Re: Product placement

There's never been a clear line between movies and advertisement, as product placement has existed since the silent era (just cribbing from Wikipedia, Wings (1927) and M (1931) both have prominent product placements in them), and movies and other forms of advertisements (i.e. advertisements before and after theatrical screenings, cross-promotion in print and radio) have been linked since cinema's inception.
