    Do you realize conservatives argued against nutrition labels, complaining about cost. If it were not for the liberals you would not have those labels...

    It must get even more confusing when yet another diet fad comes out and makes one sort of field for the nutrition label the spawn of Satan.

    Yawn. Spare us the plot summaries. The Mayor is old enough to have seen those movies in the theater.

    Taco Bell chosen, among other reasons, for it's humor impact.

    NOTHING subliminal there.

    9 Apple Computer
    Mission:Impossible and Independence Day
    Fortunately, the Mayor's taste and good sense prevented him from wasting money on Mission Impossible in the theater. The Mayor has always regretted wasting money on that awful sad pathetic film "Independence Day", which was apparently a science fantasy written by eighth graders for sixth graders who had a hardon for Hillary Clinton.

    The Apple computer was blatant, and what was more perfect for a retarded movie than the assumption that a computer falsely advertised as not being subject to viruses would be the best vehicle to transmit a virus?

    8 Mercedes Benz
    The Lost World: Jurassic Park
    Oh.

    The Mayor didn't realize that The Lost World, (The Mayor doesn't waste movie dollars on second rate sequels) was the only film to ever feature a Mercedes.

    The Mayor recalls a movie titled "License to Drive" which had a much much nicer Mercedes in it.

    7 Dodge
    Twister
    Now, if the Mayor isn't going waste money on bad sequels, he's not going to waste money on some throw-up crap Spielberg vomits out in-between real movies. Was "Twister" the only film to ever feature a Dodge? That's possible.

    Speaking of Dodge, James Arnez died....

    ....you ever wonder what he and Miss Kitty did between the scenes?

    6 FedEx
    Cast Away
    Not product placement. Not subliminal. A completely necessary plot device for which no other courier service would suffice. No other service has universal brand recognition to the point of having become a verb.

    No one says "UPS it". No one says "DHL it".

    People said "FedEx it" all the time, back then.

    Another dog of a film with a whiny liberal past his career prime. The Mayor has never seen the entire film. The Mayor has read Robinson Crusoe.

    5 Mello Yello
    Days of Thunder
    Damn, boy, you watch all the dog films, the two-fisted gaggers, the movies that can't cut the mustard, and cut the cheese big time, don't you? Why don't you watch quality films like "They Live", "Attack of the Killer Bimbos", and other culturally significant icons? No, you call up not only another past-his prime has been (twice in one post), but he's advertising crappola no one drinks. Nothing subliminal there.

    There's never anything subliminal about product placement advertising in movies. Christ, dig up "Wayne's World", okay, for a lesson?

    4 The Miami Dolphins
    Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
    From bad to worst. Did you know that the Mayor's two young daughers were excited that Mr. Popper's Penguins was coming out as a movie. Then they saw Jim Kerry in the ads and told their father the Mayor, they said, "Mayor, we don't want to see that. HE's in it".

    The Mayor raises kids with class.

    3 Subway
    Happy Gilmore
    Subway wasn't the major product placement event in that movie. (The first film you chose that is worth watching once).

    Noooo.....nooooo....it's terribly obvious what the most important product placement was in that film.

    Bob Barker.

    2 Pepsi
    Back to the Future
    Oooo....you're on a roll. Two movies with some merit. Again, the product placement wasn't subliminal.

    How many people rushed out to buy a de Lorean after the film came out? How many people raided the old record stores for a copy of "16 Tons"?

    1 Reese’s Pieces
    E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
    Oooops...now you're striking out.

    Do you think it was subliminal to leave a trail of a brand new candy throughout the film?

    You know what you're missing? The concerted effort DELL made to enure Judge Ito had himself a DELL computer right there on his desk in front of the camera.

    Most amusing of all was the penchant of tobacco companies to pay the toppest of top dollars for the billboard space right behind the batter. They weren't advertising their product on TV, they were clearly trying their hardest to make sure the outfielders got the urge to smoke. That those spots were broadcast to millions of households in America was completely beside the point. It took the Tobacco Nazis DECADES to notice. Neither subliminal nor blatant advertising can get the attention of the brain damaged.

    This is the one that really started it all. Although product placement had been around before 1981, this movie put the practice into overdrive. No one will ever forget E.T. croaking out the words “Reese’s pieces” as he happily munches his way down the trail that Elliot has left for him. Interestingly, Spielberg wanted to originally use M&Ms, but couldn’t secure the rights. Hershey’s, who own Reese’s, stepped up and the rest is history.
    Do you really believe that ET was the movie that started product placement advertising in films.? Or was that just the first film you remember seeing in a theater?
