NFL. Google. NBC. HBO. All instantly recognizable names and all prominently displayed in the world of television in one form or another. When one thinks of product placement, they think visual placement in the form of, let’s say, movie stars drinking a certain brand of soda, wearing t-shirts with a conspicuous logo or driving a hardly-capable subcompact car through nearly physically impossible scenarios. These are great because the company does not actually have to say anything about their product. Its simply substituted into their film, show, advertisement etc. to show the audience that this brand is represented in everyday situations. The message is clear: “It’s not unusual, and you should try it too.” On a different level, think about the songs you hear on television and in movies. Many hear certain songs and are compelled to look them up. The wildly successful iPhone app Shazam is perfect testament to this.
