Hollywood is Adding Current Product Placement into Old TV Show Re-Runs
I know Hollywood has interesting ways of selling advertising. Maybe it is a character holding a Coke product or they drive by a billboard for a restaurant, or they are using a specific type of computer on screen. I understand it’s a way of making money. However, I didn’t realize they were taking it another step further and digitally altering shows from years ago.
Apparently, that happened on an re-run episode of How I Met Your Mother from 2007.

They can digitally insert anything. I have never really paid much attention when watching re-runs, but I can guarantee the next time I’m watching an re-run of Friends, I will be paying attention. I don’t know if they would do it with sitcoms from the 90’s but apparently they are doing it with shows that have ran in the last couple of years.
