    B&O at the movies / TV

    Hi,

    thought I'd start this off here but I'll be moving it to the Lifestyle section eventually.

    Ok just saw the latest Ballentines ad (focusing on purity and quality) and they use as the music source a Beogram with an MMC6000.

    B&O in movies

    I can't find back the old "movies" thread (am I blind??), so I just open a new one:

    Yesterday I was watching "Thank you for smoking" and I saw a BS9000 in Nick Naylors appartment, along with some ugly non B&O AV equipment.

    For those who don't know the old thread: Did you spot some B&O in a movie, a TV-show or an ad?  Tell us!

    I was looking for the same thread the other day after watch the Bourne Identity, where there is a Beocom 6000 in room where he opens the safety deposit box.

    I didn't know that Deal Or No Deal was a German show. Neat. It's very popular here in the US.

    A famous B&O appearance is in The Devil Wears Prada. Meryl Streep uses it.

    I am not surwe where it started, but it Deal or No Deal seems to be like a 'franchise' that pops up in all sorts of different countries.

    Re: B&O in movies

    Well it seems this post doesn't have as much content as it did on the old BeoWorld. My spottings of "Where's B&O?" have been:

    1. iRobot - Will Smith uses A8s, but he uses them as a handsfree for his phone from memory.

    2. The latest advert for the Pro Evolution 08 soccer game has BeoLab 5s and BeoSound 4 on set while Ronaldo and Owen are being interviewed.

    3. Two Weeks Notice: Hugh Grant has a BeoSound 9000.

    4. And my favourite find is a Century in cartoon form on a Simpsons episode. From memory it is at the comic store. I shall try and find out the episode and get a screen shot for you guys. It looks identical - even in the original green colour!

    Re: B&O in movies

    Lately, I saw a documentary about the german singer/ songwriter Udo Lindenberg who lives in Hamburg/ Germany in the Hotel Atlantic for about the last 20 years. In his room, I have seen a BS9000, but I only saw the stand, as a jacket was hanging on the BS9000!

    Re: B&O in movies

    In Entourage, Ari (the agent) has a BeoSound 9000 in his office. But every time I see it there are no CDs loaded -- the prop manager probably didn't know how to do it. (Can't tell for certain, but I don't think it's plugged in.)

    Anyone see the speakers Ari has?

    Pirates of Silicon Valley.  It's movie about Jobs, Gates, and the start of both companies.  Jobs has a beocenter 2200 in his meeting room.

    I am.  :o)   I think you are the first person to correctly detect it.  I enjoy my 2001 TT Roadster Quattro.  The weather here is perfect for top-down driving, and I rarely get an opportunity to use the heated seats.

    Re: B&O in movies

    I just saw American Psycho and there is a BeoCenter 9000/9300/... and a pair of CX100 speakers in Patrick Batemans office.

    Also there is the ever popular BeoLab 8000 and BeoSound 9000 combination in the apartment of Charles Prentiss in the brilliant british TV show Absolute Power.

    Re: B&O in movies


    "About a Boy" - BS9000 and BL8000.
    "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" - BS9000 and BL8000.
     
     
    And my oddest sighting to date:
     
    Married with Children (1988), "Master the Possibilities" - at the very end of the episode, Al is working as Room Service in a hotel, and as they pan the room, there is a BeoSystem 5000 with the MCP on the book shelf.
