Product Placement

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 5:06 pm

We watched the season premiere of Burn Notice last night.

About halfway thru DH says, “The poor Cadillac.” (the car was taking quite the beating, shot at, etc.)  and I said, “It wouldn’t have happened if Cadillac had bought advertising time during the show. The car would have been okay if it was a Saab.” (Saab commercials ran during every single commercial break.)

Sure enough, at the end of the show, the main character is given a….aw, come on, you can guess this…a Saab.

While product placement often annoys me, it completely worked with this show that is so “wink-wink”

If only Mr. Coffee had jumped at the chance too….
