Sex and the City Supercut Shows How Much It Loved Name-Dropping Brands Manolo Blahnik. Manolo Blahnik. Manolo. Blahnik!

Sex and the City's leading ladies—Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte—turned everything from Manolo heels to sex swings into household names during the series' run on HBO.

To show the women's love affair with consumer culture, artist Pierre Buttin clipped every single brand mention throughout the six seasons, alphabetized them and then presented them in the nearly 10-minute clip below.

The humble Post-it came in at eighth place with 14 mentions, but probably left the most lasting brand impression. Because, seriously, who breaks up with someone via Post-it?
