Long before 1988’s Dirty Dancing, Patrick Swayze proved he had all the moves in a 1979 TV commercial for Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. The 27-year-old’s dance performance almost puts Johnny Castle to shame.
Four years before Channing Tatum landed his iconic role as Tyler Gage in the OG Step Up, he starred in a 2002 Pepsi commercial as a DJ. Not long after, he also landed a Mountain Dew ad, where he gave off major Fast and the Furious vibes with his driving skills.
