Several corporations, including Wal-Mart, American Airlines, and Mastercard, released a major motion picture in 2008!

Wal-Mart is known for their low prices, but in 2008, they decided they wanted to be known for movie-making. 'Proud American' features five stories that follow the founding of Wal-Mart and Coca Cola. They intended to capture the American spirit by following these stories. Mastercard and American Airlines also offered sponsorship, and their product placement can be seen throughout the film.

Despite all of the big brand names, the movie didn't do well. It earned only $96,076 throughout 750 theaters. It's considered the lowest-grossing wide release in movie history. It currently has just a 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
