Product placement and the Tivo dilemma

  1. 1. Product Placement and the SPACDilemma By: Samantha Triplett
  2. 2. What is Product Placement? • Product placement is the subtle placing of products that exposes them to the view without the view seeing it as an ad • It can be found in movies, television, and even real life
  3. 3. Origins • Product Placement was originally intended to make scenes more realistic – The first modern form of Product Placement is said to have been Reese’s Pieces in E.T. • It’s estimated that 90% of movie and almost all television product placements are free • Studios profit from free props • Companies receive free or cheaper advertising
  4. 4. Successful, Recognizable Placements
  5. 5. Subliminal Exposure • Obvious commercials are no longer as effective • Companies becoming creative in how they reach the public • Some product placements get as much air time as a minor character – Like Vitamin Water in an episode of Gossip Girl
  6. 6. Studies of Product Placement • Product Placement improves the profits of the product – After the 1997 release of Men In Black, Ray-Ban Predator 2 Sunglasses tripled their profits – After placing Gatorade into EA sports video games showed an increase of 24% of household money being spent on Gatorade – After Reese’s Pieces appeared on E.T. its sales increased by 65%
  7. 7. How to Spot Product Placement • Is it obvious? • Do you recognize it? • Is it visible? Percy Jackson: IPhone When in Rome: IPod Jesse Stone: Rolex
  8. 8. Product Placement in Movie Trailers • This Youtube video for Transformers shows (and points out) several instances of product placement that appear in the movies.
