    Unsubtle Product Placement??

    Last night's final episode of the Australian show "Neighbours" had a return of Guy Pierce wearing a familiar logo ( to us anyway) on his motorcycle jacket.
    Is this a well paid product placement or just Guy trying to be cool? You decide!

    I was thinking senility but if it was in The Age I guess that's okay.

    BTW I let Google do the walking. He seems to be confused about brands.  :002:

    I don't think he's confused, I think he has a good agent that understands the rewards of product placement.

    He has been up our way the last few days filming a Disney+ series based around The Family. Might have to borrow our sons subscription when it is released to see all the local landmarks on the TV.  :001:

    Are you going to lend him your Triumph to go with his jacket?

    Im picking that the series is based in the mid 1970s to 1990 type period so I would need a Meriden union built Bonneville to be period correct.

    You might think that, but on closer examination you will see that his logo wasn't made until 1990.
    So, do we have a TV time warp here?

    From https://motorcycle-logos.com/triumph-logo/
    ----
    "
    The logo changed again in 1934..... the line emanating from the letter R smoothly merged into the middle line of the last letter H, on the right side. This logo was known right up to 1990.
    In 1990....  only the font of the inscription was changed. Now it was an acute-angled font, the line emanating from the letter R also smoothly merged into the middle line of H, but already on the left side, without touching the letters between them.
