Who’s still carrying their Pixel 3?
Placement of smartphone product is a difficult business. On the one hand, shows and movies often need every dollar they can get to finance their projects. On the other hand, placement done wrong can be too in your face, or just so poorly conceived as to be distracting. Hawkeye, The new Marvel series on Disney +, may be laying things on a bit thick, because it seems to happen in a world where not only everyone uses a Google phone, but they have not upgraded since 2019.
As we have learned in Avengers: End game, Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) is a pixel user – a pixel 3 to be precise. Although two years have passed since the effects of Thanos’ snap were reversed, family man Clint Barton and his wife are still using the same model, although his son Cooper is using an Oh So Orange Pixel 4 (spotted by 9 to 5 Google).
Meanwhile, Hawkeye’s teaching and replacement – Kate Bishop – is using a Dot Black Pixel 4 with a custom OS. Her mother Eleanor can be spotted with a Pixel 4 in a first party Sorta Smokey fabric case.
Although we have not seen any official confirmation, it is probably safe to assume that this is another sponsored partnership similar to the one for Avengers: End game. For Marvel and Hawkeye fans, the first two episodes are streaming on Disney + now.
