Wait...this is so last week, but I think that was the point. Reese's Pieces were huge and they weren't thrown in your face during E.T. Today's advertising is obnxious and I have no desire to buy any of the product

I don't understand why they have to do it in such an obvious way. Why not have Ciara come in and ask for some Cheerios? Or if it's supposed to be an early morning scene, have a shirtless James Scott or Jay Kenneth Johnson walk through the room eating out of the box. I'm pretty suggestible. Last night I was watching an old episode of Friends, and Joey walked in the room with a bag of potato chips. I really wanted some. I'm still thinking about them. I don't even like potato chips.
lol! But it's so true. Did ET ever stand there and extol the virtues of Reese's pieces? No. He just ate them! Not sure why all these blatant advertisements are necessary.
ET is so long ago, so it´s not the best example. Today´s product placement is much more aggresive. And the DAYS product placement obviously works. People register it, people talk about it, no matter how much they laugh or ridicule it the name of the product is building a place in their memory. That´s all the company want.
