Smallville – Brought to you by Microsoft

Despite the poor writing and mediocre acting, I’ve been a Smallville fan since it first aired 10 seasons ago, but something has really caught my eye recently.

That “thing” is the excessive amount of Microsoft Windows Phone product placement shots that we have been force fed the last few episodes.

Not only are we saddled with Windows Phone commercials during the break, but we are fed the same crap during the show as well?  Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Windows Phone, but the amount of in-show advertising is a little extreme.  I wonder if this type of advertising is going to eventually backfire on Microsoft.  I guess only time will tell.

  1. I’m a big Smallville fan and have noticed a partnership with Microsoft. I have seen lots of Windows Mobile shots in the show, but not Windows Phone. Can you tell me what season and/or episodes they used Windows Phone? Thanks!
