Forgetting Sarah Marshall Characters Have More Of A Web Presence Than Most Real People

If we all sign something promising to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall, can they make the marketing stop? There is such a thing as overpromotion! Such as:

  • Jonah Hill’s character, Matt the Waiter, has a MySpace.

  • Kristen Bell’s character, Sarah Marshall, stars in a fake show called Crime Scene which has a fake website.

  • And, as PopCandy points out, you can watch an entire fake video of a fake song by a fake band in the movie, Infant Sorrow, here, without even knowing if you like the movie yet!

  • And that’s not counting the post-it notes on taxis and at least two fake blogs.

Okay, we’ll see it, we promise, enough!
