DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

I think the concept of “product placement” is one of the most easily satirized ideas I’ve ever imagined. You can take the concept to such extremes that if I ever get the opportunity, I will make a feature film with the evil gravitas of “The Big Sleep,” but every other line would contain a plug for some product.
