CronoDyne: Many of these aren't "product placement." They're actual commercials
featuring cameos from popular characters of the time. The Filinstones clip,
for instance, is an actual cigarrette ad.
Fresh Phily: Ahhh get our of my head!!!
manuel campos: 2:38 please!.. what's the name of the song??!!.... anyone?
Matrixian21: What's the song at 4:40?
Don Krypton: Wayne's world and product placement? Come on - that was just Wayne's real
endlessgametomake: Yes,welcome to the world of"product placement,"or as it is known to more
cynical commentators,"stealth advertising,"a business said to be growing by
50% a year in the United States.To the casual observer,the use of popular
brand-name products in TV dramas may look like simple realism.In
actuality,none of the products is there by chance.Every one has been
included because its manufacturer has paid a hefty fee.That does seem
99Lezard99: oh yeah... cast away is the best fed ex commercial ever... its a good
movie. but you missed hitman the movie. the biggest audi commercial.
ihate1988: What's the song that starts playing at 1:46?
Lilasko: I actually never realize when it's product placement in a show. No matter
how obvious it is.
michaelsharples: 3:33 is from Cast Away and FedEx Paid nothing for it (i think on the
director commentary Robert Zemeckis said he didnt want money as that would
be shamelessly selling out and compromise the integrity of the film
Francis J.: Celebrities or figures used in advertisements, and sponsorships are not
"product placement"... just saying.
Michael Prince: I don't think its meant to be obvious, but it triggers your mind and sneaks
in the back door of your conscious so when you go the the shops and you see
the product, you're familiar with it and people love familiarity. Great vid!
XeutonMojukai: @dtvfan15 Because the BBC has class.
SpikeD1: Some of these are actual commercials I believe. But that aside, nice
montage. I like how the tongue in cheek ones were accompanied with no
music. And whats the deal with the Rice Krispies one? Was that tongue in
cheek as well?
benjamintaher: somebody got an assignment about product placement?
earthcomedy: nice compilation....Bewitched of old has sponsorship / product placement
for Quaker Oats, Chevy, Aunt Jemima...was a combination of sponsorship /
product placement....more on the sponsorship...but it was integrated
tightly in the opening credits...
jmays950: Workaholics has also pretty obvious product placement
twatfaceno1: "With enough Rice Krispies will he ever be able to play the bass AGAIN?"
"Well yes" "That's weird, he never could before." What?
BaubleRob: Bugs, you prick!
scm8487: The American Idol ad was hilarious. Red coke cups, lol!
