Rise of the Viral Videos for Planet of the Apes


What happens when you give an AK-47 to an ape? Or let him veg out in front of a first-person shooter game? Well, in the case of the FPS, glad to know that the ape will zone out just like us little ol humans. The ape + AK-47 = predictable chaos is a bit silly, but you at least gotta appreciate the time and effort (and money) Fox put into creating these “viral” videos for their upcoming movie “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. I’m sure they’ll be more as the film nears its August 5, 2011 release date, but until then, here are the four that have been released so far. (By the way, it’s amusing to note that Fox isn’t even bothering to pretend they didn’t create these; I mean, they posted it through the movie’s official YouTube channel, after all.)

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” stars James Franco, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Tyler Labine, Chelah Horsdal, Leah Gibson, and is directed by Rupert Wyatt.

    It looks like chimps are smarter than humans.

  • Shazam!

    I’m curious to learn how that chimp is able to play a first person shooter made in the last 10 years without having a finger on either the R1 or R2 button. Hmmm – evolved indeed!
