Tesla makes series premier.

Tesla makes series premier.

Marty, the lead character on Showtimes House of Lies, has traded in his Mercedes SLS AMG for a beautiful Model S. Curious to see what other shows this season will show the car.

I am 100% sure you will see a LOT of MS's on popular TV shows, films, etc where a car company didn't pay serious $$$$$$$$ to get their ICE in it.

Otherwise, Hollywood LOVES the MS, and from what know, just about EVERYONE who is ANYONE in the entertainment industry, either has one, or has one on order!

Sorry Prius.

It will be a lot like all of the Apple laptop placement everywhere. They all want their characters to be seen as cool, technical innovators.

Saw a Roadster on Leverage. Sweet.

On March 29th, 2010 I saw a Roadster on the TV show Chuck...I made some Googling to find out what it was, discovered that it was a Tesla, went to their website, and two months later, after much research and drooling, I put a deposit down on the Model S that now sits in my driveway, delivered just over two and a half years after I first learned of Tesla by way of a TV show. I for one do not underestimate the value of product placement ;)

From Season 2, Episode 1 of the Showtime show House of Lies:

All you gize is just suggestible. Suckahs! ;)

They already featured the roadster on Dallas last year.

You can see Roadster in first Ironman movie, that's when it was still prototype (it shows in background in Ironman garage, IIRC the rightmost car)

Obviously he meant, "Model S makes series premier."

We're not counting that cheesy movie trailer as "official" yet are we?

The roadster was featured in an episode of the USA series Royal Pains as well. Given as a gift to the main characters by one of the patients they helped (nice gift!). Sadly they didn't keep it, just one shot of it kicking up gravel as it sped down the driveway.

Obviously, we need a series with Clark Kent driving a Model S!

How about Storm from X-men? Instant recharge and all that?

I say go for broke...James Bond, or bust!

JAGFOX | 2013年1月18日

I like the James Bond idea ... but it also should be something to look for in the next Ironman movie given that Elon Musk already made a cameo in a previous Ironman movie and given his reputation as the real life Tony Stark.

TheAustin | 2013年1月18日

JAGFOX, that's sounds more plausible. And, we all know Elon had a cameo (with lines) in Iron Man 2, yes?
