Product Placement History Almost as Good as Coke

Mmmm that’s a delicious Classic Coca-Cola. Oh, hi there! I didn’t notice you because I was drinking a thirst quenching beverage. Have you ever wondered about the history of product placement in films? Well, this handy little video is for you! Just like the taste of Coca Cola!

  • I’ll watch this when I have time tonight! I believe one of the very first instances of product placement was 44 Magnum from Dirty Harry. Its sort of spiraled out of control from there.

    Has anyone seen Mike Judge’s Idiocracy? Its pretty funny, and exposes some scary truths too.

  • I don’t know if that gun counts, because I don’t think it was a paid placement. They just wanted a huge gun to show off with.

    And yeah, Idiocracy is great. “I’m bating!”
