Did Portal 2 sell out metaphorically already?

The story’s are spreading around the net, that an interactive trailer for Super-8 (jj abrams) is included in the game play for Portal 2. Has Portal 2 sold out its ethics and become a platform for advertising?

For a game that has been in development for several years (I think 7?) It’s kinda strange to me that Portal 2 would include an interactive trailer for the new Super-8 movie. What seems more strange, is that games can be used as a platform for development of content of this type. Are we to expect video-game tie in’s all over the board? DLC packs for Game of Thrones in World of Warcraft? Perhaps James Bond levels for Medal of Honor? Interesting yes, a good idea? I don’t know yet.
