UPDATE October 2013: Finally, after all these years, we get a reaction from the man himself! Natalija asked Nicholas Cage in an interview if he knew about this and what he thinks about it. Here’s the entire interview.
UPDATE: (November 26th 2011) A lot of media picked the story up, including Trojka in Serbia and Huffington post abroad. Since a lot of people were interested in how Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter ended up on the cover, I asked and got the explanation from the graphic designer of the book. She says it was an honest mistake, and I believe her. She also says that they pulled the book from the print as soon as they found out about it, but some books were already printed and delivered, and that was it.—
I just found out via twitter something funny and completely unrelated to anything, but so odd that I gotta share.
Apparently Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter are on the cover of Serbian biology text book for 8th grade. At first i thought it’s photoshopped, but then I looked it up, and I got two covers of the book for sale. It’s a still from “Raising Arizona”, and it’s supposed to represent a happy family, because it’s probably what kids learn about at the time. Little did the graphic designer knew that in the movie, it’s not really a happy family.
Funny thing, these books are from 1998, and if I remember correctly, the books I learned from back in 1993 didn’t have Nick Cage and Holly at the cover, which means they must’ve been inserted there to make the cover more interesting. They sure did!
