It’s a big world with a whole lot more people than the American population alone. This is something that the managers and agents of America’s biggest celebrities know all too well. You can hear that phone call now. “Hey, Snoop Dogg. It’s me, your agent. There’s this German prepaid mobile company that needs you to pop out of a fridge singing in German.

Well, come to think of it, Joey’s comment was uttered in a pre-YouTube world. Luckily for us, we now get to see these 12 celebrities in their very odd overseas projects.
