Coke, M&M, Johnson's, Jesus Bitch About Product Placement


If you really want to know how product placement discussions go at FOX or at any other television network, check out this possibly crappy but maybe not so much video featuring a bottle of Johnson's Baby Sampoo, a bottle of Coke, the scrubbing bubbles guy, an M&M and Jesus as they bicker and bitch about the finer points of product placement. It's in the Huffington Post contest and was created by copywriter Jeff Greenspan and improvised with writers and performers from David Letterman, Conan O'Briend, VH1's Best Week Ever and Daily Show. While we think it's OK, new ad babe Ariel tells us it's lame.

Wow. I think I just wasted 3 minutes of my life. I will never get that back.

I liked it. As far as wasting 3 minutes of your life, if you're on this site, you're most probably in advertising, so my guess is you've wasted much more than 3 minutes.

Good point, adguy. It's not like we do anything important around here like brain surgery:-)

Or even knee surgery.

Calling it lame is being much too kind.
