Hawaii 5-0’s Subway Product Placement is Retarded
Product placement is nothing new, television and movies have been subtle for years and slipped in a strategically placed Pepsi sign or Tampax ad in the background of a set. People are supposed to subconsciously want to buy that product, and no one is really harmed in the end because fuck it, it was just a small Pepsi sign the character walked in front of. But Hawaii 5-0 blatantly spit in every viewers face and pockets millions from Subway in this short clip. What you see in this video is nothing more than a commercial for Subway slapped in the middle of an episode. Now, I don’t watch this piece of shit show, but I’m guessing this fat fuck eating at a table with Subway products littered everywhere wasn’t a major plot point for the episode. Not only that, but the dialogue was exactly what you’d find in an actual Subway commercial. Which means this is about as blatant as you can get. The balls on these guys! Whether they know it or not, they’re setting a precedent with this product placement. If people don’t revolt, pretty soon shows will be 12 minutes long with 20 minutes of commercials sprinkled into dialogue. It’s almost as disgusting as this fat guy eating 5 subs like it ain’t no thing.
