The Product Placement Oscars
As it’s Oscar season, and the great and good of the acting world are
being drowned in accolades, we felt it was time to reward the brands and
products that work so hard to get our attention in the movies we watch.
So we created this infographic to highlight some of the hardest
working, best placed and most ubiquitous brands in film. While sometimes
their presence can be grating, we decided to stop worrying and learn to
love product placements.
The most prestigious award on offer is the ‘Michael Bay Award’ for
most products placed in a film. Named after the director who has
dedicated his career to financing his many explosions and special
effects by cramming as many products into his film possible.
This year’s award goes to Entourage, which outdid Bay himself by
including over sixty product placements into its running time. So if any
of you left this movie with a strange urge to go shopping, now you know
are our passion, we had to reward the best product placement of a watch
in a movie. Fighting off stiff competition from the Tissot in Mission
Impossible and Hamilton from The Martian, the winner was Omega for its
scene stealing performance in Spectre.
himself a won our 'walking billboard&~39; award. This is to
recognise the super-spy’s sterling and unflinching efforts when it comes
to product placement.
We had fun making this infographic, so we hope you enjoy seeing who won awards in all of our categories.
