I guess that means Warner Bros. can put Demolition Man up for bid.

After the Franchise Wars, all restaurants are Pizza Hut. Oh, wait. They already did that for the international market.

Maybe change Marty McFly's Pepsi Free into Dr Pepper Ten.

I wouldn't say that advertising people are the lowest form of life but it's close.

The technology to do this has been around for years. What's stopped them so far is they didn't know if they could get away with it without a backlash. Articles like this are a way to float the idea and gauge public reaction.

We need to be yelling F*CK YOOOOOOUUUUU!!!" a whole lot louder.

Thank You for Smoking (2005) already did that. Audrey Hepburn sucking on a candy cane instead of a cigarette.

Part of advertising is calling them that instead of their actual name.  Propaganda.

Although propaganda doesn't have the same ring as 'advertisement slot'.  Propaganda Executive sounds about right now.

And it's English Ireland, not Northern Ireland.

Roy Taylor, the chief executive of Californian-based business Ryff, says his firm is taking digital product insertion one stage further.
It has developed the technology whereby the product placement is targeted at individuals, and changes depending on who is watching.
So if you like wine then the hero of a film could be drinking a particular bottle that you might be tempted to try. Or if you are teetotal the star might be sipping on a bottle of branded water.


For those who didn't find the original premise to be quite dystopian enough.
