Product Placement Hell

Over the last year I've noticed more and more product placements in everything from movies to TV shows. It's gotten pretty annoying when they change the flow of a whole show just to pimp out the fact that Dunken Donuts sells coffee (ALA USA's Psych).

however, it isn't the worst. Over at cracked they came up with The 10 Most Shameless Product Placements in Movie History

OK, I was scared there for a moment. When I was a Trop, my friend's job was gettin' those placements. I really didn't want to call and tell her she made THAT list. sure does work. When we made Will & Grace, sales shot up, of exactly that product shown, by 26%. I remember it very clearly. We were ALL amazed....
