Why is it that most voice-over announcers for beauty product (e.g. make-up, shampoo, moisturizer, etc.) commercials are British women (or at least women speaking with a British accent)? It seems fairly prevalent, but I don't see a reason for it. British women aren't necessarily more beautiful than other women, are they? Maybe Americans feel that British women really know their beauty products.
On an unrelated, but still British note, I think there should be a show where Simon Cowell and Gordon Ramsey deride each other and generally act smarmy for a half hour. I'd like that.
