When I watch TV shows and movies I look around for product placement. Must be a residual from being a child of the ‘60s where every kids TV show had a toy that went with it. I learned from a very early age that the toys didn’t do what the commercial showed them doing so after a few I MUST HAVE purchases my mom didn’t have to worry about me sending her to the poorhouse. I looked at each commercial during the Saturday morning cartoon hours with a “yeah, sure” attitude.
However now I am walking around with a Pan Am flight bag (the only swag I wanted from San Diego Comic Con), wear a Buffy watch by Fossil and have an Illyria bust on my car dash where others would place a Jesus or St Christopher statue.
