Has everyone forgotten the Bones
episode where the Squints waited in line the whole episode to see Avatar
I'm sure that's why the movie was so successful.
And you remember that the revolving squint they had that week was one of the actors from Avatar?
It seemed more like a personal injoke/favour rather than the suits were conspiring.
Wasn't he a regular rotating squint before he was on Avatar?
Yes, he sure was.
It may have been an in-joke for all I know, but it was still product placement. Hilarious product placement, but still product placement.
There was a very awkward example on True Blood
last night: A close up of a Campbell's soup bowl rotating in a microwave.
