Movie Tie-Ins Done Right: David Kessler's "The Pine Barrens" Tree Frog Ringtone

With the film itself still in production, Kessler has issued a wonderful promotional tool for his work in the form of a Pine Barrens tree frog ringtone. As far as marketing tie-ins go, this is about as cool and graceful as it gets -- and it's way better than the iPhone's default tone.
