That’s silly to me.

Oh no, I had to look at a Monster Energy can, the horror! (:

It’s not something we should necessarily celebrate, but I can’t understand caring about it all that much. This is not the first time his games had product placement.

The whole conversation around product placement is interesting. If every product in a show or a movie was a real brand we wouldn't even notice or probably care. But when it's the only thing on the screen that has a real brand you can see it sticks out in a way that annoys people.

I can only remember a couple of times it's bothered me and it was when the characters in the shows (in TWO DIFFERENT Fox TV shows) took 2-3 minutes to talk about an awesome feature of their brand new [insert car brand here]!
