While too much product placement can draw attention away from the story, just a little can be very funny. As I learned from Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, specific is a lot more funny than general. Calvin's dad wasn't just a nameless corporate drone, he was a patent attorney, even more boring to Calvin.
Two of my favorite summer cable shows have their own "Scooby Snacks". Psych has a constant obsession with pineapples. While Burn Notice loves yogurt...as evidenced in the following clip. Spies love yogurt.
If you can think of other Scooby Snacks, generic or product placement, please add them to the comments.
