Change your city’s name for $25,000? This one did.

Altoona, Pennsylvania was offered – and accepted – $25,000 to change its name for 60 days to POM WONDERFUL PRESENTS: THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER SOLD, Pa.  It is all part of a movie promotion.  Last week I wrote a column about product placement at city halls.  I guess this rather validates the idea that advertising is now everywhere.

Read the AP story entitled Altoona, PA, changes name to movie title.
