ho ever knew that the name of this movie came from such a seemingly innocuous kitchen cooking ingredient? I especially love the way that Ben Affleck and the producers worked such a little known product name into such a huge yet little known international incident from more than 30 years ago!
Anyway, you have to wonder what a product name placement as huge as this will do for such an often overlooked kitchen corn starch product. Of course you’ve probably heard by now that “ARGO” was the punchline to a bad knock-knock joke. Yeah, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me either but I’m hoping the movie will clear some of that up.
It’s like that documentary made by Morgan Spurlock a little bit ago called “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”. Hilarious. He only shows and features items in the documentary that the companies of said products agree to sponsor for product placement fees in the documentary about product placements. Brilliant.
I guess Mr. Affleck is on his way to another couple of Oscars through much of the same approach. Ben can be like, “Hey Matt Damon how you like ‘dem Sun-Maid Growers’ apples?
