Throughout V I noticed that both Michael, Trevor and Dave Norton mention the army driving "Army Jeeps"
 
I found it odd considering that they should have said Army Canis' to keep it canon

It seems that while the brand is of course different, the generic WW2-originating term "jeep" still exists in the GTA world. The police radio in SA would also refer to some vehicles as "jeeps" as in the generic category (like "sedan" or "SUV").

That's funny, I never noticed that before. It makes sense though, considering the history of the jeep and how the word "jeep" itself was a nickname given to it by soldiers. Is it trademarked in that sense or is it open season?

Think about Mafia II, in the first missions.  they didnt used licensed cars in that game...:

Vito: "Uhh.. you think i could drive?"

Joe: "drive?  you dont even know how to drive. the roads are all iced over and this is a luxury class automobile, this aint no tank you know."

Vito: "I know how to drive joe, i drove a jeep all the time in the army"

Joe: "what the hell is a jeep?"

Seems about right, jeep is just a nickname. Hell, the name was originally a popeye character & a locomotive's nickname just to give how diverse it is.

In this song it mentions Kleenex, and Scooby Doo;

 

 

It may have been brought up prior, but it is interesting nonetheless. :)

I don't think songs matter at this point as tons of them mention real life things.

This may be why the song was cut from the final release of the game

That's odd, I always interpreted that line as "scoopy doop" or something along those lines. Isn't kleenex nowadays an umbrella term for just tissues in general sorta?

I know this is not a product (and I don't know if this was posted earlier) but I'm listening to LCHC right now and Jimmy Gestapo mentioned California.

On the rims in GTA III, there is a Honda symbol. Which came from an Accord.

An advertisement for Juki's Union Special machines can be seen in Chinatown:

There's also a blurry but somewhat readable logo for Scotchguard on the flooring supplies sign not far from the Juki building:

If I may remember this has since been edited out on the mobile version, but I'm not sure if the same goes with the Xbox port.
