    Joke or not, it definitely did not fit in the situation. Well, perhaps that is part of the reason.

    Still imagine the train scene of Uncharted 2 with a sudden tv ad popping at the screen.

      True but its not a case of the ad just poping up is it. You have to click on the tv for it to appear and as i said most would have probably missed it.

        I haven't ever noticed these things. I'm also unfamiliar with the brand names, so for all I know, they're fake.

        If not for this topic, I probably would never notice.

          That annoyed you? I guess I just didn't really notice the first time.

          Although I'll admit, in the Signal when Alan gets his cell-phone by popping one of the light-wordy thingies, and the camera stops just in time in midair to catch the Verizon symbol on it, I had to roll my eyes.
          Do a looney-gooney dance, cross the kitchen floor, put something silly in the world that ain't been there before.

              Let's list a few:
              The Ford car at the trailer park. The Pennzoil and Castrol brands or w/e in the garage at the Junkyard in Episode 6 I believe. Verizon obviously. Energizer batteries everywhere. Anything else? Other vehicle types that were a blatant reference? (meaning it was stamped with a logo). OH the Sync brand name on the dashboard of one of the cars, I think it was in a cutscene. What about the computer in Alan's apartment? Windows? Or his new unpacked TV. What brand was on that box?
              It's not a lake. It's an ocean.

                  Yeah you're right, I checked after. I couldn't tell what it was named though but it wasn't a real brand.

                    Okay I saw the TV box now, yeah it's SeeSee. And the car they arrive in on the ferry is a Lincoln MKT. Says right on it, logo and all.
