21 Movies That Were Basically Just One Long Ad
We’re not naive, we know all movies are trying to sell us something. Hollywood is America and America is capitalism, whatever. There’s no problem with a nice subliminal messaging campaign every once and a while or an envy-worthy scene making us wonder if we should have bought that Forever 21 skirt after all, but some movies took their product placement a little too far. If we can’t watch a movie without wondering why Superman goes to IHOP so often or what Krispy Kreme doughnuts have to do with the Power Rangers, their marketing could probably have been a tiny bit more subtle.
These twenty-one films really overdid it with product placement to the extent that they were basically just one long advertisement.
