Product placement

While I was in Nashville in our hotel room, I ended up watching CSI NY. The story was some guy had been killed by a hand saw. They showed how the person was killed using the saw.

Of course, during the commercial break, we saw an ad for the very same saw. You can buy it at Sears.


Let me get this straight. Sears made a product placement for an item that was used TO KILL SOME ONE.

"Sears. Your one-stop shopping place for all your killing needs. . ."

Not such a good way to place your products if you ask me. I'm just surprised I haven't heard anything from the talking heads on this.
