      I'd argue certain product placement in James Bond sort of gets away with it. Bond driving an Aston Martin or wearing an Omega watch are associated with the character in a way that transcends the blatant product placement they are.

      Unless you're a total autist then you're not noticing 90% of product placement in any movie, making it subtle. There's thousands of movies where the character casually drinks some Pepsi and you think nothing of it(unless you're autistic), instead you only remember the Pepsi product placement in WWZ because of how unsubtle it is.

        if you don't notice or remember the product, what was the point of the ad?

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          You do remember the product, you just can't pinpoint where you've seen it. You keep seeing it in movies and shows and then when you see it in real life you get a moment of recognition and that makes it more likely that you'll buy it, because it's not a completely foreign object to you. Brands like Coca Cola and Pepsi especially work on that level, they're just trying to make sure that everyone all over the globe recognises their brand and won't forget it. Because then when faced with a quick beverage choice you'll be more likely to pick Coca Cola than Cuba Cola or Mountain Dew or whatever, since you've seen so many people drinking Coca Cola compared to everything else.

          The same shit works for everything down to carpets or couches. If you keep seeing certain designs in classy rich homes in movies you'll end up thinking the carpet looks classy and rich when you come across it in a store, having no idea that you've seen it in movies.

      this pack of marlboro cigarettes is visible for about 6 seconds, and nobody smokes in the scene
      it's also so small that it is not strictly legible

      I feel like this one's okay just because the whole moral of the movie is for Tom Hanks' character to learn not to be a corporate stooge obsessed with making the company he works for more efficient and instead live his own life. Sure you see lots of FedEx logos but they're not actually portrayed positively. They were even moronic enough to make a seafood buffet with crab legs for the guy who's been stuck on a deserted island for a decade, showing that they're shit at knowing what to give a person just as he was shit at it in the beginning of the movie, only thinking of the monetary worth and not the meaning.

    Consider yourselves lucky - television shows have it much, MUCH worse. You can b***h all you want about Will Smith showing off sneakers or Superman looking at a plate of pancakes, but you haven't seen anything as bad as characters in a television drama stopping for several minutes in the middle of an episode to talk about their favorite computer security software or ramble about their favorite brand food snacks.

    Bones was probably the worst culprit of this: There were literally dozens of episodes over the series where Bones and Booth would stop in the middle of a murder investigation to spend 4-5 minutes talking about the features of 'the all new 20__ Toyota® Prius™' or whatever, and once dedicated an entire 25 minute B-plot of an episode to the lab squints reacting to the trailer to Avatar and camping outside of the theater to watch the movie.

    I watched the first 45 minutes of Madam Web, just to see how bad it actually was. It's just a giant Pepsi commercial. Her and Uncle Ben are drinking Mountain Dew in the breakroom. One scene they were at a cookout and everyone's drinking beer, and she asks for a beer, and Uncle Ben says you should have this Pepsi. Then for literally the next ten minutes, across multiple scenes, she carries an unopened can of Pepsi around while talking with various characters and always showing the label of the can. I didn't see this part, but someone says they feature the Pepsico Plant. Also the bad guy apparently gets killed by the P in a giant Pepsi sign.

    This site counts everytime there's a product placement scene on a production, and apparently, the family plan, the mark wahlberg family comedy, is one of the worst most recent offenders, over 95 scenes.

      I bailed at season 2 but even then I remember they had ridiculous scenes where they were looking at a map and planning something, with the map on the hood of the car and the actors standing awkwardly on either side of the car and bending over it, because they couldn't cover up the front the car. It looked so fricking stupid.

    Apparently madame web is one big pepsi commercial. They have Uncle Ben as a paramedic advise someone to drink a Pepsi instead of a beer because it's healthier, and in the finale the villain is killed by a falling pepsi sign. Doesn't get much more blatant than that.

    To play Devil's advocate, no one in life uses no name products and if you saw a no name product in a film/show it wouldn't look right.

    • 4 weeks ago

      You're not playing a good devil's advocate, because usually when a product is shown the label is slightly askew, if not outright hidden. For example if a character opens the fridge you might see a bottle of French's mustard. Was the movie or episode sponsored by French's? Probably not, because it's just a bottle of mustard in someone's fridge. Now it would be totally different, and VERY blatant, if the character decided to pull the bottle of mustard from the fridge and use it or leave it on the counter for fifteen minutes with the label directly facing the camera in every shot.

