Even though Google didn't pay to be in the movie, the company was allowed control over how their products were to be depicted. For example, the film makers wanted a scene where the self-driving car crashes, but Google wanted the scene removed because the product hasn't launched yet. See more »

What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
Because I gotta throw you a curve-ball every now and again, or you get bored, and the mix doesn't have its intended effect.
No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Not gonna happen.
Don't ya think?

To be perfectly honest, I really like Google, it's not that I am against the brand or anything, and I even think their marketing campaigns are very intricate and subtle...and that's exactly why I hated this movie, it's not subtle at all.
The Internship, to sum things up, it's one of the longest infomercials I've seen in my entire life, and badly enough is also really boring at that; the actors do their best to make it look like an actual movie, they even succeed in the first 15 minutes of the film, but it's when Google takes the whole screen that everything goes down the drain...they even go in the "Google AdWords just saved an entire franchise" direction...
I think this is just a waste of time, if I wanted information about Google Drive, Gmail or Google Wallet I could have googled it right? I mean, there are youtube videos about those products, and there's a reason why people don't just waste their spare time watching those videos...well, now Google charged us to do it...
Oh and by the way, as a comedy it sucks big time, I did not laugh even once...
