I heard this in many conversations, usually when someone is talking to a group and another person come up with a few sentences in addition and the person who’s originally talking will say “Thanks for the plug!” I heard people using it in both positive and ironic ways.
A plug can be meant as an endorsement or kind of advertisement. So for example, when someone appears on a talk show, they are usually “plugging” a movie they recently made or a book they recently wrote, even though the interview is not specifically about the book. As a further example, if someone is on a talk show and they are asked a question about the recent statistics of murder in the State of NY, they may say “NY has the highest rate of murder due to the large drug trade within the city, my book addresses this more specifically in chapter 4 where I talk about how teh trade in NY developed and how to stop it.” They just plugged their book.
In your situation, the other person probably said something that supported the original speakers point or said somethign like “that sounds like what you said on your radio show the other day.” The person in teh audience just plugged the original speakers radio program.
oooer missus, you are such an idiot! What you describe about the french is what we call a cliche! Emma explained in a PERFECT english – remember it is not her mother tongue- that she wasn’t insulting the english language but saying that she didn’t like the sound of it! Big difference. So there, get cracking on learning french this instant, go and live there for 3 years, and then come back and tell us about the so called “he Ha Hi Han”!!! Your attitude is a total disgrace!
To Plug something means promotion. Like someone will go on a talk show to “plug” a book or movie.
A plug is a reference to a product that someone is selling. It’s like free advertising. For example, if your friend’s band has a concert this weekend and you tell other people about it, you just gave them a plug.
This is usually said on radio or tv interviews. It means that the guest of the show is promoting a new book, website, tv show, ect on the air this is called a plug. An example of this would be:
Radio Show: “Today we have the band Ever Clear with us. So Ever Clear, if people wanted to check out your show where will you be playing?”
Band: “We are playing at the chatter box tonight at 10:00 pm. You could also check out are website to see our tour schedule.
Radio Show: “Thanks for being on the show today.”
Band: “Happy to be here and thanks for the plug.”
isnt it if some one has a cd coming out or something and it gets advertised or ‘plugged’ on someone elses show
Plug is often slang, used to refer to promotion …
“Thanks for the promotion!” … You’ll hear it on radio/tv interviews, where the presenter mentions a book or upcoming movie that person’s in … The person receiving the promotion may say, something like “cheers for the plug!” … or, as you say, “thanks for the plug”.
he probably gave him an outlet plug with the right voltage.
Thanks For The Plug