    I'm curious. But do any of you people who notice product placements in movies, actually buy them because you saw them in a movie?

    Me? I don't even notice that crap at all. Don't even think about it to be honest.

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      If you listen to this anon

      You do remember the product, you just can't pinpoint where you've seen it. You keep seeing it in movies and shows and then when you see it in real life you get a moment of recognition and that makes it more likely that you'll buy it, because it's not a completely foreign object to you. Brands like Coca Cola and Pepsi especially work on that level, they're just trying to make sure that everyone all over the globe recognises their brand and won't forget it. Because then when faced with a quick beverage choice you'll be more likely to pick Coca Cola than Cuba Cola or Mountain Dew or whatever, since you've seen so many people drinking Coca Cola compared to everything else.

      The same shit works for everything down to carpets or couches. If you keep seeing certain designs in classy rich homes in movies you'll end up thinking the carpet looks classy and rich when you come across it in a store, having no idea that you've seen it in movies.

      , that's the whole point. You don't notice the product and then when it shows up in your life, it naturally has a an advantage over competing products because the ad made it seem familiar to you already.

      In my experience, this might be true for small purchases (food, clothing, gadgets etc) but familiarity can be outweighed by all the other factors that unconsciously weigh in on the average consumer's decision to purchase, eg does the product have a positive online presence (memes, twitter feuds etc), is it good/bad for the planet etc etc you get the idea. Also your purchasing habits will usually trump all other factors, McDonald's and Disney had the right idea getting kids hooked on their products early. If you buy the same thing every time you shop and it's doing OK for you, you won't even stop to look at other stuff.

      For larger purchases, ie home/car/equipment/whatever, most people will do a deep dive on the subject and familiarity or cultural perception of the product will only do so much.

      Ads are a big scam imo, like some form of magical thinking. I'm sure there are plenty of ways ads worm their way into my life without my knowledge, but I don't think that makes me them effective.

        >McDonald's and Disney had the right idea getting kids hooked on their products early
        I don't really buy burgers often but when I do it's McD for exactly that reason. They're the safe bet. That and the fact that when I do try other places I'm always disappointed. The last time I went to Burger King they somehow fricked up their seedless buns so the fricking skin came off and got stuck to my front teeth with every bite like a goddamn vinyl wrap. I had to scrape it off with my fingernail because it was so stuck on there. I've never seen anything like that before or since but that one experience made damn sure I'd never go back to that place. It's an absolutely horrible feeling to have your teeth coated in thin bread.

        >most people will do a deep dive on the subject
        I think you vastly underestimate how many people there are who just go "I need X, let me go get the first X I think looks good or who the salesman says is the best". I have two brothers like that. They always get the shittiest tv they can get for their money.

I can only remember one instance where a friend got a car based on the salesmans recommendations, had to trash it a few years later (no idea why, I'm not a car guy)

              I get what you're saying though, I just don't agree that most sensible people don't research big purchases. Unless you're wealthy or have never had to earn your way it just doesn't make sense and doesn't reflect what I've seen.

      Jurassic Park as a franchise annoys me a little because it's got the opposite problem. The movies are filled with all this Jurassic Park merch like lunchboxes and clothes and then they released stuff that just didn't actually look like in the movie. Like they'd sell a Jurassic Park t-shirt but the logo isn't the same as in the movies and it's got a huge "UNIVERSAL PICTURES ™" shit tacked on, or whatever it was. Am I really supposed to believe that all shirts sold have to have trademark sign slapped next to its design or anyone can copy it? You see it on all shirts that are meant to be in-universe clothing of some movie or show, marring the design. I'm not one to buy printed t-shirts like that but it just annoys me whenever I see it.

      I'm pretty sure there's an even worse example where there's way more books stacked on the table but they're not stacked over the logo. Or maybe that's in the Swedish version. That said, it actually isn't Hollywood product placement, it's straight from the book. The author was a massive macgay and just wanted his leet hacker girl to be doing it all using the same computer he used himself. He also liked Swedish b-list actor Paolo Roberto so much that he shoved him into two of the books as Lisbeth's old boxing coach who ends up fighting the villain and saving Lisbeth's friend. Really fricking weird stuff that then got really funny later on because he got caught buying sex from a prostitute and confessed on national tv that he thought she was a trafficking victim, which was the plotline he was involved with in the two books.

In the recent one it could have been replaced with any other game and it wouldn't have an effect on the story.
