  • "Can we go to California Adventure?" - Disney product placement in ABC TV (merged)

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I found it too funny:

    Tonight on "Brothers & Sisters," on ABC, a husband was moving out of the house after cheating on his wife. The husband told the kids they could do all sorts of fun things when they come to visit him on the weekends.

    "Can we go to California Adventure?" - asked the youngest boy.

    I swear to you all, this is what the little boy said. Gotta love product placement!

    Nothing like a good chuckle before bed (I'm on the east coast ).)

        Even though 2 and a half men is on CBS, I have heard them mention Disneyland at least a couple times this year :o)

        LOL, yeah, what was dad's reply??

          Oh, they get to go, of course...


          I don't live in So Cal, but I'm thinking it's not too often that kids beg their kids to go to DCA...Disneyland, yes, DCA...not so much.

            On How I Met Your Mother, before Ted met Victoria he had a day dream where he had a picture of 2 kids in front of DCA's sign, the kid's faces were cut out, but everyone around me went "HEY!"

            They will go to any level.

              Unless a DCA reference is followed by some kind of punchline, it was mandated by management that it be there!

              The best DCA lines were from the Simpsons of course. DCA got hit twice. And for good cause!

              On The Great Louse Detective Marge Simpson states that she doesn't think prison is "a great place to bring the children", to which Lisa Simpson replies "It still beats Disney's California Adventure."

              Also, in My Mother the Carjacker, Homer Simpson pretends to hide his fugitive mother "someplace where there's nobody for miles, Disney's California Adventure."

                It'd be hilarious if the dad's response was "No, I said something fun!"

                  I heard a crack at the huge disappointment of DCA once on the Simpsons. It was hilarious. Does anyone remember exactly how it went?

                    "Can we go to California Adventure?" - Disney product placement in ABC television.

                    So I'm watching Brothers and Sisters on ABC right now and in a scene where one of the married couples in the family are talking to their kids about their temporary marriage separation, the father, Joe, said, "I'll still see you guys all the time and we'll hang out every weekend" and his young son replied with "Can we go to California Adventure?!" and the Joe said in a playful way, "Yeah, dude, of course!" and followed it up with a high five.

                    I thought this was interesting. Instead of asking to go to Disneyland, the kid specifically asked for California Adventure. Is this a new Disney theme park product placement in ABC television? Is this a way to intice viewers to visit DCA? And is this really an appropriate way to make DCA more appealing to the public - via a scene in a prime time drama dealing with a marriage separation?

                    What do you think?

                          From Wikipedia
                          References on DCA's lack of attendance have been made on 2 different episodes of the TV show The Simpsons:
                          On The Great Louse Detective Marge Simpson states that she doesn't think prison is "a great place to bring the children", to which Lisa Simpson replies "It still beats Disney's California Adventure."
                          Also, in My Mother the Carjacker, Homer Simpson pretends to hide his fugitive mother "someplace where there's nobody for miles, Disney's California Adventure."

                            I don't quite get why that thread was moved to the Lounge. It was about an aspect of the Disneyland Resort.
