    Does anyone know why many advertisements for Pfizer pharmaceuticals that run on American TV are made in the Czech Republic? Great effort is made to disguise

      Does anyone know why many advertisements for Pfizer pharmaceuticals that run on American TV are made in the Czech Republic?

      Great effort is made to disguise the location where they're filmed, and they're often set in scenes intended to look "American" (such as an American-style high school class reunion, etc.), but the people's mouth positions and body movements give them away as Czech, as do a few objects in the background.

      These commercials join the Mentos ones from the 1990s, and one for Allianz insurance, that appear surrealistic somehow to American audiences and they can't put their finger on why.

        Those are probably not foils, but films. (Foil is metallic. Plastic is usually film.)

        They are called advertising decals.
