twister has long been one of my all-time favorite movies, and a 26-year hiatus, but franchise is coming back. Gizmodo reports that a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster (and the first film I ever bought myself in 1999) is in the works. Producer Steve Spielberg apparently “turned around” the new script, and I’m sure I will. The name of this movie could be the best. It is called twisters. How great is that.
Anyway, besides loving it as a movie I also loved the extreme Chrysler’s product placement throughout the film. It needs to think about what the next company is to put its entire lineup in twisters will be. The product placement in that movie shaped me so deeply, and I know I’m not the only one who feels that way.
Jalopnik’s own Steve DaSilva and I literally agree on two things: twister is a great fucking movie, and the red Dodge Ram 2500 hero car is one of the coolest vehicles ever to be on a screen.
The product placement in twister is downright shocking, but it looks so cool it doesn’t matter. Every scene with a car makes it look like the toughest vehicle in the world ever produced…especially if it was a Chrysler product. So sit back, relax and see exactly why twister is the largest car commercial ever made.
Oh, and let us know which brand you think should take the mantle for product placement in twisters. (The answer is still Chrysler).
