Freakazoid filmmaker David Lynch minces no words when asked his opinion on product placement in movies. Just watch. There's nothing else to say. Classic. Simply classic.

I love it when celebrities are candid, and not in a self-conscious way. I agree with David, mostly. I'd hate to see the camera linger over product placement in a movie scene where it isn't pertinent to the story. But, if there's some element or quality of the a product that boosts the storyline or character development, I'm willing to play along.

Great example: In HBO's Entourage, Turtle and Johnny are playing Xbox in at least one scene of every other episode. Is it a product placement or just part of the lifestyle? I wonder if HBO's getting a cut of the action?
