OK, so last week’s video with the chimp playing video games was a little suspect seeing as dude wasn’t pressing any buttons meaning he plays like grandma does, and grandma doesn’t win Call of Duty ever. But this one is a little more impressive, at least insofar as monkeys showing up humans is impressive. The gist here is that chips have a near photographic short term memory capability. So when they do rise up to destroy us, try to stay about 5 minutes ahead of them and they may forget you exist at all. These Planet of the Apes guys put some decent viral marketing together. No one ever markets Renee Zellwegger movies with the proposition that monkeys ae smarter than the rest of us.
Need some evidence that apes are getting smarter before the release of Rise of the Planet of the Apes? How about a chimpanzee cyber-killing the hell out of people in Far Cry 2? Let’s be honest though, playing video games with a chimp would be kinda cool.
