"iPod has really changed the world for people in terms of them having their own playlists," Burger King marketing chief Russ Klein told Reuters. "We have to earn our way into it." Much like product placements in film and television scripts, music is quickly becoming another stage for advertisers. Traditional commercials may never make it to the iPod, according to the report.
