Product Placement Likened to Lego-Sized Pixels

house_dell.jpg

Perhaps in disgust over being forced to incorporate ever more sizable product placement within network television shows, the writers of House gave House these choice words to say while he stared into a gigantic Dell monitor, "Why don't I have a high-def in my office? I'm a department head. Tissue characterization is impossible when the pixels are the size of Legos." Yes, and soon product placements will be the size of the TV screen negating the need for actors at all. Oh wait, without actors, there's no shows. Without shows, there's no place to put product placements. Hmm, we better keep our product placements smaller than legos. (Oh, and for you Lego freaks, notice how he said LegoS and not Lego?)

Holy Guacamole!

Real life imitates TV. It does.

A Dr. House examined my head!!! The truth. He had Lego blocks in his office, too. A pink flamingo, and...wait, I won't go on about the details. Though, he did have a Dell. It must not work too well because it took two months to get results on a test.

Great and fun idea. Smart way to reach consumers.

So when Lego decided to build a life size Volvo SUV out of only its building blocks does that mean that was product placement for Volvo?

Does everyone need a remedial course in Photoshop 101? Image pixel size has nothing to do with Hi-Def. House needs to tell his idiot tech to SCAN at a higher resolution. He may have pixels the size of Legos, but all the Hi-Def in the world ain't gonna change that.
