Blatant Product Placement

Dear CBS,

Watching CSI:NY tonight, I saw one of the most blatant and in-your-face examples of product placement ever. Middle of the show and the guy’s cell phone goes off. The other guy says “coldplay?” and he replys “yeah! It’s called ‘Talk’.”

The song was litterally on for enough to get the chorus hook clearly heard. It was just blatantly disgusting to me. If you want to cram stuff down my throat, please do it during the regularly schedule commercial breaks. Otherwise, cancel the commercial breaks and just call it like it is.

Then, at 10:54 pm, oh wow… the main guitar riff came on from "Talk. That was fine. You didn’t need to have it in the ringtone tho.

I like Coldplay. I already bought the record. I don’t want their music crammed down my throat when watching CSI:NY. Just use it as sountrack. Don’t push it in the underhanded way.

Sincerely,
Johnny Public

UPDATE: Chad reminded me that he threw this link to the castrokids. I was watching a repeat. Had missed the first email. Funny how the reaction was just as vile.
