LG Quantum (WP7) appears in CW's The Vampire Diaries

Evidently, the other night on 'The Vampire Diaries' showing on the CW network, the LG Quantum with full Bing glory made a cameo appearance when Jeremy was looking for some bad guys. While it is not uncommon to see product placement in shows these days, we're pretty sure this is the first for Windows Phone 7.

Not a bad nod to the great functionality of Windows Phone 7 and Bing either, as it targets the young adult...vampire...market. Or something.

Thanks, Ben Luke, for the tip!

And thank me for the screen caps as I had to sit through that show to get 'em. The things I do for you folks...yeesh.

  • I dunno, half way-ish?
  • Right after they discovered elena was missing and stefan and damon set off to find her.
  • I thought I saw that last night. I thought at first it was me halucinating because I've been following WP7 news so much lately. Now I know I'm not crazy!
  • Rachel Zoe's life was the first WP7 product placement back in September. http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/15/windows-phone-7-slides-into-tv-spot-r...
  • Ah, that's right. Well, this is the first product placement in a fiction series then. Touche!
  • And typically in TV/movies, there are some "snags". When he's looking at the homescreen the theme on the phone is "dark" (dark background) and when looking at the map, the theme on the phone is suddenly "light" (white top and bottom bars). ...does this make me a WP7-geek since spotted this immediately... :O
  • Yes, yes it does. :-P Welcome, friend.
  • There was a Quantum in Chase about 3 weeks ago. It was towards the 3/4 mark of the show in a hospital scene.
