Virtual product placement ads are coming to Amazon Prime Video and Peacock

TLDR
  • Announced at this month’s NewFronts, Amazon and Peacock demonstrated new ad formats that use similar virtual product placement (VPP) tools, a post-production technique for inserting a brand into a TV show or movie scene.
Brief

Amazon presented its new VPP tool, currently operating in beta, that lets advertisers place their branded products directly into streaming content after they have already been filmed and produced. Brands that use product placement in movies and TV shows capture target markets and promote products in a subtle way. In an illustrative video, Amazon demonstrated how its new VPP program enables brands to strategically insert products post-production into content streaming from Amazon Prime Video and the newly rebranded Amazon Freevee.

TLDR
  • TikTok introduced Branded Mission, an ad solution that enables brands and agencies to crowdsource authentic content from creators and turn highly engaging videos into ads.
