Movies are a great form of media and they help spreading propaganda. They are very successful in attempting and influencing the people. For instance, if a car model is shown in a movie, one may desire to have the same car in his parking. Or homes, food, clothing and accessories are a few others which have greater impacts. In fact, the movie makers are trying to market the products using movies, recently.

Like, if the new collection of a furniture brand is shown in a movie and if it is likable by all they might go search it in the market and buy products shown in a movie. To use few seconds of movie footage in order to market their movie is a great trick for the movie and also for the product advertisers; like some lifestyle brands are ‘partners’ with a movie. It makes us curious about the new product and makes us want to go and check the product in the market! So, movies have been a successful attempt to advertise and communicate the ideas of products for a wide audience.
