Why don’t you take a look at this bizarro vitamin commercial and decide for yourself?
I have a lot more questions, folks. But I’ll spare you for now. Hiddleston uploaded this ad for Centrum vitamins to the Chinese social media app Weibo, and the subtitles make it obvious this is a Chinese commercial. The cultural barrier could have something to do with why this seems so strange. And we can’t exactly blame Tom for scooping this up, since foreign endorsement ads are known to bring the big bucks. (Just ask Leonardo DiCaprio or Nicolas Cage.)
Of course, that isn’t stopping the memes, like this brilliant parody from comedian Phil Wang that shows just how ridiculous the whole concept for this commercial is.

Keep on doing you, Tom Hiddleston. Make that vitamin money. But next time, give a little warning before you show up in my kitchen.
