definition of product placement
Definition of Product Placement
  • Inclusion of branded products, logos, or insignia in a movie, TV show, or other media (including music videos, novels, and videogames).
  • Plug versus Placement:
    • a “plug” is an on-camera mention of a brand, usually delivered by a celebrity.
    • Placement usually integrates a brand into a scene or story line.
pervasiveness of placements
Product placements amounted to $2.21 billion in 2005 (Lazar, 2006).

In 2005, there were 108,000 instances of product placement in TV Shows; a 30% increase from 2004

La Ferle & Edwards (2006) found 1 placement per 3 minutes of prime-time TV programming

As much as 75 percent of all prime time scripted shows on U.S. television include some element of brand placement (Consoli, 2004).

Example: Mac/Apple: During the first 4 months of 2006, TV shows mentioned or showed Apple products at least 250 times.

types of placements
Types of placements
  • Visual: a branded product serves as a prop in the scenery or background
  • Audible: A character refers to a brand by name
  • Use: A character uses a product
  • Integrated: the brand is integrated into the story line.
    • Integrated placements are the most effective
  • Virtual placements: (digitally added after the fact)
theoretical frameworks
Theoretical frameworks
  • Mere exposure: repeated exposure to a brand increases liking for the brand
  • Associative networks: the images and associations with the characters or story “rubs of” on the brand
  • Psychological reactance: movie-goers might rebel if they think their freedom to avoid advertising is being restricted

  • Example: Pontiac sold 1,000 Solstices within an hour after the car was featured on an episode of The Apprentice in April 2005.
