These Apes Will Rise videos continue to be interesting. The idea of the marketing with videos like these aren’t new, but at the same time, they give people an eerie feeling. Some of you have hi range BS detectors, but overall, seeing a chimp wielding a machete and citing Idi Amin, priceless. It’s part of the marketing for Rise of the Planet of the Apes which is coming up soon. It’s already a slam dunk blockbuster film. The bets are on. If you’ve seen the trailer, you know that the main character is actually an ape named Caesar. Will Caesar utter a single word at the end? It’s an interesting debate. Meanwhile, James Franco is popular, but you’re not hearing as much about him as you’d think. Last last week they released a video of a chimp and a machine gun. It has 8 million views.
Meanwhile, do check out this iPhone, iPad, Apple app. I’m already hearing a lot of rumblings about this film and it’s fun to be part of it. I’m not saying this app will change your life, but if you’re a fan of the franchise, then why not, definitely check this out. Here’s a link to the app, and you can take a look at this at home from this link. If you can’t play the game, no worries, it’s basically a Simon type game. But it’s not that easy, supposedly Apes beat humans in these short term memory tests of seeing numbers for a second and then typing in their sequence according to a Japanese experiment.
