Product placement tends to make an appearance in many films and TV shows. Brands that are advertised usually get a fair deal and are shown in a good light, however, the same can't be said for Reebok in the film 'Jerry Maguire'.

I think a vid about Product Placement by Fact Fiend and Tom Scott being released at the same time is pretty neat, wether it was a coincidence or a deal. I'd love to hear if there was a story there or not one day. Great content as usual, thanks for telling stories, not just reading off bullet points!

Not just on the similar topics but using two of the same clips to illustrate their points. The two videos also appeared right next to each other in my subscription feed so the coincidence was pretty hard to miss. :D

It was a coincidence. We’re months ahead on content and there’s no rhyme or reason to our recording schedule. We literally just pick a random article from the archives on days we record.

Advice for you on controller: turn off the controller, flip up the rubber bit on the inside, put about an eyedropper's worth of rubbing alcohol in that and roll the stick around. Turn it back on - should work. Maybe re-align it in system settings if "always to left" or something like that

citation needed but I heard: 75% of professional football players salary savings are spent on personal care bills... and then divorces, because it's hard to tell when they're fake sometimes, will split those savings in half again. and it might be repeated a few times... it's surprising how fast a retired NFL superstar can lose all his money

The wetherspoons thing was massively taken out of context and twisted by the media. I have worked for the company in the past and have family that still do. He said that the company did not have the resources to pay all 43,000 staff out of pocket and had to rely on the job retention scheme. That's fair. He said that there may be a delay in people receiving wages until they had all the information and in a time of such uncertainty again thats fair. He fair that should people wish to find employment elsewhere they were free to do so in the knowledge that their job would be waiting for them when they could reopen, more than fair So, what's the problem?

You can send joycons for repair for fucking free though, even if they are out of warranty. They have literally announced that more than once. Why doesnt any motherfucker just send them in for repair at the pricetag of free?

i think reebok still came off a lot better, not many people remember that line, the main one they remember is show me the money, the fuck reebok is gone out of their heads an hour later, for reebok to walk away with that amount and probably very little damage to brand is a win, and they did get a mention however bad, and publicity like this years later, regardless of it being bad they are getting their name out there for free.

I'm I the only person owning a Nintendo Switch since launch day and never had drift issues on any of my four joy-cons or my pro controller? I was so scared hearing about drifting, I bought extra analogue sticks to change them out, but I never needed them... The only malfunction occuring to my equipment was that the SL/SR - LED ribbon cable was cut off by itself, twice, in the same joy-con...

Weirdest product placement, in its later seasons the SiFi original series Eureka was Sponsored by Gillette. So like through the episode there would just be Gillette deodorant sitting places that makes no sense for it. Like they're in a top secret super high tech SiFi science lab and there is just a random deodorant on the table with all the computers and wires and stuff...and it's like every episode multiple times

The reason Nintendo is winning that case is because its been found that the drift is caused by 1 of 2 reasons 1: Out of date software that Nintendo provides: you can fix this via the settings menu 2: Dust getting into the joycon: Nintendo is arguing that this is not their fault: you can fix this with a can of compressed air If those fail then there is a recalibration option in the settings menu for the joy con. None of this is on the Nintendo websites and I had to find it through IRitem

My brother's PS4 controller had insane drift on the left stick, to the point where pushing full forward resulted in the character walking, rather than running. I took the pad apart and sprayed a little "Switch cleaner" lubricant into the left pots, and put it back together. Perfection. It's probably something similar on your switch controllers... good luck getting inside with those tri-wing security screws though.

Tiger & Bunny has its 8 superhero characters wear logos all over their costumes. Look up one of the OPs on youtube and you'll see what I mean. It's not actually distracting in the episodes but it is funny. I will go to Wetherspoons but probably just my brothers one since they treated all the staff well. Like he was furloughed straight away and paid 80% of his average salary instead of contracted. It's a shame that sort of thing isn't more universal and I hope all the employees at those places are able to find somewhere that treats them right.

just a note for you nintendo switch, in handheld mode, aftermarket joycons tend to work for me better. I have a zelda edition one with a d pad and that control stick never drifts, however it doesn't have remote control, and i generally use the pro controller anyway. Joycon specific games are gimmicky anyway, and motion sensing exists in the console so playing in handheld with substandard joycons for the sake of no drift is a payoff i like. And they are generally cheaper because they have simpler components and doesn't have the fatal carbon strip design flaw. Pressurized air does help the existing ones a fair bit because drift is reading the carbon dust particles that come frome the anode scratching a carbon strip to register movement. also if you manage to break the push button on a joycon, idk from rage quitting and throwing it or something like i did, the drift goes away altogether, though at loss of a button i don't really use anyway. it also doesn't register slight movement when the stick is pressed down so that usually will reset the drift, but you probably knew that. Just 2 cents from the peanut gallery

You MIGHT be able to get nintendo to fix them, depending where you live. IT's also possible to get a pair of thumbsticks for around $10 (canadian, idk how much it is there) and replace them yourself. More work but much quicker. Otherwise you could look to join one of the class action lawsuits, and look forward to a 43 cent cheque sometime next decade. Woo.

Fun fact, Reebok also sponsored the ground-breaking Super Mario Bros. movie. Their logo can be seen a few times, but the scene that everyone remembers (of those unfortunate enough to actually watch the movie, of course) is the shoes of the Bob-omb as seen through the grate, right before blowing up President Koopa. Best. Product Placement. (by Reebok) Ever.

"It's like people only do things because they get paid, and that's just really sad" said a wise man wearing a Reebok suit. For real though, I'll fix your joycons. I've opened and repaired both of mine and some of my friends. I miss the days when you could crack your Gameboy against a brick wall and the wall would be the thing that breaks, now your controllers fall apart from just playing them normally. You have no choice but to learn electrical repair just to avoid going broke getting new ones.
