James Franco Can't Pronounce Gucci!

James Franco Can't Pronounce Gucci!

James Franco has been the spokesperson for Gucci for the past year but the Ivy League-educated actor can’t even pronounce the luxury brand correctly!

Check out the the 31-year-old actor’s Gucci commercial outtakes below. With degrees from UCLA, Columbia University and NYU, you’d think he’d be able to pronounce Gucci!

FYI: James starts to shoot his scenes for the ABC soap General Hospital later this week in L.A.

    Agree with Fresh. Give me my time back! That better have been staged and intentional, otherwise Gucci should drop him and he should go get a job worthy of his education and stay away from stage, film and voiceover! Poor producer!

    Does Just Jared actually believe these are outtakes? Come on! It was obviously done for fun. James Franco may be beautiful, but he can’t be THAT dumb.

    Can he………………………????

  • helen w.

    I cannot BELIEVE there were people who thought this was for real. come ooon!

  • Cheiftan

    he is sooooo sexy!!!!

  • celia

    It’s obviously not real! He did it on purpose. People weren’t supposed to think it was real…that’s why it’s on Funny or Die. I just hope I don’t see that commercial…I will laugh my butt off.

  • michele

    cute. but you wouldn’t believe how many people REALLY CAN’T pronounce that sound…especially down south…NO ONE pronounces my last name properly. they never get the “ch” sound and always pronounce it with a “s” sound like “lucy” or they pronounce it “lucky” or “looky.” so annoying.

  • http://itcelebrity.blogspot.com itcelebrity

    pretty funny until about 3:25…

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    i didnt think it was that funny
    it’s 2 long, it was funny at 1st but they just extended the joke 2 much
    it got boring by the end of the video

  • cassie

    gash it’s funny!

  • http://whitetidelinedesigns.com Whitetidelinedesigns.com

    That so many folks thought this was real or possibly real just bespeaks one thing – the guy can’t do comedy. Needs to go back to acting school to understand the balance of comedy. It is an art and this guy does not have it, at least not a comedic sense or timing. Most don’t.
