Anonymous asked: I am really curious about product placement in television and movies and was wondering about TFIOS appearing in Orange is the new Black.

fishingboatproceeds:

Yes, I paid OITNB to call me a sick fuck.

No, I didn’t. The show’s creator is a fan of the book and a friend of mine and I’ve met a bunch of people in the cast, which I assume is why they did it, but yeah I was delighted. It was not, however, a paid product placement.

In an episode of The Simpsons entitled “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” (Season 2, Episode 15), at the request of his newly-discovered half-brother Herb, Homer designs a new car: “The Homer.” It’s the car of Homer’s dreams, a car for the “average” American, a car so ridiculous and expensive that it completely ruins Powell Motors his half-brother’s business.

That hilarious episode first aired back in 1991. Now, more than twenty years later, engineers at Porcubimmer Motors have created The Homer for real, complete with a bubble dome, a horn that plays “La Cucaracha,” and, we’re guessing, an engine that sounds like “the world’s coming to an end.”
