Maybe It's Not the Bridge We Should Worry About

Remember my discussion about movies using the Golden Gate Bridge as their favorite landmark to destroy?

Well, after a lull in Golden Gate abuse, it seemed as if "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was a return to form, with its trailer depicting apes overrunning the bridge. I haven't seen the film, but I hear it involves a South San Francisco biotech corporation (perhaps modeled on Genetech). A supersmart chimp is produced, who ultimately leads an assault on the Golden Gate.

So I was surprised to see this full-page ad in my Chronicle this morning.

Apparently they destroy everything BUT the bridge.
