In Cobra Kai, there’s some effective product placement with Coors Banquet beer as Johnny Lawrence’ (Billy Zapka) favorite alcoholic beverage.
“I haven’t really drank a Coors Banquet on the set, because all of that’s water and iced tea, so I can’t totally vouch for it yet,” he said. “But the bottles look cool, man.” “I should be getting paid by Coors for all of this,” Zabka said.Ralph Macchio and Billy Zabka Spill on Their ‘Cobra Kai’ Drinks of Choice
The TV show Cobra Kai often has 80s rock music playing, and they missed a great opportunity to license “I drink alone” by George Thorogood and The Destroyers when Johnny Lawrence is hitting the skids.
Other music featured in the series includes Boston (“Don’t Look Back”), Ratt (“Round and Round”), REO Speedwagon (“Take It On The Run”) and more.
Cobra Kai, seasons 1 & 2 is available for streaming on Netflix. Season 3 will be released at some point in 2021.
