A Selection of Brands’ Responses to Their Products’ Depiction on TV and Film

Placing brand named products on either the big or small screen can be a tricky feat. Even if a movie or TV show is actually being sponsored by a particular company and is contractually bound to include them in the script, the company isn’t always happy with the way it’s represented. But the stakes can be even higher when products or references appear without the brand’s consent, especially if the corporate powers that be think they’re being shown in a negative light. After the jump, inspired by Jaguar’s perturbed response to their inclusion in last week’s Mad Men, we’ve collected a selection of amusing brand responses to their portrayal on TV and film.
