You've probably noticed product placement in movies and TV shows (the glamorous main character is drinking a certain brand of soft drink... and being paid lots of money to show off that soft drink). Or how about celebrity spokespeople? Sometimes a star endorses a product that he or she doesn't even have a connection to (a tennis player endorsing a certain brand of tennis balls is one thing, but a football star plugging a particular brand of bread seems like a big jump). In Beauty Queens, we see quite a bit of product-pushing from The Corporation. An example is on page 316, the Commercial Break featuring Maxi-Pad Pets. The author really makes these placements/endorsements over-the-top, which helps us to see their ridiculous nature. What do you think about the products and the treatment of product placement/endorsement in the book? Is there a particular example that stands out to you? How do you think these pieces added to (or detracted from) the book overall?
