Product Placement...

july 12, 2001

Sometimes product placement in movies are fine and cool (like the BMWs in the new Bond films). But then there are other times when it's just plain laughable. The latest one that I saw was the Palm product placement in Final Fantasy. Late in the movie we see two characters using computers to talk with each other and in the corner of the computer screen we see the "Palm Powered" logo. Sigh That just ruined things because it seemed so out of place. Yes, I'm a Palm investor and I love any exposure for the company, but this one just felt really silly.
