Although he’s making headlines for infidelity with wife Demi Moore, reports are swirling around another story based on Ashton Kutcher’s new gig on Two and a Half Men. During the second episode of this season, Ashton’s billionaire web entrepreneur character lounges on the couch with his laptop only to reveal stickers for websites like Foursquare and GroupMe which also happen to be the same companies he invested in real life!
As reported by E! News, Ashton is an investor in those companies and in particular FourSquare was indicated by a disclaimer in the show’s credits to adhere to FCC regulations.
In fact, Dennis Crowley, the CEO of Foursquare tweeted, “Very cool - @aplusk shows off @thehipmunk @chegg @foursquare @groupme stickers on Two and a Half Men PIC from @dens.”
Keep in mind CBS didn’t receive a dime for the apparent advertising gimmick. A representative told E!, “Our policy is to disclose such financial interests in a credit at the end of the broadcast.” Although there weren’t any additional comments, CBS is apparently going to blur out the stickers wen the episode airs reruns.
