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.


Setting matters. This is not a contemporary urban setting where one might plausibly have products like this. The game takes place in a world where the very fabric of country and society has broken down. Who the hell would be manufacturing these?

Dude, don't be silly. You can just buy them with bottle caps!
