The movie Flight, which stars Denzel Washington as an alcoholic pilot, opens this weekend. Companies normally love to get product placement in movies, especially ones with this much Oscar buzz.
But there's one company that's unhappy their product is featured so heavily in the movie − Budweiser.
Anheuser-Busch is upset that Washington’s character downs Budweiser after Budweiser, even when behind the wheel. The beer company has asked that their logo be blurred in digital copies and future versions of the movie.
Rob McCarthy, vice president of Budweiser, wrote in a statement to the AP: "We would never condone the misuse of our products, and have a long history of promoting responsible drinking and preventing drunk driving. We have asked the studio to obscure the Budweiser trademark in current digital copies of the movie and on all subsequent adaptations of the film, including DVD, On Demand, streaming and additional prints not yet distributed to theaters."
