, he did look slimmer and he claimed to have lost about 40 pounds. So hey, if Chuck can make it work then so can you…..as long as you ditch the Taco Bell.

Even with that, there is still one thing up for debate. Chuck looks classy in both commercials. But the Taco Bell one has him reciting poetry. Somehow Taco Bell gets the nod of the classier commercial, an award I doubt they will ever receive again.
