I Have A Prediction

Based on current trends, I predict that sooner or later there will be product placement in pornography.

While I'm serious about this, it is also a fruitful comic premise. I invite anyone who cares to to explore it in the comments.

(Thanks to this Bob Harris post for inspiring this enjoyable train of thought.)

I don't think it's a coincidence that this is ELEPHANT dung. Clearly, the Republican Party's already taken out campaign advertisements in this famous piece of pornography.

sexual titlation on tv shows and advertizing is now mere product placement for porn. it has less and less of an effect of wanting to buy a product for example, and more and more of an effect of many men taking it as a reminder that they haven't looked at porn today.

This may potentially bring a new meaning to the oft-used phrase "Bush Sucks"; one which, I'll admit, I don't care to ponder excessively. But that's me.

"Strategic product placement" will come to mean covering the nipples.

I see an opening for Oscar Meyer.

Jonathan: I have a picture of five women with the letters of "Bush '04" shaved into their pubic hair. I also have that picture of Alexandra Kerry from Cannes, that was so shameless I'm surprised she wasn't wearing a "Vote Kerry" ribbon slung between her breasts.

I have some porn with women draped on cars, but I think the cars are an alternative form of porn and not product placed.

Any porn movie involving someone in a maid outfit could easily have a character scrubbing with Pledge when (s)he gets buggered from behind. Or perhaps MinWax if it's a nice wooden console table.

I'm sure Chiquita would enjoy showing their labels on artfully placed produce in certain types of movies.
