There's no shame in Cristiano Ronaldo's tech-shill game

Cristiano Ronaldo is more than a massive football star. He's also a model, a philanthropist and (because why not?) an entrepreneur. Ronaldo, who plays club soccer in Spain and for the Portugal national team, recently showed up in Japan to promote the SIXPAD, a muscle-stimulation device that promises to make your abs look like those on his body.

While much was made of the weirdness of SIXPAD's promotional video, it's far from the first time Ronaldo's been the face behind a peculiar product. In fact, people in Japan love him for it, so much so that he now has his own 3D-printed, life-size figure, which was created to show off the SIXPAD and, as a bonus, a pair of boxer briefs from his CR7 underwear line.

So how do we honor the Ronaldo tech-shilling madness with all that it entails? With a collection of some of his best and most bizarre tech moments, of course. De nada.
