First thing I saw was a medium sized (3 mtr width and 2 mtr high) Kong poster featuring above the stairs up to the small screens. It was the famous Vs. poster also spotted in germany. Unfortunately, haven't got my new mobile phone with camera function yet, so I'm not able to give you a picture of the poster. The Poster had one small error though: "Music by Howard Shore", I guess it was made before the change...

King Kong in 'Wallace and Gromit and the curse of the were-rabbit)

After spotting the poster and even more wanting it to be december 14th I went to watch the clay-animation 'Wallace and Gromit' (which is great by the way) and saw something interesting at the end. [!Spoiler!] After the were-rabbit crushed the 'big vegetable competition' at the Stottington mansion, it is being cornered by an angry mob. The were-rabbit picks up miss Stottingham and starts climb the mansion King Kong style!! Even better, after it has made it to the top, Gromit decides to save the were-rabbit from certain dead by one of the golden bullets meant to kill it and goes after it in a merry-go-round airplane, which ofcourse results in a scene, quite like the Empire State building scene at the end of King Kong!

Well, that was my Kong day! I hope to have at least brought you something interesting.
