America's Next Top Model
I was watching reruns of America's Next Top Model this weekend and was completely disgusted with the amount of product placement in the show. In one particular episode the aspiring models are doing a photo shoot for a cosmetics company and they mention the product about ten times in a matter of 2 minutes. They even go into the benefits of the products. I felt like I was watching a commercial. With all the commercials already during a television show, why would I want to watch one within the show? I find it hilarious that the models on the show even had to help promote the product and make it look like natural conversation. Down with overt product placement !!!
