Curious who?

I understand that people in marketing needs to always invent ways to sell their products. Sometimes, their ideas are a bit ridiculous. Lets take for example the movie "Curious George". I was driving home this morning on my way to work and I passed by a couple of buses with the movie poster on their sides and a couple of billboards of the crazy looking monkey on a yellow background. When I got home from work, I opened up my netflix envelope and there it is...the crazy monkey again. By then I already got tired of being inundated with this movie's advertisement. But wait....its not done yet. I was washing my dishes and next to the kitchen sink was a bundle of bananas and there was a sticker on it....what else but yet again the crazy monkey! I understand the connection but come on....did some marketing executive really concocted this not so brilliant idea of advertising their movie to banana buyers... I know they're trying to put a little bit of humor in it but I personally think its innefficient....Dont get me wrong, I love monkeys....but due to their over-marketing, I dont think I'm going to watch this movie....bleh!
