Friends Product Placement Scenes
Product placement has been around for about as long the television has existed and exists in almost every TV show and movie today. Some placements are more obvious than others, some placements are done well, while some are just outright hilarious. Name a TV show, and more often than not there would have been more than one instance of embedded marketing. Friends, one of the most successful TV shows and one of the most loved sitcoms of all time, is definitely no stranger to product placement as well. From clothing to telephones, to pizza boxes, and magazine embedded marketing is seen all throughout the TV show’s 10-year long run. In the show’s 10 very successful seasons there were various episodes where different kinds of product placements are seen and ProductPlacementBlog.com has them all conveniently compiled for the curious fans.
Even superfans would be surprised at the amount of product placement on the beloved sitcom. Executive producer David Crane was great at merging obvious and subtle product placements in any kind of situation. The TV show didn’t just have embedded marketing for clothing lines, on the webpage it shows that there was product placement for almost every kind of product out in the market. There were restaurants, cameras and even candy brands featured on the show. The developers of this webpage did not miss anything when compiling all the instances of embedded marketing and laying it out for readers and fans alike to easily scroll through the countless instances that products were featured on the show.
