They call this: Movie Product Placements. Manufacturers try to get their product into the movie and hope to make their brand more known and of course also to sell more. In the movie E.T., the poor “thing” was attracted by some sweet stuff. If you look at it you think E.T. fingers picking up M&M’s, but it wasn’t. Mars was afraid that due to the beauty of E.T. nobody would eat M&M’s anymore. Another company, offering the same kind of things, didn’t mind and took the risk and suddenly sold about 65% more!
The guy below is obviously very busy with his shoes and everybody, for sure the kids saving for it, will notice these are not Jan Jansen Shoes. I can only hope this actor wears Jan Jansen Shoes after the recording is finished 🙂
I have no idea what Popeye’s Chicken food is, but if you don’t know and you did not fall asleep during the movie, I am sure you will Google later on to find out.
What I really hate is that good, old fashioned, fresh water. For sure if I have to drink it out of a no-brand bottle. Instead I die for a Pepsi!
And now Ladies and Gentlemen, I ask your attention for the shame of the movie industry: the appearance of our Mystère ia11 Integrated Tube Amplifier for which we paid zero, nothing, nada! Isn’t this funny? Kerry Jackson, working for Upscale Audio, was looking TV in the evening and saw this add passing by and noticed our amp standing in a shelf. Have a sharp look at 00:19 and pause the movie to look at it frame by frame :-). Thanks guys. It was free and gave me also a subject to blog on 🙂
