Ashton Kutcher Edits Details, Tells Readers To Use His Stuff

Ashton Kutcher, the lucky guy who is replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and Half Men, has guest edited a special online version of Details. Inside the issue – which is focused on social media – readers can find photos that Kutcher had taken with his phone, advice for proper Twitter usage, and style tips. Yes, style tips from the man who once thought trucker hats were a good idea.

As if fashion suggestions from Kutcher weren’t bad enough, Gawker notes that in a section titled “Generation Next… a guide to the emerging tools transforming the way you live,” Kutcher recommends 12 products, eight of which Kutcher is invested in.

There is no disclosure of this in the issue. It’s just Kutcher telling Details’ readers “My stuff is the best bros, so you know, use it.”

A classy move by Kutcher and the editors at Details.
