A complete list of the 42 pages of branded content in the December 2009 issue of GQ

Are they ads? Are they articles? Are they just filler in between photos of Leighton Meester? I don't know. But there sure are a lot of pages of branded content in GQ these days:

Pg. 39 - The Gentlemen's Fund, Adrian Grenier and Nautica talk about conservation and a charity named Oceana.

Pg. 73 - The Gentlemen's Fund, Ashton Kutcher and HP talk about education and Unicef.

Pgs. 81-84 - Grey Goose offers a guide to the best holiday vodka drinks.
