Is Product Placement the Savior or the Scourge of Entertainment?

Hundreds shared their opinions at this week's #AdweekChat

As movies, TV and video become increasingly flexible, on-demand forms of entertainment, most types of advertising have struggled to keep pace. The big exception? Product placement.

That's why we dedicated this week's #adweekchat to the issue of product placement. When does it work? When does it derail a story for the sake of a plug?

More than 340 marketers and movie buffs joined the conversation, so check out a selected transcript below to see the questions and some of our favorite answers.
