Craig will additionally star in a commercial for the brew to run globally, created by Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam with "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes serving as a consultant. Craig will also appear as Bond on special packaging for the beer

why did they go from the recipe given in the book to the now iconic, "Vodka Martini , shaken not stirred"? Was it a desire to avoid becoming an advertisement, or was it simply simpler for Connery to say?
These days, they'd probably have Bond order from the dollar menu at McDonald's if they thought they could get paid for product placement.
