Without further ado, here are the top 5 credit card ads featuring celebrities OF ALL TIME! 5. Pierce Brosnan- VISA Not only does this commercial feature a dapper Pierce Brosnan in his James Bond days, but also a surprise appearance by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks before she made it big.

4. Ellen Degeneres- American Express Rarely are commercials charming and hilarious at the same time, but Ellen Degeneres makes it look easy in this awesome ad.

3. Conan O'Brien- American Express In this ad, Conan looks hilariously out of place as he browses around India for the perfect silk curtains. Thank the credit gods this guy is back on TV!
