The sci-fi fantasy from Frank Coraci, director of such films as "The Wedding Singer" and "The Waterboy," tells the tale of a workaholic architect who is able to manipulate his life simply by touching a button of a magical universal remote control. In keeping with the high tech theme, "Click" highlights the most recent developments in music technology. These include:

A Yamaha SVB-200 Silent Bass, SVV-200 Silent Electric Viola, SVC-200 Silent Cello, SLG100S Silent Guitar, YTR-8335RGS Xeno Trumpet, YBL-605 Bass Trombone, YTS-82Z Tenor Saxophone and DTXPL Electronic Drum Kit, as well as two EV-204 Silent Electric Violins. This cutting edge complement of instruments was spotlighted in the futuristic wedding reception scene of the Sandler character's son and featured Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries singing "Linger."

The film's all-star cast also includes Kate Beckinsale, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Walken, Henry Winkler and Sean Astin.

"Yamaha is honored to contribute to entertaining and innovative films such as 'Click,'" says Chris Gero, corporate director, Yamaha Corporate Artist Affairs. "We are equally happy that Frank Coraci has chosen our instruments to illustrate his vision of the future."
