Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced that the firm has signed a licensing agreement with Paramount Licensing Inc. granting rights to manufacture and market USB Flash drives based on Paramount Pictures movie title, “The Godfather.”

The company expects to begin shipping its first GODFATHER USB Flash drives this month, which will be preloaded with memorable quotes and still photos from the feature film. Additional new models based on “The Godfather” theme will follow in 2009.

The drives will be available in capacities from 1GB - 8GB

Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James explained, “The introduction of movie-themed USB drives marks the beginning of a new era for the Flash industry. These drives will capture the spirit of ‘The Godfather,’ and will be a sure hit with millions of Don Corleone fans.”
 
“’The Godfather’ is one of the most iconic Hollywood films ever, and is a fitting property to help launch this new product category in the licensing industry.  We are very excited to be working with Super Talent on this innovative product launch,” said Michael Corcoran, President, Paramount Consumer Products and Recreation Group.

Interesting...I guess.

WTF?!?!  The Godfather and USB drives have nothing in common, and those movies are getting OLD.  Do they actually think this is going to sway the purchasing decision of more than one in a million persons?

If I was a major stockholder of Super Talent, I would start a petition to have whomever that came up with this idea shot.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
