Such Strange Yet Marvelous Product Placement…

You know the pain you feel from watching an incredibly expensive Lamborghini get completely totaled? Yeah, well, according to Ad Age, Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” did just that. On purpose.

“The title character in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” drives (and crashes) a $237,250 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4. In another twist of product placement, he uses a smartphone from China: It’s from Huawei’s Honor subbrand, whose flagship phone sells for $399.99.” – Ad Age

Product placement is clearly at work here, but Lamborghini might not be the ones seeing the most success. The movie is geared towards 18-34 year olds, most of whom lack the funds to buy such an expensive vehicle. However, the Chinese cell phone Honor 8 is boldly challenging Samsun and Apple in the global market.
