It will take a geekier geek than me to properly parse this fun-looking list of the top 25 fictional ads in sci-fi movies. I have a moderate Doctor Who habit, but I haven't seen the majority of the movies highlighted here, much less the fictional ads they contain. (The spot above is from Robocop 2, for Sunblock 5000.) Doctor Who (Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America) has little in-story advertising—except for that seven-year product placement back in the 1970s, courtesy of Tom Baker, for Jelly Babies.
