Music is Not Forgotten in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 20, 2008) Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a new comedy released in theaters nationwide April 18, 2008, highlights several Yamaha instruments, including a Motif XS7 music production synthesizer workstation, S90ES keyboard, MO6 music production synthesizer and two CG171S classic acoustic guitars.

"Judd Apatow is on a roll producing hit after hit, so we were happy to be a part of his next project by providing Yamaha gear," comments Chris Gero, vice president of Yamaha Corporate Artist Affairs, Inc.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall may be the next comedy jewel for producer Judd Apatow, known for his recent hits The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad. The movie stars Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) and Jason Segel (Knocked Up, How I Met Your Mother) who also wrote the screenplay. Filmed in Los Angeles and O'ahu, Hawaii, the plot revolves around struggling musician Peter Bretter (Segel) and his television star girlfriend Sarah Marshall (Bell), whom he has spent six years idolizing.

His world is turned upside down when she dumps him, and in an effort to clear his head, he jets off to Hawaii for a relaxing vacation. Little does he know Sarah is traveling to the same island … and she's bringing along her tragically new hip British-rocker boyfriend (Russell Brand). Not only that, but the three are sharing a hotel. Hilarity is sure to ensue as Peter struggles to deal with the reality of Sarah's new life and his lack thereof with a few too many cocktails and a new crush.

Also appearing in the film are Paul Rudd (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Friends), Jonah Hill (Superbad, Knocked Up) and Mila Kunis (That 70s Show, Family Guy), among other recognizable comedian actors.

Part romantic comedy, part disaster film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is touted to be the world's first romantic disaster comedy.
