I'm embarassed to say that on occasion I watch the Vampire Diaries, and the product placement in that show (including a lot of windows phone and android) is shameless. They're in every scene and actually integrate themselves rather clunkily into entire plot devices. Just in the last episode a main character, when asked how they can find out the address of a company, actually theatrically pulls out a windows phone (i think htc) and exclaims: "We could BING it!"

I don't watch the show and never heard of it, but I saw a Windows Phone commercial at the movie theatre. It was the one with Ben the PC Guy challenging the couple at the outdoor cafe to see whether the woman's iPhone 5 or the Nokia Lumia 920 took a better picture at night. Ben had a yellow 920. The woman picked a red 920.
That's the video I saw.
Prior to that, there was another ad that showed off more 920s in various colours and 8Xs in various colours.--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

I know Hawaii 5-0 had some terrible Subway product placements too.
I don't blame the shows because everybody is skipping the commercials now days. Just wish they could do a better job of writing them into the story. It's almost like watching Truman Show where she would stop doing everything she was doing and looked at the camera and did a commercial while he sat there staring at her wondering what she was doing.

I was watching a program today (I think it was Emmerdale) and spotted someone looking at pictures on a phone with a bright blue back. Could tell by the design it was a Nokia Lumia.Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'.

My wife just gets a kick out of me pausing a show to see if I can Identify the phone in the scene. I get all excited when it is a WP...."So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work during the days God gives them under the sun."

There's no worse worse offender in product placement than the Bond franchise, everyone and their mum seemed to have those crap sony ericsson phones in Skyfall - Bond, Javier Bardem, the WHOLE of MI6. I still remember turning to my friend in the cinema during Casino Royale and actually saying out loud 'what the F***?!' when in the middle of a scene, the girl suddenly asks Bond:
'That's a very sexy watch.......what is it, a Rolex?'
Bond: 'No, actually it's an OMEGA.'
I usually mind less when the products are actually decent but those bond phones are abysmal. Loving the lumia presence in Vampire Diaries, but seriously, regardless of your feelings for google - who the **** says the phrase 'Why don't we bing it?!'
