    Obvious product placement/advertising on Ugly Betty

    Anyone see the blatant advertising of Cherry 7up on Ugly Betty tonight (E4 21:00). This is quite comman practice on US shows, but looks so tacky. BTW is cherry 7UP available in the UK? it looks quite nice (the design on the can anyway).

    Yeah it makes me go out and buy it or at least try it. So it serves it purpose. I also wanted to buy an Aston Martin when watching Casino Royale... pity my bank balance didn't allow it!

    type the words "cherry 7up on ugly betty" in google and you'll see that when this was first shown in the US ppl were discussing this.

    Product placement is now usual in the US. It recently became legal here but it has been going on here for years as well.

    Is available. They sell it in the newsagents by work it's really nice.
