Translation: don't use inhuman Martians to shill your products...

The best con of all is that the following have managed to persuade ad executives, and corporate sponsors, that being associated with them actually helps sell products:

Sexpot Anna Nicole Smith, hotel heiress Paris Hilton, pop tart Britney Spears, supermodel Kate Moss and real estate mogul Donald Trump were all examples of celebs whose association made it less likely a person would buy a product, the study said.
Wrong! The fact that too many Americans will watch the above-cited Martians, with sick fascination like a bloody car wreck, does not translate to persuading them to open their wallets.

In a more just world, every single one of the above assholes would (a) have to endure anonymity, and (b) get a Real Job. But that ain't how it works in America, folks.

Instead of jobs, such jackasses get reality TV shows.
