My in-laws grew up in Cambridge and remember there being a lot of farms there back then (1930s-1960s). So all the chicken ads sound about right. :)

V is not a plosive, it's a fricative. The only stop in the middle of "AbbVie" is thus the b. But the real problem is that because b and v are produced in nearly the same place, and are both voiced, they're just going to run together, so people saying this name will be saying "abby" or "avvie", not "ab vee".
