Entourage‘s second season has featured several celebrity guest stars (Bob Saget, Amanda Peet), but the most distracting cameos have been made by brand names like Apple, Barneys, and Van Cleef & Arpels. Turtle returns Vince’s Macintosh computer in order to finance expensive pajamas at Barneys; E buys Van Cleef jewels to compensate for cheating on his girl. What gives? ”Honestly, [the brands are] all my favorites,” says the show’s creator Doug Ellin, who adds that Entourage receives no money for the placements. ”I pick stuff that I use or people in the world use. We try to make it realistic.” Fair enough, but we’ll really get suspicious if Vince starts doing iPod commercials.
