mental_floss on CNN
The fine folks at CNN had me back yesterday. Here's the segment, and here are the stories I referenced:
"¢ The Stories Behind 10 Famous Product Placements, by Stacy Conradt
"¢ The Strange Early Jobs of 23 Famous People, by Ethan Trex
And if you'd like to watch a young Brad Pitt playing Ben Seaver's idol on Growing Pains, that episode is available in full on Joost.
