Back before Bryan Cranston was winning Emmys and making out with Julia Louis Dreyfus, he was hawking hemorrhoid cream. Brad Pitt once tried his hardest to make eating Pringles look like a sexy, fun thing to do. Now you can watch those auspicious debuts and more in this "Before They Were Famous" supercut.

Other notable performances include a very young, very excited-about-broccoli Elijah Wood, the dulcet tones of Morgan Freeman advising viewers to "Stay black, stay strong," and smoke Black & Longs, and Paul Rudd in a Nintendo commercial that plausibly could have been shot last week, because that man just does not age.

Because we all have to start somewhere, and the internet never forgets.
