Adventures in April Fool's Day PR: Oscilloscope Acquires Woody Allen Classic


Oscilloscope Laboratories has never done things especially by the book, so its April 1 announcement that it had acquired Woody Allen's 1971 comedy Frederick Gertten's activist documentary Bananas!* is suitably nuts on the only day they can really get away with it. To wit: The press release after the jump, complete with comment from O-Scope founder Adam Yauch, an ambivalent Gertten and the one and only Wood Man himself. Sort of.
