In building a reality that suspends disbelief, moviemakers must pay attention to the smallest details—to make sure the world they've created is consistently styled. This means not only creating an engaging plot, but filling in the everyday occurances like the ads that inhabit these worlds.
Well, Screen Junkies has done us all a solid and culled together the best of the best fake commercials in real movies. Sometimes the spots were incidental, buried on a TV in the background, and sometimes they played a more central role.
The movies represented here include Robocop, Goodfellas, Wreck-It Ralph, Anchorman, Tropic Thunder, Jack and Jill, Jingle All the Way, Toy Story, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Serenity, Ghostbusters, Happy Gilmore, Batman, Lost in Translation, Anchorman 2, Prometheus, Punch-Drunk Love, Donnie Darko, Requiem for a Dream, Talladega Nights, The Running Man, Tommy Boy, Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Truman Show, UHF, Westworld, The Wolf of Wall Street, Total Recall, Beetlejuice, Coming to America, Dodgeball, Halloween III, I Robot, Robocop 2 and Starship Troopers.
And the results are fantastic.
