Weird Al once turned down $5 million in the late 80s, to endorse a beer company. He told Mojo Magazine that he was offered five million dollars to become the spokesman for a beer brand.
Weird Al said, “I don’t have a whole lot of regrets. A number of years ago a beer company offered me five million dollars, back when that was a lot of money, to be their commercial spokesperson.”
He said he turned it down because, “a lot of my fans were young and impressionable, so ethically I believe I did the right thing, but not a day goes by when I don’t think, ‘Hmm, an extra five million dollars would really come in handy’.”
