Product sub-placement

Subtle enough ?

Advertisers already pay for their products to be subtly (or not-so-subtly) incorporated into TV programmes.

They also pay for explicit TV adverts.

This idea is for product placement within adverts.

Perhaps the advert is for breakfast cereal; fine, but in the jolly domestic morning scene with parents and children, the kitchen appliances are all clearly from a specific manufacturer.

The advert could be for a car; the driver is seen filling it with fuel at a specific brand's station - or the advert could be for the fuel, and it's the car that's the "placed" product.

The company pays for the "embedding" of their product and gets a little bit more subtle exposure at minimal cost.

Then again, this may already be happening.

       Nice idea. There's a small chance that it could get confusing if the product placement within the commercial is for a TV show or film which clashes with the TV show or film the commercial is being shown during.

       This could go further - the Samsung TV in the background of the kitchen in which Bisto is being admired could be showing an advert for B&Q, in which a happy shopper wearing Levis is buying a Bosch powerdrill.

       Would this ultimately end in promoting one sort of branded molecules over any other type?

       You can't really brand molecules - the heat generally oxidises them.

       Clearly, you haven't tried Brand-o brand molecules. You can brand *them* over and over again. Studies show images of genial men in lab coats. Order now while stocks last.

       Genious!!! Get back at those ads by inserting your own into it!   

       But then how do you stop Pepsi from trolling the Coke ads?   

       And where does the sub hide? I understand that the whole underworld is already mapped, and no submarine can get away.
