Well here's the story of Project Marvin - Marvin the Monkey is a puppet that was borrowed from a little old lady and sent on a 'round the world' journey. The story is true and the pictures are real! Marvin the Monkey carries on the stolen gnome (or roaming gnome) tradition, a prank that reached worldwide notice when it was used in the movie AMELIE. Marvin's travels have taken him everywhere from Maine to Paris, with adventures ranging from the Democratic National Convention to Burning Man. The celebrities he's gotten pictures with include Lily Tomlin, Steve Martin, Hugh Hefner, Kelly Osbourne, Lou Reed, Carol Channing, Elvira, Billy Bob Thornton, and Steven Seagal... www.marvinthemonkey.com - look for the waving monkey!
