WTF? Product placement in a graphic novel

So, now that I've finished reading enough of the Campbell nominees record a ranking in my Hugo voting tracking spreadsheet, I've moved onto graphic novels. Partly because I have three in dead-tree form and want to take a break from reading on the computer.

I was really enjoying the Dresden Files graphic novel - until I ran into some blatant product placement that so far doesn't make much sense, and is distracting me from the story. WTF? The scene came totally by surprise - even if you eliminate the brand-name reference, which is what makes the product placement so weird.
