Product Placement in Movies

Apple Product Placement

Every once in a while, when you leave the cinema hall, you feel the craving to go shopping, why does that happen? Because of the product placement, the men involved in placing the product in the movie, do a fantastic job. Since the Oscars are just few days away, we at Watches2U have come up with own set of awards, the product placement Oscars. Our infographic highlights some of the most hardworking, and excellent product placement, while the product placements may sometimes feel indulgent, we decided to stop worrying, and begin to love product placements.

We divided the awards in various categories, first being the most prestigious award of the lot, “Michael Bay Award” for most products placed in a movie. Its named after the director, who is well known to use product placement rather extensively. “Entourage” won the award beating “Transformers: Age of extinction” directed by Michael Bay himself. Second category is the best product placement of a watch in a movie. Hardest working brand, focuses on the brand which shares maximum screen time than its counterparts. And last but not the least, best tech and communications product placement in a movie, and the nominees were, Samsung and Apple. We had fun making this infographic, and we do hope that you would feel the same.
