Not-So-Subtle Marketing: Law and Order SVU
Sometimes television shows have to insert ads into their programs to pay the bills/fill the emptiness in their producer’s souls. This is one of the more amazing cases.
In today’s episode of Law and Order: SVU, two underprivileged youths, recently absolved of murder charges, have a surprise to share with Mom.
From Law & Order SVU’s 9th season “Fight” episode. The episode summary:
A brutal murder leads the detectives into the dangerous world of ultimate fighting. The investigation leads to two brothers who confessed that they had to rape the victim to enter a gang. The case gets harder when the leader of the gang and prime suspect is accidentally crushed in a trash compactor and one of the brothers lies to protect the other.
Thanks to Diane Luu for being obsessed with Law and Order enough to find this.
