Back in November, various media outlets reported Julia Roberts made $1.5 million to appear in Lavazza ad. She did not have to speak. She only had to smile and wink. You know there is good money to be made if even Saint Brangelina is not immune (Angelina shilled for Shiseido in Japan and Brad's efforts can be seen below). More often than not celebrities will shill abroad. And while it can be argued whether or not it makes financial sense for the advertisers to hand over so much cash for celebrities, they are still willing to fork it over (not sans insurance natch, you never know when you have next Tiger Woods or Wayne Rooney on your hands). Meanwhile we can get a few giggles out of latest celebrity endorsements.

Laughter is the best medicine. And nobody does humor better than the Brits. It's the nation that has given us Monty Python, Blackadder and Little Britain. So here at COED we have decided to come up with a tentative list of 8 British shows that should be americanized. Tentative list since translating British shows for American screens wasn't always successful. See what we mean? But we love British shows. And when there is will, there is a way, right?
Geeks have come a long way since the days of Revenge of the Nerds. Once Vogue declares that "geek is chic" you know you've gone mainstream. Since television executives are a bit slower on the uptake, it's taken them a while to catch on. These ladies are hot, the kind of hot that'll make your glasses steam up: brainy, geeky and ridin' nerdy.
