Product placement in movies has been a relatively recent arrival on the scene, at least outside of some historic car movie moments. Though they can sometimes overstep their bounds, occasionally a synergistic relationship can be cultivated, and memorable movie moments are born as a result. (Let's just not talk about how folks are trying to insert products retroactively into older movies, though.)
Sometimes movies, for one reason or another, are able to use a real-life product (or, in one case, approximate a real-life product with a faux product that ultimately became a real-life product because of the movie) for an emotionally motivated character-building moment or narrative arc. Who is the MVP of this product placement list? America's Dad, Tom Hanks. And that's not even including Big, which details the adventures of a toy company VP. Vote up your favorite movie moments that are basically kinda-sorta advertisements, too.
