Advertising nonstop

So I'm going through today's feeds, and there's a just-slightly-clever music video. The music is shitty, the theme is infantile, but it has some pretty cool visual effects in it. I'm considering adding it to the list when I notice that every 20 seconds, there's a blatant product placement for a certain notably-shitty beer.

And not even clever product placement: more like, "we ham-handedly photoshopped in a bottle of beer into every scene that didn't include someone driving, and only omitted those because the Comics Code Authority or whatever says we can't."

It didn't end with a sarcastic "DRINK RESPONSIBLY" banner, so I guess they don't literally believe that this was a commercial. This must mean it's an attempt to do an end-run around someone's advertising guidelines.

No, obviously I'm not linking to it.

Previously, previously.

    Someone's ascribing to the Bill and Ted school of product placement, but missed the class where they explained satire, then?
