Spanking the Monkey
Today the movie Hop opens in theaters, and this reference to shameless marketing of annoying animated animals reminds me of another marketing ploy I encountered almost exactly a year ago: Nintendo advertising their Super Monkey Ball game on a bunch of bananas I got at the grocery store.
One of the many reasons to hate people in marketing.
And for more banana-related pain, check out the Gallery's array of other stupid stickers: Building a Better Banana, Banana-lama-dingdong, Pocket Size Fun, Fun with Bananas, Hands Off My Banana, and When You're Smiling.
