Hollywood Huggin’ Part II

So I saw the masterpiece that is Snakes on a Plane this weekend. There were some very obvious product placements in the movie, including Kawasaki Motorcycles, Dell Computers (all the overhead monitors on the plane have little Dell logos), and Red Bull.

Then, in the closing credits, I noticed a familiar name, Xootr, which makes some cool folding bikes and scooters.

Thing is, I don’t remember seeing any bikes or scooters in the movie. So, did anybody else spot Xootr’s contribution to the campiest film since Road House?

Update: Steve Kovalchik from Xootr says they sent a bike, cap, and a T-shirt. Did anybody catch any of them in the movie?

More importantly, did you like the movie? Inquiring minds want to know.

I told my wife as we went into the theater that our IQ would be dropping for the next two hours, so I didn’t have high expectations.

Given that, I thought it was a lot of fun. The writers, actors, and directors were definitely in on the joke, so the movie doesn’t play the horror aspect seriously. I guess that means it has more in common with “Rocky Horror” than with “Road House.”

My question is where do we send Bike Hugger tees for Snakes on a Plane Part Deux, Snakier?

Haven’t seen the movie yet.

But it is possible that those companies provided thier products to the crew, for zipping around the film locations, like Elvis Presley did at Paramount or Jim Carry on his Segway

Cycle Santa Monica!
