So that's what Megan Fox gets up to in her spare time.

Remember Acer's crazy Jack-Bauer-Makes-Cupcakes commercial? Well, if you thought it couldn't get any stranger than that, you were definitely wrong (it's okay, we were wrong, too). It seems Acer is looking to make that ad into a series, as the company has just released a second commercial featuring a well-known celebrity doing something that might be seen as totally out of character.

This one stars Transformers actress Megan Fox as a dolphin expert, working tirelessly to communicate with dolphins. Seriously. What does this have to do with Acer computers? We're not really sure. Perhaps we'll figure it out the second time around...

Check it out for yourself down below. Let us know which you prefer, Megan and dolphins or Jack and cupcakes?

Since there are articles about the ads it seems they are successful.

Ya, hers was but I didn't see his. I was expecting him to shoot the woman in the grocery store in the knee caps. That would have been hilarious!

That's no excuse. The first thing you should've done is used the search feature, or at the least, read the news for the last week before posting... :p

At least she looks fine doing it. That's the main thing.

I admit, odd adds, but the Jack-Bauer-Makes-Cupcake is hilarious!!!! Thanks for the content, I would have never searched for these myself.

Second one is actually really good, one of the better ads I've seen this year. Megan Fox? A bit too weird.
