These Are The Worst Automotive Product Placements In Film

Can we talk about how Star Wars was just a huge shill for Incom and their X-Wing model. And I really hope they got paid for their Corrrellian Eng. Corp hero-mobile, because that was just money on the table there.

Listen, it wasn’t cheap to move all that filming equipment all the way to a galaxy far, far away. Once in a while, you need to find a way to recoup the costs of production, even if that means compromising a few values. Incom must have offered a lot to George Lucas, given how prominently the T-65B X-Wing was featured in Star Wars‘s climactic sequence, but that’s the cost of doing business. Contrary to popular belief, though, the YT-1300 light freighter earned its place in the film — the Corellian Engineering Corporation never paid a dime.
