If you go to whysoserious.com/masoleum, you’ll see a giant safe. If you set your computer’s clock to 7:38 a.m., the safe opens, and inside the safe is this message:
“Nice working thinking outside the box. A clown should never take anything at face value. Put your feet up, take a little rest. I’ll be in touch in a few days, and then I’ll have another little job for you.”
Previous “jobs” have revealed photos of The Joker and even the teaser trailer, so maybe this time we’ll get a poster or a longer trailer with footage.
With The Joker involved, who knows?
Other new official Dark Knight marketing sites include Gotham Unified School District, Acme Security Systems (including a “toxin watch” for The Scarecrow’s fear toxin), and Gotham Victims Advocate Foundation.
And my personal favorite, Gotham Cab Company.
Here’s one for the Gotham National Bank.
To help victims of the Nerve Toxin attack, Gotham National Bank said today the company will contribute $100,000 to numerous local relief agencies throughout the area to help with relief and rebuilding efforts
It’s nice to see these sites reflecting how the events of Batman Begins are still being felt by the good people of Gotham City.
Batman’s got a lot of work to do.
And how much would you like to bet that in the months leading up to the movie, all these sites get “Jokered”?
Each one is four pages, so make sure you read them all.
And if you follow all the circled words in The Joker’s version, it makes some kind of riddle.
And there’s also Gotham City Rail, Gotham Police Department, community action group We Are the Answer, Remembering Gina (for the tragically slain Gina Tortericci) and a new personality profile test conducted by The Joker.
