Re: Commercials: Like It Or Hate It?
One of the purposes to making a movie is to make money. Inventing fake brands doesn't suit that purpose. Besides, showing me that a character drives a Greenhilt doesn't tell me anything about him Showing him driving a BMW does.

I particularly like the companies that track my preferences and tailor their ads to me. I've found out about new books from favorite authors, and new items I want to buy, because Amazon puts ads (recommendations) based on what I've bought in the past. This means fewer ads for products that don't interest me.
Recently, I saw the ad for the next Order of the Stick book on this site, and have already pre-ordered it. Hooray for that commercial!
