A History of Obvious Product Placement in Movies


Our good friends over at FilmDrunk have taken the time to craft this rather informative video, which chronicles conspicuous product placement in movies. As it turns out, the practice goes all the way back to 1919, and though it’s gotten more obvious over the years, it’s not exactly a new concept.

I’ll give you one guess to figure out who earned the “whore award” for most brands in a single film. Yes, who else but Michael Bay, with a record 47 logos appearing onscreen at some point or another during Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. I knew there was a reason that movie was two and a half hours long.
