Lady Gaga’s epic new music video for Telephone continues to prove itself as the currently most discussed video. Since its release, the video continues to be an interesting topic on online magazines, blogs and social networking sites for being too provocative. But the video’s blatant product placements is currently the new trending topic. Obviously, the stir is inevitable as the video is branding at least 10 products(!) in less than ten minutes.
Branding in videos is nothing new. It has been a common practice for artists to have their music videos sponsored by a company or two. But “Telephone” really gives a whole new meaning to ‘product placement’. And Lady Gaga could be the greatest saleswoman on the planet right now. Here are screenshots of what the fame monster sells.
