->''"I rewrote for {{CBS}} my screenplay for ''The Catered Affair'' which MGM had originally made with Creator/BetteDavis. Although everyone I dealt with at the network 'loved' the screenplay it seemed I was insufficiently artful in creating the forty-four or so commercial breaks (usually done ''after'' the film is made). This was the extent of everyone's interest and expertise. In the end, I suggested that they might be better off not doing movies at all--[[InsultBackfire I think they may have taken me seriously]] because for a time they did abandon producing slices of movie filler to separate the commercials from each other, the only object of their peculiar enterprise."''

->''"With such huge development costs, it's also important to remember that developers and publishers are pretty much forced to use such marketing tactics in order to simply pay the bills. So next time you're admiring [[FanDisservice Old Snake's gorgeous ass]], you can thank [=Regain®=] for making it possible. ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots MGS4]]'' isn't even the first ''Franchise/MetalGear'' game to feature product placement! In ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Snake Eater]]'' players could find and eat [=CalorieMate®=] in order to regain stamina, at which point Naked Snake would say that it tasted great... Or if that isn't good enough for you, what about those Lucky Strike cigarettes in the old two-dimensional {{MSX}} games? They were supposedly Solid Snake's favorite brand!"''

->''"The game's designers (and the products' PR departments) wanted to make damn sure you associated these endorsements with [[HyperactiveMetabolism peak health of both body and mind]]. To that end, they turned chips and soda into power-ups that could restore your health and psyche, the latter being the game's measurement of how quickly your body can naturally heal itself. So they're essentially saying you will die if you don't rabidly consume those chips and soft drinks, but they don't stop there: Should you actually die [[PocketProtector with Doritos or soda in your inventory]], they will bring you back to life. As far as Peace Walker is concerned, junk food is the new Jesus Christ."''

The Coke execs quickly realized after ''Leonard'' and ''{{Film/Ishtar}}'' stiffed (along with the shamefully brand name-stuffed ''Mac and Me'') that making hit movies is a lot harder than marketing syrupy bubble water, and they got out of the game soon after. But this means that ''Leonard Part 6'', one of the lasting testaments to this “[[IncompetenceInc synergy]]”, is packed so full of blatant product placements that all you can do is sit and stare in abject horror."''
