“Product placement” — on The Sopranos?

On last Sunday’s episode of the popular HBO show, a commercial for Boston-based James Sokolove, known for his ubiquitous sue-’em-now ad campaigns, could be heard playing on James Gandolfini’s television set. Was it a deliberate product placement? (Carol Beggy & Mark Shanahan, “Fenway plans fail to materialize”, Boston Globe, Apr. 4) (via Schaeffer).

  • I just watched that episode last night (yes, I’m a week behind), but I heard maybe 1.5 seconds of some legal ad…. Perhaps y’all are super-sensitive to that particular one?
