It would be cool if the commercial break was made up of one big commercial that included all the products you normally see in a commercial break. Like a family riding in a Ford Fusion go out to State Farm to get life insurance. One of the kids is playing with a Barbie doll in the car. She starts to choke on one of Barbie's shoes and they have to go to St. Mary's hospital. Then, once the child is revived, they end the day with dinner at Applebee's. Amirite?

I like this idea, but it must be thought out very carefully. I don't think that a kid choking on one of Barbie's shoes is going to help sell more Barbies.

Well, yeah, but you know those 1 minute commercials that annoy you to no end? Well instead it will be like a mini show that you have to see over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over. To prevent it from getting tiresome, advertisers would have to get together every week or so, and create another long commercial together.

Reruns with shoddy plots and badly designed characters designed solely for the purpose of making money. Maybe like watching reruns of Friends. Plus, there wouldn't be that many, so it would be like watching a rerun of a show you hated a dozen times.

It would suck though if you were more interested in the commercial then the actual show. The show now turns into a commercial, and you proceed to curse at the TV because My Big Fat Greek Wedding takes up most of the 2 hour long time slot.

I think they did it in the first Transformers with Chevrolet. I remember it being on TV with no commercial breaks... not quite certain it was because of the product placement, but I think it was. It's a valid point that other products that need some explanation of why they're better or how they work would need commercials, but personally I think that just seeing characters the viewers love using a product would be enough reason for the average American to buy something. Admittedly, it would be pretty difficult to make a product fit into any show and then it would be in that show forever. It would probably make pricing the advertising space close to impossible... This turned out to be a lot more complicated than I thought, and is probably why they don't do it.

Or it could be like a disaster movie of all the horrible things that happen when you buy the generic products. Somebody brings store brand pepsi to a party, the party goers beat him up and trash his car and he goes broke because his insurance didn't cover it. He tries to find a job but he looks in the paper instead snagajob.com and ends up homeless, living in a box, but it starts to rain and his box dissolves because it wasn't from UPS.
But then at the next commercial break, his luck turns around! He finds a scratch off ticket from the new york lottery and wins big! He goes on a spending spree, buys a mercedes benz, brand name clothes, and a boatload of genuine Pepsi. He goes back to the people who beat him up and buys them all the newest iphone so they all feel guilty about beating him, then he takes a vacation to Hawaii by flying Jet blue.

I wouldn't mind watching that commercial.
