Pizza Girl

The long-standing ban on product placement on British TV has been lifted, allowing advertisers to pay for their goods to be introduced into shows. So you can expect Coca-Cola bottles to appear on chat-show hosts' desks, but it is even worse than that. This graphic of C.C. from Japanese TV animated series Code Geass shows her tucking into a pizza from the show's sponsor, the Japanese branch of Pizza Hut. Her nickname is "Pizza Girl". The Telegraph has posted a slide show of product placements inflicted on movies and TV (CLICK). Thankfully the ban won't be lifted from children's TV programmes, news, current affairs, consumer affairs and the BBC (title link). Phew! Watch out for the big P.
