Shameless "Subway" product placement in Hawaii-Five-O on 16 Jan 2012
And, the master thief drove up in a Segway, and later used a flamethrower as a weapon.
The stolen material is RFID chips for US passports. Here, 100 chips were stolen. Adler and Bloom, eastern Europeans, are the real villains, but get caught at the airport.
The end of the episode addresses Shelbourne. A trip to Cemetery of the Pacific, to John's tombstone. Shelbourne is an alias, for the investigation. And the key is that Joe killed Wo Fat's father.
The last line of show: "Buy you a Subway."
In 1950s television, there was strong identification of product sponsor with content, as with Carnation milk on the George Burns show. One did know "who" was paying for the show. Embedded ads can blur that connection. There has been much discussion of embedded ads on children's television.
There was attention drawn to the matter in 2008, with FCC involvement.
