Pontiac gets prime product placement in 50 Cent video

General Motors is continuing its alternative marketing push with a cameo of the Pontiac G8 GT and G6 GXP in a new music video by rapper 50 Cent. The company also has extensive product placements in the upcoming "Transformers" movie, and the Chevrolet Camaro Concept recently appeared in a rap video by T.I.

Rappers usually like to showcase their exotic or ultra-luxury cars in music videos, but it's clear advertising dollars can convince them to leave the Ferraris at home. .

The yet-to-be-released Pontiac G8 and the new G6 GXP both appear for several seconds in 50 Cent's new video for "Amusement Park," a single from his upcoming "Curtis," album, due June 26th.
