Playing With / Destroy the Product Placement

Go To

Basic Trope: When Product Placement is damaged, broken or destroyed.

  • Straight: In Bob's Vengeance II, a Trope Co. store is destroyed during a particular action segment.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Trope Co. HQ is destroyed.
    • Trope Co. stores being destroyed is a Running Gag.
  • Downplayed: The Trope Co. logo is smashed off.
  • Justified: Trope Co. stores aren't any stronger than regular buildings.
  • Inverted:
    • The first building reconstructed after the city crumbles to ruins is a Trope Co. store (for whatever twisted reason).
    • Advertisement:
    • Trope Co. buildings are Made of Indestructium and remain standing even when hit with an explosion.
  • Subverted: Buildings are being demolished left to right, but Trope Co. remains intact.
  • Double Subverted: Trope Co. collapses in a later fight.
  • Parodied:
  • Zig-Zagged: There are multiple product placements, some of which are destroyed and some of which aren't.
  • Averted: The battle takes place far away from Trope Co.
  • Enforced: "We don't want this product placement deal to come off as too blatant, so how about the store gets wrecked during some action scene?"
  • Advertisement:
  • Lampshaded: "Someone's not getting their deposit back."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Implied: An overhead shot shows the city a Trope Co. store is in being blown up by tons of explosives.
  • Deconstructed: A Trope Co. store is destroyed during a non-eventful action scene, and this leaves the impression that all Trope Co. buildings have flimsy design.
  • Reconstructed: A Trope Co. car is shown being utterly wrecked but saves the lives of the inhabitants and isn't even a case of shilling - the original writer was looking for plausible wrecks that would provoke No One Could Survive That! reactions that someone actually lived through and Trope Co. was behind one account.

Enjoy a nice glass of Product P[BAM]ent.
