The NerdBrand podcast is the intersection of nerd culture, branding, and advertising.
Nerd culture is no longer an isolated subculture; it’s THE culture of the day and makes its way into our daily lives through the entertainment we seek and the technology we rely upon.
Listen as we discuss our views on visual design, branding, and advertising for movies, comics and novels, video games, technology, and other nerdy passions.

On this episode of the NerdBrand podcast, we have Josh Suiter back! So let’s discuss movies that place products in them. Josh was just elected President-Elect of the KY Chamber of Commerce Professionals, which is ironic because he loves to read books about US Presidents.
Quote from Josh: “But I’ve also taken a liking lately to Space Jam and have been watching the OG version – the newer one was ok but not as good as the original.”
New movie box office:
- Budget – $150,000,000 (estimated)
- Gross US & Canada – $70,528,072
- Opening weekend US & Canada – $31,053,362
- Gross worldwide – $162,828,072
So this movie was reviewed as a giant ad from beginning to end. When is it too far? Have you ever been taken out of the moment due to product placement? (I have Transformers 4-5 with a Bud Light Beer truck crash scene).
Some movies that did this to discuss:
Paramount with Transformers – Air Force, Chevy, and beer).Pixar – Mattel – Barbie, and nostalgic brands like Mr. Potato Head. Marvel Studios – Acura, and Burger King
