So How About that Stride Gum??


I didn't actually have a chance to catch last night's episode of Smallville, but I thought that those of you that did would appreciate this tidbit of news:


Apparently the entire storyline was born out of nothing more than a partnership between Smallville and Stride Gum.


Check out the story on io9:

Smallville Sells Out, Invites You Along


What did you think? Just how obnoxious was the Stride product placement last night??

Well I have to say that making a whole episode about something like gum is kinda lame but it was also in a way funny the way they would encorporate a pack of gum into or say may they shouldn't have made the gum last so long. The thing that annoyed me was that they had a Stride Fractory for crying out loud which was a little weird. I do have to admit this though, there advertising worked because out of my curisosity I had to see if this gum was all that it was cracked up to be. So I guess in the end it was one not so good episode but one customer in the making.

well it was nice to have Pete come back...i thought it was kinda funny that Clark said "why dont you ever return my calls"...yes i agree it was not a very good episode, but i guess it was creative.
