The Internet is undeniably making the world smaller.
And while this is a great thing for friends trying to stay in touch years after moving away from each other, there’s a certain sect of people who must suffer while the rest of us thrive.
I’m talking, of course, about American celebrities who years ago starred in bizarre, unintentionally hilarious commercials in Japan (why Japan is the main purveyor of this advertising insanity, I have no idea), only to have the Internet unearth them for the whole planet to see.

Back in October, Marquee reported that a "Zoolander" sequel was in the works in which Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) would find themselves coping with life as aging supermodels. So when can we expect to see the Blue Steel back on screen?
"They're really trying to make it happen and get everybody on board for it," Stiller's wife, actress Christine Taylor tells Vulture. "I feel like nobody wants to make it more than Ben, so he's driven. I hope it happens."
Taylor, who played Zoolander's love interest, journalist Matilda Jeffries, also hints that she may return for a second round.

The Motion Picture Academy is confirming Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out as an Oscar presenter.
He was supposed to take part in an "Avatar" sketch with Ben Stiller, playing a female Na'vi. Stiller reportedly was going to "translate" what Cohen was saying in Na'vi. The Cohen avatar reportedly would then reveal she was pregnant with director James Cameron's love child.
Sounds pretty funny to me, but the Academy says the bit "did not come to fruition" (maybe "gestation" would have been a better word).
