Rather than having your product endorsed by a related celebrity, in the manner of consumer headphone companies, sports brands and perfume companies, have a celebrity who is either non-related or famous for completely opposite reasons.

examples might be: Richard Dawkins endorsed bibles, Yo-Yo Ma endorsed synthesizers (conversely, Daft Punk endorsed cellos), and Lance Armstrong endorsed wine glasses.

       Didn't Gilbert Gottfried do the voiceover for a silly infomercial once? (Or was that actually a joke?)

       //I'm available - am a complete nobody.//   

       Exactly- imagine the confusion if chanel brought out a line of fragrances named "perfumes by po".

       It will help create more people famous for being famous.   

       "Hawking?" "He's that NASCAR flack." "Right"

       How? Why?

       //You mentioned Richard Dawkins endorsing the Bible. How do you suppose you'd get him to do that?//   

       People will do a lot of things with a large enough incentive. Not saying that Dawkins would abandon his principles for money, but maybe if you let him write the foreword... Or edit some bits...   

       //Why?//   

       Publicity.
