Do you really need a drama to be entertained by a dream?

So basically this only with product placement. https://www.youtube...watch?v=AoQWwtkyhVg

So easy it happens by accident [a1, May 05 2023]

I for one would like to go back to the reality I came from now. https://nypost.com/...ueen-as-ambassador/

       So basically a 1.5 hour commercial where the products are the heroes? Better than those spandex puncher movies I guess. [+]

       What [xenzag] is going to say.

       It'd have to be a mockumentary.

       Reality is nibbling at the edges of this: you will only get the co-operation of the US military for your film if the US military looks good in the film; the character can use an Apple phone in a film, unless that character is the baddie, in which case they can't.

       Need drama to be entertained? Yeah, probably. Paraphrasing Clarke, "... the movies of Utopia would be terribly dull."
a1, May 04 2023
  

       Looking at this afresh, I think this actually could be very entertaining, make it a comedy. The inappropriate and awkward uses of product placement to save the day could be hilarious. "Hand me that roll of Scotch Brand tape (tm) now I'll attach this Bic razor, that guarantees a close shave to the ignitor wire... give me that refreshing Pepsi light!" "Why?" "It's low calorie refreshment that helps me relax through stressful times like trying to defuse a bomb."

       // trying to defuse a bomb //   

       But in [chronological]'s version "everyone does awesome things and every behaviour is GOOD and there is no badness" - there would be no bombs. Except for the film itself.
a1, May 04 2023
  

       [+] Of course there's no badness. Every person is a product and can't risk losing customers.

       Maybe it's a friendly bomb
pocmloc, May 04 2023
  

       I was gonna say, it's a friendly bomb.
doctorremulac3, May 04 2023
  

       When I hear “friendly bombs,” the first thing I think of still has badness. (link)
a1, May 05 2023
  

       Hey! Slough is not entirely bad!
pocmloc, May 05 2023
  

       // Slough is not entirely bad! //   

       Maybe it was in 1937.
a1, May 05 2023
  

       Theoretically, theory and reality are the same.
pashute, May 08 2023
  

       In theory, there should be no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

       Here at Camp Teacup, we play a Bingo-card-type/drinking game while watching any ordinary show--comedy, drama, comedic cooking show, dramatic sports event, current and classic movies (NOT including the actual commercials, where's the fun in that?!)--we mark the square/take a drink anytime we catch product placement.   

       When watching US sitcoms, we are drunk before the first commercial break.

       Um... okay...
