The Cyber Slacker Catch-Up

  • If Superheroes Had Product Sponsors

We’ve all seen product placement in movies. Movies such as Skyfall, Taken 2, Paranormal Activity, The Twilight Saga, Ted, and Argo that were in theaters in 2012-featured brands from Apple to Adidas, Coke Zero to Xbox, and Toyota to KFC.

Superhero movies aren’t exempt from product placements either; The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spiderman featured Doritos, Ben & Jerry’s, Greyhound, Budweiser and many more.  Seeing a product placed in a scene here and there doesn’t bother most movie buffs, but what if it was taken to a whole new level and brands started sponsoring Superheroes?  Thanks to Roberto Vergati Santos – Sponsored Heroes we can catch a glimpse of just that:
