Product Placement Gone Mad

I saw the new Fantastic Four film last night which was pretty good.

There was the usual blatant product placement all over it but one piece just left me open mouthed. Mr Fantastic builds a very funky FantasticFourmobile, flying, jet, ship thing which has a Dodge grill and Dodge seats. WTF?

Yes, Dodge as in the shit American cars – sorry the Charger was a LONG time ago. Why, would “the greatest mind of the 21st century” do that?

Update: Saw this over at – now product placement itself is film news.
