You mean like a recent movie where they are in Times Square and a big billboard is promoting "Game of Shaodws?" {nm}

Product placement: Does it irritate you?   HarryWarden on Dec 31, 08:30

I'm fortunately neutral about PP. Rarely notice it. I do leave the cinema with a strange desire for Coca Cola and iPhones though... {nm}   numbersix_99 on Dec 31, 08:36

Honestly, it's something we see every day at this point. Not sure why it should seem odd in movies.   TheWeekendWarrior on Dec 31, 08:42

i agree with you, or they'd cover up/alter part of the actual name leaving actors to drink "epsi" or to wash their clothes with "fide" (nm)   Beer Wench on Dec 31, 09:15

Speaking of generic brand stuff, why the fake phone numbers that start with 555? I want to call the Gohostbusters, dammit.   stevie1der328 on Dec 31, 09:19

OK,,,for a good time call Jenny at 867-5309 forgot the area code {nm}   mrbinns on Dec 31, 10:25

Some interesting uses of that number...where one might least expect it... (source wikipedia, not peer reviewed)   PVL Admin on Dec 31, 13:47

Ugh, that was wretched. I remember Sbarro, Toshiba, and Nokia being in there too, among others.   Jelly on Dec 31, 11:19

Wonder whether they'll alter that billboard for the video release to promote Game of Shadows on Blu-Ray. {nm}   TFeeney on Dec 31, 13:36

I agree. Worst product placement I have ever seen though was the TV show Eureka. They did a one hour long car commercial for an episode. {nm}   mrbeankc on Dec 31, 12:22

Showing a product is one thing, talking about it is another   Zaba on Dec 31, 12:42

Actually, it bugs me more when they have labels turned *just* away from the camera.   tawdryhepburn on Dec 31, 12:07

How about when the semi nude Victoria Secret models are plastered all over bus shelters while a driving scene is ongoing? Simply shameless.   PVL Admin on Dec 31, 13:53
