Yesterday came news about that Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker was a bit of a money-grubbing shill… so this article is doing nothing to refute those (seemingly very true) statements.
Many avid "Sex and the City" fans know that Carrie Bradshaw uses a Mac to write all of her articles. Hell, the laptop even had its own storyline in one episode! So, many might be confused to see her new laptop is an HP.
Hewlett-Packard signed a sponsorship with "Sex and the City 2", so those will be the only brands of computers you'll be seeing in the movie.
The New York Post summed up the situation very well, in fact:
"Every aspect of Carrie's life is reduced to a vignette that can be monetized: Going to the Gym (sip on Lipton Sparkling diet green tea, an official sponsor of the new movie!), Having Cocktails with Girlfriends (try a specialized cocktail from Skyy, the movie's 'official vodka'!), Getting Married (Swarovski paid to be featured prominently in the film) and, of course, Working On Laptop, Staring Wistfully Out the Window (Hewlett-Packard partnered with the movie so its laptops would be featured, and SJP will appear in the computer company's ads, of course)."
Don't forget the fact that the all too famous white Halston dress shown in every commercial, as well as the first official movie poster went on sale the day the poster was released. Not only that, but of the 41 looks worn by Parker in the sequel, five of them are Halston. This only helps Parker as the new chief creative officer of Halston.
So, is it true? Sex and the City is just one big commercial/ advertisement/ catalog for all the shiny things in life? Say it ain't so!
