However, Trump wanted a $250,000 payment instead of the agreed-upon $10,000 appearance fee. After the band refused to pay for his appearance, Trump was replaced in the final version of the music video.[23][24]


Trump has also appeared in a number of television commercials for Pizza Hut. The first of these commercials aired in the U.S. in 1995, and featured his ex-wife Ivana promoting Stuffed Crust pizzas.[25] The second of these commercials aired in the Australian market in 2000, and was for large 'New Yorker' pizzas the chain was promoting at the time.[26] In 2002, Trump appeared in three McDonald's commercials featuring the Grimace.[2]

Trump leans over the edge of the tower to watch his card plummet to earth and lets out a funny "uh-oh." As a voiceover explains that Visa check-card holders aren't responsible for unauthorized purchases -- a fact we're supposed to believe Trump has no knowledge of -- the television star and real estate mogul makes his way to the street, where we next see him bent over the bin frantically searching for the card -- an amusing image indeed, given the Trump persona we now know so well.
