Megan Fox and Mike Tyson Did a Commercial Together and Yes, It’s as Awkward as You Probably Thought

No, it’s actually kind of cute, really, if you can get past the fact that Megan doesn’t want anything to do with non-English-speaking men.

The commercial is for CCAA, which is a Brazilian-based language school that is trying to implement a country-wide campaign to push for a universal education of the English language. In short, two young men are shipwrecked (plane-wrecked?) on “Megan Fox Island,” and upon finding out that the men aren’t bilingual, Megan captures them in a net and ships them off to – you guessed it – “Mike Tyson Island.”

I’ll admit, the island names aren’t really all that creative, and the idea of being turned off because someone speaks a different language is kind of questionable, but you can’t deny that Megan Fox is still so, so hot, and Mike Tyson, though he only speaks five words, can deliver his lines and be funny at the same time.

What else has Megan Fox been up to, though, you ask? Well … this commercial here, this is pretty much it. And the only thing she’s really got on the horizon is that possibility of yanking Lindsay Lohan‘s Liz Taylor role in that Lifetime movie that’s supposed to be made.

Megan also recently visited Turkey to film a Doritos commercial (!), and did a few amusing interviews, one of which where she admitted to not knowing that Istanbul is not some small town in Turkey. Mind the translation, as the interview excerpt came from a Turkish newspaper:

SABA TÜMER: Hi Megan, how are you? It’s your first time in Turkey, you just arrived yesterday? What did you know about Turkey prior to your visit? What did you expected and what have you seen so far here?

MEGAN FOX: I knew a few things about Turkey. Like you have the most ancient temple on earth … and it is not far from where we are right now.

SABA TÜMER: And you made this research before or after the offer for the [Doritos] ad was made?

MEGAN FOX: I knew this already, because I’ve watched a show called ”Ancient Aliens”. It sounds silly, but it is about ancient temples and pyramids. I watched the special episode about this temple. I can’t pronounce it correctly right now, but it is a ‘Göbekli Tepe’.

SABA TÜMER: So you are interested in archaeology and history? Do you read a lot ?

MEGAN FOX: No, I really don’t take a book and read. I read from my iPad.

SABA: How did you find Istanbul? Did you go shopping? Have you tried traditional Turkish cuisine yet?

MEGAN FOX: No, not yet. Haven’t found the chance yet. But I will do it today. I want to visit The Grand Bazaar and the Mosques. I want to eat Turkish food as soon as possible. This is not like what I did expect here. I thought Istanbul was a town. But it is a metropolis, with big urbanization and industry. So many buildings everywhere; I didn’t expect this.

SABA: Everyone can be actor, but not everyone can be star. Why do you think you became a star?

MEGAN FOX: I think that God is relevant. It is faith completely.

SABA: Would you like to be an actress again in a second life?

MEGAN FOX: No, I would not be.

SABA: Why?

MEGAN FOX: I’d go back to school I’d be an archaeologist.

SABA: Celebrities like doing tattoos as much as you do. How many tattoos you got?

MEGAN FOX: I have 8 …

SABA: Just see one now …

MEGAN FOX: Yes, but I will have it removed.

SABA: Why?

MEGAN FOX: It is a Marilyn Monroe tatoo. I’ve done it at 18, I do not want it anymore.

SABA: I guess you do not want it because she had a bad life?

MEGAN: Most def.

So, we gather that Megan Fox likes aliens, archaeology, regrettable decisions, and tattoos. But probably not Doritos. No, this girl doesn’t look like she’s been eating any Doritos at all. Fascinating interview, right?
