Michael Cera's experience with Tim Hortons wasn't exactly an endorsement, he wasn't even paid! In fact, his appearance on a Tim Hortons commercial came before he even got his big break. It was his first acting gig ever. Of course soon after that though he landed his role on I Was a Sixth Grade Alien, that sent him on the path he's on now.

Jason Priestley

Jason Priestley's work with Tim Hortons was actually a complete surprise to him. Back in 2013, Priestley worked on How I Met Your Mother as himself and joked about creating a special donut called "The Priestley." Basically the creation involved stuffing a strawberry-vanilla doughnut with a Tim Hortons Timbit. In honour of his appearance on the show, Tim Hortons created an exact replica of what was described on the show, and Priestley let them know that it was "the proudest day of my [his] life."

Unlike some of your other favourite actors, Cera got his big break at a young age. By his first year of high school, he was already missing classes to head to Los Angeles for filming, and by his second year of high school, he left the classroom behind entirely and decided to complete his diploma through correspondence instead.

Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes is the most recent celeb to work with the coffee chain and it may be the biggest celeb campaign they've ever done. Tim Hortons created the Shawn Mendes hometown hero campaign in honor of his first sold-out stadium tour in Toronto. He filmed a commercial with Tim Hortons and even got his picture on their coffee cups. There were also limited edition Shawn Mendes reusable coffee mugs available for purchase!

DEADMAU5

DEADMAU5 actually requested to somehow work with Tim Hortons when he tweeted them asking for a custom DEADMAU5 Doughnut. The head of social at Tim Hortons saw the tweet and knew it would be great for advertisement. A few hours later they tweeted DEADMAU5 back with a photo of Timbits assembled in the shape of his iconic costume.

Tristan Thompson

If you're a fan of Tristan Thompson, you have to remember the time he brought the NBA championship trophy to a Tim Hortons in his hometown of Brampton. Tristan Thompson is also an official Tim Hortons celebrity endorser. He's so Canadian he even bragged to his coach about eating 12 Timbits in one day.

Starbucks, McDonald's and the Coca-Cola Company rounded out the top five of the environmental advocacy group's list of plastic polluters."Year to year the general order can shift a bit, but overall it's those top usual suspects that we will keep seeing pop up," said Sarah King, head of Greenpeace Canada's oceans and plastics campaign.
