Last night, Paula Abdul whored herself out to Pepsi carried a purse in the shape of a Pepsi can on the red carpet for an “X Factor” press event. I don’t think there’s really much to say about it. The bag is hideous, obviously, and it’s also clearly an incident of the worst kind of product placement — you know, the kind that doesn’t even pretend to be, like, part of the set, or somebody’s actual beverage, or really anything other than what it is.

But perhaps you disagree. So — how do you feel?
