What the Heck is Project A.P.E.?

It's obvious that the title chosen for this event had several people scratching their heads and wondering "what the hell is going on?". For those who did not catch the explanation, here is alittle more information on why "Luma is going A P E".

In May of 2001, 20th Century Fox , was preparing to release its summer blockbuster, “ Planet of the Apes .” They wanted a publicity stunt, and saw that computer geeks everywhere seemed to be flocking to this new hobby, Geocaching . To try and capatalize on this potential market, Fox Studios formulated a “sub-plot” that had absolutely nothing to do with the movie: Renegade humans were trying to reveal an “ A lternative P rimate E volution” theory by placing artifacts around the world. Code Name: Project A.P.E.
