Celebs in Asia

Funny fact. Most Hollywood celebrities sell-out to advertise for random Korean and Japanese brands, and they even sign contracts that prevent their release in the Western world. It's a well-known fact, it's just weird to see Hollywood celebrities advertise for local brands I'd never heard of before. For example, Gwyneth Paltrow is the face of a random Korean clothing brand, even appearing in commercials and saying oddly translated English lines. The main guy from Prison Break is all over the place for a cheap coffee mix, belting out love tunes on a piano. I can't think of any more right now, but it's an easy way to make a lot of money for them.

Reminds me of Joey from Friends, when he told the group he was in a Japanese commercial for men lipstick. Haha.
