Zach Braff Discovers His Face Is Now Being Used To Cure Erectile Dysfunction
Zach Braff won the hearts of minds of millions the world over with his portrayal of the whiney, sometimes dastardly but ultimately relatable JD aka Doctor John Dorian in Scrubs, which graced our screens for more or less the whole of the first decade of the 21st century.
So it's no surprise that his extremely lovable face, with its symmetrical features, nice hair, teeth and lips should be the adorned on products here there and everywhere.
From lip balms to face creams to hair waxes which are sturdy yet still give you that just-out-of bed look you've been craving, Braff's face has done it all.
On that note, he sported that look as a doctor for a decade and no one really seemed to mind. I'd be quite worried if my doctor turned up looking like he'd been on it for three days, but oh those lovely eyes.
Anyway, sadly for Zach, his face is now being used not to promote balms or creams or other such items. Instead, the actor finds himself the face of erectile dysfunction, a job that Pele has been doing without stiff competition for a number of years.
In Pele's case, however, the former Brazil and Santos star was totally up for it (giggidy) when it came to putting his face and name to penis problems, namely because he was rewarded with large wads of cash.
Braff, however, has found himself the victim of face theft. His image was discovered sitting next to Cyrillic text on a poster for 'medical equipment', which turned out to be male performance enhancement pills, and not performance as in football or chess. They mean sexy time.
The actor is no stranger to having his face stolen, taking to Twitter (and taking it well) after discovering that his face was being used to sell everything from houses to computer repair services.

The revelation (which Braff took well tbf) led to a slew of other examples from around the world on social media, suggesting that copyright is not really taken very seriously in certain places.

Perhaps the best example of someone having their likeness appropriated and misused was John Terry, who found himself the face of a brand of cigarettes in India back in 2012.
Now there's a man who could sell penis-related products.
