Everyone that has some brain cells left would do commercials. Big money for not much work.
I think the catch is: nobody wants to be acting in a commercial as a character because no one knows who they are - which I've seen happen recently and felt kinda sorry for the actress.
That's the only exception that I can see that would make commercials "bad" but even in that case, apparently the commercial is good because at least they can get some kind of paying gig.
