Weekend Discussion Thread: Product Placements

Sorry for the lateless, I have been under the weather.

Alert regular NHKrypto sez:

With all of the product placement from Coca Cola and McDonald’s in “Mac and Me,” other movies might also deserve some product placement of their own.

How about some Axe Body Spray in Cave Dwellers?

And is that Johnson & Johnson baby oil Joe Don has in Mitchell?

What’s your pick?

    The next time I nag you folks about it, remember:
    We actually DID have a WDT that edged dangerously close to “What baby oil would you spread on Joe Don Baker”? ;)

    Get well soon, Sampo!

    I don’t have any product placement ideas, but I have a link to a video that’s relevant in regards to tonight’s tv viewing. ;-)

    Coolie… they were indentured servants, originally mostly from Guyana, but then the term became more wide-spread and prolific and was applied to anyone who did work as a porter, or heavy labor, or in the case of Joel’s elephant riff, animal training.
    That’s why the bot’s bust on him for being too dark – it’s generally considered (these days) to be a derogatory term.
