Volkswagen a star in new "Curious George" movie

Product placements in animated films are rare because lead times for such movies are usually quite long. And considering the pace at which the auto industry moves, one wouldn't expect a car placement to appear in an animated film. But Volkswagen managed to get its Touareg SUV into Universal Pictures' new "Curious George" film, according to Reuters. The movie, which opened this week, features a VW based on the original Touareg Concept. The off-roader is driven by a character called the Man in the Yellow Hat.
