Squeaky Clean Sopranos?

Would sponsors line up to buy commercials in The Sopranos? Even if the shows were edited of much of their blood, gore, and potty-mouthing?

Initially, you'd think not- what company wants their product associated with a show that regularly features rapes, beheadings and assasinations, even if it's a sanitized, watered down version. But here at TVGeekSpeak, we feel that advertisers are missing a huge opportunity. Why not try pitching these products:

- Tide or Shout, to help scrub out those "hard to remove stains"

- Boar's Head, to plug "pro-shute" and "gabba-gool"

- Cadillac Escalade, "The SUV killing machine the pros use!"

- Any funeral parlor chain, who could then offer customers volume discounts

Media planners, you can thank me later.

1 other geekspeak:

  • A great sequel to the Sopranos: "Sicilian Sisters: Women in La Famiglia" by Marianna a fiction novel about Sicilian women in control of the Dons since the 15th century. Pirates landed on Sicilian islands and continued their pillaging on land. A great entertainment book. Deborah
