Go watch "The Island", I lost count at 26 product placements.Things that didn't even make sense. It's supposed to be 2025 yet the clones were playing a virtual reality game with the original XBox logo? They thought they were the last people alive on Earth, yet they didn't question why EVERYTHING they wore was branded with popular brands? They had health "bars" with Aquafina water, WHEN THE ENTIRE WORLD WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN A POST-APOCOLYPTIC STATE? The movie begins with the main character holding up a Puma shoe, and asking "Where's my other shoe?"And slow camera shots where the camera focuses on a product, while the star drinks it?There's realistic product placement, then "f!@# me like I'm a commercial, and whore me out to every company who will buy a piece of me."
