John Deere
Product placement: Not paid

Early in season three, Ken Cosgrove celebrates landing the John Deere account by driving a John Deere tractor into the office, with disastrous consequences. We will leave it at that for those of you still catching up on the show.

While some pegged the sequence as an unusual product placement, John Deere clarified that it would not endorse segments showing unsafe use of its products, and told Fortune it does not generally participate in product placement in any shows.

Just as Cosgrove surely did not help Sterling Cooper's relationship with the fictional John Deere in his office disaster, AMC did not make any friends at John Deere with its use of the brand.
