Weezer lately printed the music video for “All My Favorite Songs” from its upcoming “OK Human” album, and you do not should be in advertising to note the frequent and fairly outstanding Pixel 5 product placement in the video. In truth, the Pixel 5 is on display almost one-quarter of the time in the video. For most of us, the nearly four-minute Pixel advert set to music will represent the majority (if not all) of the Pixels we see in the wild this yr.

The closing depend varies barely relying on whether or not you depend the reworked Pixel 5 doorway/portal as time spent on-screen or not — that occurs twice, and we did not — however you’ll discover {that a} Pixel 5 is seen for about 53 seconds throughout the three minute and forty-four second video. That’s a Pixel on display almost 1 / 4 of the time.

Especially selection product placement segments embrace Rivers Cuomo asking the Google Assistant to file a video, nearly each member of the band distractedly holding a Pixel 5 as they play, and our two youths chasing down an older man to steal his dropped cellphone, which then transforms right into a curtained portal to Weezer’s recording studio, as Pixels are liable to.

The final narrative even appears to be that we’re all glued to our telephones (all Pixel 5s on this case), which is shockingly a foul factor. If our music video primary character’s angst at everybody round him being glued to a display did not make that clear, possibly the “OK Human” album title did, or Weezer’s admission it bent over backwards to avoid using “dark tech-takeover”  modern technologies while recording it. Ultimately, that is all in all probability not the affiliation Google actually needs with its merchandise, however I doubt the Pixel advertising division was paying a lot consideration.

It’s a fairly good tune, although, from what seems set to be a fairly good album. And whenever you’re finished with the video, you’ll have reached your beneficial consumption of Pixel product placement. At least, till the subsequent Avengers film.
