The Worst Car Product Placements in Movies

3. Ford Mustang in Knight Rider

In the original Knight Rider, young David Hasselhoff drives the autonomous Pontiac Trans Am, but in the 2008 reboot, the producers decided to use the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR. The Hollywood Reporter’s description of the pilot episode was perfect. They said: “Subtle product placement is one thing, but in ‘Knight Rider’ it becomes so heavy-handed that it actually alters entire scenes … Meanwhile, the Mustang logo gets displayed so often, the movie almost qualifies as a western.”
