I saw this video the other day that is about all the product placements in hip hop songs



and I thought that hip hop can't be the only lyrics that have specific products mentioned in them and then I remembered the "Vegemite" line.

I'm trying to think of others.....

Can you think of any?

@boomerang,
Suicidal Tendencies ~ Institutionalized.

"No mom I'm not on drugs I'm okay, I was just thinking you know, why don't you get me a Pepsi.
She goes:
NO you're on drugs!
I go:
Mom I'm okay, I'm just thinking.
She goes:
No you're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't be acting that way!
I go:
Mom just get me a Pepsi, please
All I want is a Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me.
Just a Pepsi..."

Is that a real poncho or is that a Sear's poncho? (Zappa)

Okay.... maybe not a product but definitely a name brand.

Bryan Adams - "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You"

Some of the lines:
I don't look good in no Armani Suits
No Gucci shoes - or designer boots
I've tried the latest lines from A to Z
But there's just one thing that looks good on me

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

I'm not satisfied with Versace style
Put those patent leather pants - in the circular file
Sometimes I think - I might be lookin' good
But there's only one thing that fits me like it should

Frank Zappa wrote a song in the mid-60s entitled "Call on any Vegetable." On his live album, Just Another Band from L.A. (1972), a "live" album from a 1971 performance, he added these lyrics: (In call and respoinse with another band member)

You know a lot of people don't bother about their friends in the vegetable kingdom. They, they think: What can I say? Some times they think: Where can I go?
Where can I go to get my poodle clipped in Burbank?
At Ralph's vegetarian poodle clippin', where you can come this...
Where can I go to get organic vasoline for my . . .
At Bob and Ray's Swahili restaurant, where you can come this close.....
Where can I go to get my jeans embroided at Fullurton?.....
At jeans, at Jeans North where nothing fits
Where can I go to get my zipper repaired in Hollywood?
Who gives the **** anyway
Where can I go to get my speakers fixed?
Where can I go to get my exit lights?,
At Jack LaLane Hamburgers on 312 Woodier(?) Boulavard.
Where can I go to get my stomach pumped?
Where can I go to colapse
Hey, De-due.

Cole Porter's "You're the Top" contains references to: Henri Bendel Store ("Bendel bonnet"); Mickey Mouse; Cellophane (DuPont); Arrow Shirts; Ovaltine; and the Roxy Theatre ("a Roxy usher"). Other versions of the song also reference Pepsodent toothpaste, Saks Fifth Avenue, and the Ritz Hotel.

Shoals of dead fish float on the lakes,
but Uncle Sam's on Mars
And science is making the same mistakes,
but Uncle Sam's on Mars
No one down here knows how to work the brakes,
but Uncle Sam's on Mars

Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on
Mars, he's on Mars

Layers of smoke in the atmosphere have made the earth
too hot to bear
The Earth might be a desert soon, America has left
the Moon

Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on
Mars, he's on Mars

He's digging for dreams in the red sand
He's got his bucket and spade in his left hand
He's digging for dreams
He's looking for life

What's he doing out there?
He's looking for life
Looking for life
There may be life out there

(Nixon to Armstrong - July 21st 1969:)
I'm talking to you by telephone from the Oval Room in the White House.
And this certainly must be the most exciting telephone
call ever made here on Earth. I just can't tell
you how proud we all are. For every American this
has to be the proudest day of their lives. And
for people all over the world, I'm sure they too
join with us in recognising what a tremendous
achievement this is. For one priceless moment
in the whole history of Man......

MacDonalds Hamburger Construction works
And he's looking for life
Looking for life to wind up
He's looking for life to stamp out
He's looking for life to grind out
He's looking for life, so mind out

I hope you brought your credit card with you, and I hope you know how to
drive on these long, lonely freeways and intersections we've got up
here. We've got two cars in the garage, two cars in the garage, and
drum-majorettes in white ankle socks and baton twirling on Sundays.
We've got stripes and the stars and Uncle Sam's on, Uncle Sam's on, Uncle
Sam's on, Mars....

@boomerang,
I think product placement implies intent. When Prince sings about the "Little Red Corvette", did GM pay for the mention? If not, I wouldn't call it product placement. (Also, I'm not sure GM would be good with the reference.)

Possibly qualifies -

I saw a werewolf drinkin' a pina colada at Trader Vic's. His hair was perfect.
