Marketing Judd Apatow's New Movie

I've been noticing lots of stealth ads around New York City for the new Judd Apatow produced anti-romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It's about another schlub who gets dumped by his overachieving girlfriend and winds up at the same hotel in Hawaii with her and her new musician boyfriend. You can't really tell they are for a movie, but they are really offensive and have started to piss me off.

The one that set me over the edge was: "Yes you do look fat in those jeans- Sarah Marshall" "You Suck Sarah Marshall" and then today I saw one that said: "My Mother Always Hated You."

Way to ratchet up the misogyny, Judd. I'm definitely boycotting this film. Anyone want to join with me?
