The Top 7... worst product cameos

5. Snickers (Biker Mice From Mars - European)

If we had organized this list by sheer number of product placements in a game, Biker Mice From Mars would win in an overwhelming and suffocating landslide of ad banners. They're pretty much everywhere - on walls, on floors, on billboards, and, naturally, on bikes and on mice - and every last one of them is for Snickers candy bars. Don't worry, though, because when you invariably get hungry from all this advertising, the in-game shop has got you covered with a wide variety of... wait for it... Snickers.



Mercifully, Snickers was only a sponsor of Biker Mice in the European edition, meaning the rest of the world can blissfully continue eating candy bars without simultaneously conjuring images of juiced sewer rats in tight leather jackets. No suck luck on the disturbing images that slogans like "Hungerectomy" and "Satisfactellent" bring to mind.

    Burger king was ALSO in fight night round three. Not that that game didn't have other poorly integrated sponsors, but I did think it was funny that the king could become a trainer. What better person to train a world class athlete than the mascot of a company that specializes in creating the exact opposite of world class athletes (aka fat lazy bastards).

    Quite strange...I actually found a carton of milk floating in the nuclear vat on SR2 with Mr T's face on the side. First I'd ever seen, strangely enough. EASTER EGG!
