    Modern brands showing up in near future sci-fi is a bit of a different feel than them showing up in a far away galaxy a long time ago. This is especially true when we haven't even seen Star Wars have anything that could be described as a conventional corporation (it tends to feel more like a precolonial merchant prince situation, crossed with an exceeding colonial factory planet situation). Alien meanwhile is not only set in the near future but has a plot incited by corporate greed of a conventional corporation.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    As further proof of this concept, I offer up Enzyte and any other "natural male enhancement" commercials, which never defined what that meant or made any explicit claims, and instead vaguely implied something and let viewers assume what they wanted to.

    If those commercials are the same ones I remember, I can only assume Enzyte whitens your teeth.

    Some commercials are pretty cool and fun, and some actually inform me of things I'm interested in that I didn't know about. I'm heckin lazy when it comes to staying on top of "new releases" in games/movies/tv shows.
    Knowledge brings the sting of disillusionment, but the pain teaches perspective.
    There is a future in which I see only mist and a single shadow.
    "You know it's all fake right?"
    "...yeah, but it makes me feel better."

    I recall an early CGI Coke ad that had a guy on a lawn chair in the sun "melt" and then shamble over with loose skin sagging and flapping to drink the Coke that restored him. I don't think it lasted a week on TV.
