I haven't seen ABC's new show Modern Family, but the Business Insider has and noticed that the characters all drive Toyotas in the midst of the car-company's giant recall. The reason isn't that the characters are product loyalists. It's that the producers made a deal to promote Toyota products on the show. An interesting story to be filed in the gigantic folder labeled "Unanticipated Consequences."
