Talking trash

CartoonHere’s some more product placement that may frustrate some brand managers to the point of abusing the eggnog, like Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation.

An animated Web video called “White Trash Xmas” (created a year or two back) is again making the rounds. To the tune of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” it shows Grandpa peeing in the snow, Mom and Dad playing poker on Christmas night, Cousin Eddie (or his equivalent) admiring “the rack” on one of Santa’s reindeer, and so on.

The brands of choice for the family? Skoal, Nascar and Miller Lite.

Ouch.
