|Oil Painting of Lady Gaga - by me (Sasha Fitzgerald)|
After watching Lady Gaga's music video 'Telephone', I suddenly have a hankering for Wonderbread & Miracle Whip Sandwiches, Virgin Mobile, and Plenty of Fish. Why's that?
Her music videos are full of random product placements. I decided to go on a treasure hunt to see how many I could spot in her nine minute music video 'Telephone' ft. Beyonce. Here, I present to you my findings.
The music video 'Telephone'
|Lady Gaga's brand of ear phones. I want the ones in red.|
|A tasty blend of Diet Coke Cans & Chanel Glasses|
|A fellow inmate sneakily grabs Gaga's LG cell phone (Note: Virgin Mobile)|
|Then they go for a close up shot to make sure you can read the screen|
and see the phone flips open with a little keyboard.
|HP Envy ‘Beats Limited Editon’ laptop from Monster.|
|Aha! The security guard is caught looking for love on Plenty of Fish.|
|They go in for another close up to make SURE you can see this site is|
about online dating.
|Lady Gaga, spokeswoman for Polaroid, using one of their cameras to take|
shots of Beyonce while she's singing and driving.
|Then they go in for yet ANOTHER product close up shot. Notice every|
thing is out of focus except the brand name 'Polaroid'.
|OH WHAT?! A polaroid BOOTH?!|
|And just in case you missed it, they zoom in on the word 'Polaroid'.|
|Then there's the Chevrolet, or as Gaga & B lovingly call it, the 'Pussy Wagon'|

What's your stance on product placement in music videos, television shows, and movies? Can you spot any more product placements in this music video?? Do you suddenly have an urge for a wonderbread sandwich and an LG cell phone, too?
