Last night at the Academy Awards, a silent film won best picture. Michel Hazanavicius's The Artist, a movie about silent film star George Valentin, is itself a classic silent film—for the most part, it has no sound effects or dialogue, just music and on-screen action.
This month is Responsible Pet Owners Month. And to mark it, Nintendo hired Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier from The Artist, as its official spokesdog. This month is also the Academy Awards.
Did you know that February was Responsible Pet Owners Month? Nintendo's marketing team does, and they've spared no expense in securing someone else's pet to help sell nintendogs + cats for the 3DS.
