page 46 Hank Perlman, Hungry Man, 212-420-9308Dear Diary: We saw a preview for Sphere, that new movie where Dustin Hoffman finds a giant matzoh ball on the bottom of the ocean. Then we saw this weird ad for Smokehouse almonds, where the product seems to have a bigger role in the movie than Sharon Stone. Can almonds cross their legs? Anyway, our friend Howie went to a screening and he says a package of almonds is seen for a second in the skeevy hand of this, like, dead astronaut mummy. One of the actors might've said something about the almonds, but he can't remember. There's nothing like a good movie placement to keep your product top-of-skull, you know?
