Many actors loan out their famous faces to make some extra coin in foreign markets without over saturating their image here in the States. Big screen tough guy Sylvester Stallone is no different, and since he hasn't had a good financially successful picture since Demolition Man, he was probably pretty excited when Volkswagen of Brazil came calling. Following the jump are two VW commercials for the VW Gol hatchback. The first one is a minute and a half long, and features a Rambo-style helicopter vs. sub-Polo Gol battle royale. And the second one involves a group of curious onlookers honing in on the Gol as it sits parked on the side of the road. Both ads feature a rough-looking Stallone showing up at the end, and even though he only utters a few words, a Portuguese-speaking dub is needed. Hillarious, and kind of sad at the same time. Thanks for the tip, Carlos!

      Wow, this article is a joke. I watched Rambo last night on Pay per view and it completely kicks @$$! The last Rocky movie also got great reviews and was a box office success. The second I read that one sentence about Stallone the author lost all credibility.

      Rocky Balboa has taken in over $70mil, and Rambo over $110mil, so I fail to see how you can say he hasn't made any financially successful films.

        Actually, Rocky Balboa has taken in over 155 million as of today (cost only $24 million to make), and Rambo has taken in over 113 million as of today (cost only $50 million to make). This doesn't account for DVD sales and rentals, either. Go to www.boxofficemojo.com for more info.

      Is there something wrong with making money in a commercial now? Brad pitt has made a fortune shilling for Japanese beer, I didn't hear anyone say anything about that and obviously he is famous enough to be asked, thats a good thing. I saw his last rtambo flick, it was fun and typical and it seemed to make money so whats the big deal, he isn't on the street begging is he? Lots of stars less famous the Stalone sell for other countries, they pay really big money for them to do it and most accept, I don't blame them. I hope you didn't pay carlos for that worthless tip. LOL.

      Poor Sly he's aged badly .All the cosmetic surgery he's had done makes him look desperate. He looks like a prune that's been baked in the Mojave desert.

      Stallone makes plenty of money whether or not his movies do well.... and the last 2 did plenty well.
      The slur that Sly has is from when he was born. Back in those days, the doctors used forceps around the baby's head to help pull it out. It damaged a nerve is his face resulting in the slur and droop to his mouth. Milo Ventimiglia has the same problem with his mouth, hence why Sly chose him to play his son in "Rocky Balboa". And he is far from ignorant. He is actually quite intelligent. As a matter of fact, one of the next movies he wants to do is a biopic about Edgar Allan Poe.

      How can you mention these commercials without mentioning the star of both of them is Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, one of the famous Victoria Secret models, and one of the highest paid models in the world?

      Sylvester's got nothing on her!

      He might have had a stroke that caused him to talk with a slur. I heard he was very smart.

      You should highlight the fact the Gisele Bundchen is in the ad, probably the world's highest paid supermodel right now.
