It’s no secret that car companies love product placements. What better place to showcase your new sports car than in the hands of a hero that’ll throw it around and use it to kill evil people? This season, Ford is supplying a large collection of vehicles to be featured in major TV shows such as Desperate Housewives, Entourage, The OC, and Las Vegas.

Other TV shows to feature Ford PAG (Premier Automotive Group) products include Studio 60, which will showcase a DB9, and Standoff, which makes use of a Range Rover.

Talking about Studio 60, "once we looked at the cast, the script, the producers and the timeslot, it seemed pretty evident that the show would be a hit," said Bob Witter, manager, Ford Global Brand Entertainment, who works with studios matching vehicles with projects. "It's the kind of win-win situation we look for. In this case, the studio gets the use of an Aston Martin and Aston Martin gets the kind of exposure that money can’t buy."

One of our favourite episodes in Entourage was when Vinnie Chase bought his three compadres an Aston Martin DB9 Volante each. And to celebrate, we've stuck a video of Ari Gold's best moments after the jump. If you're an Entourage fan like us you'll love it. If you're not, you will be. Check it out.
