I really hope not.

The reason why TDK viral worked out so well is because we were constantly doing something.

Every month there was a new puzzle, rally/protest, or event that we could do. It kept us entertained, got more people involved in doing the events with us and hyped up even more for the movie.

SO.... to the people that are doing the IM2 viral. Please try and make it just as good as TDK viral.

A viral campaign is basically an alternate way to promoting a movie.

Instead of WB can't we just say Marvel ??

Or can someone make a ninja icon but have the eyes glowing. Like the Iron Man eyes.

You only get that e-mail if you send an e-mail to the address on the Business cards. The address is also on the signature from the letter Redd posted.

Something was posted a few pages back, but it turned out to be nothing dealing with the IM2 ARG.

EDIT:

I'm going through the code again and found the name Oliver Seidel. I googled it and it's tied in with http://www.deliciousdays.com which is also in the code (which was mentioned a few pages back).

Then, I looked at the deliciousdays site and saw that it was rated one of Time's 50 Coolest Websites. So I'm looking around seeing if I can find any contact info about the creators of the site and I find the name Nicole Stich. Both Nicole and Oliver have something to do with some kind of deliciousdays cookbook but nothing to do with web design.

The only thing I can find about the design/layout of deliciousdays links to this site http://joshuaink.com/ maintained by John Oxton who is, in fact, a web developer. His site is http://johnoxton.co.uk/ but there's nothing on it at all pertaining to web design.

That's all I've been able to dig up so far.

Just a funny thing I discovered. If you remove "now" from the URL and hit enter, it will take you to this site: http://www.starkindustries.com/

I just got another e-mail from Stark Industries

Hey there!

Thank you so much for being one of the first people to apply for a job at Stark Industries. So far, the response has been incredible. You are among the best and brightest and your interest in joining our ranks is truly appreciated.

Already we have an overwhelming number of applicants and we plan to take our time thoroughly investigating each one. It may be a long process, but it is the only way to ensure that we find the absolute best candidates to work at Stark Industries.

We will contact you soon as we narrow down our selection.

All the best,
Kay Baker

They are going to be "narrowing" it down. Why say that in a e-mail?

That just means to me that not everyone will be able to participate in the viral marketing.

Maybe everyone will be able to participate, but only a few will be the major players, like the guys with the cell phones in the TDK viral. They were the viral company's connection to the rest of us.

That is true.

Hopefully some of us will be given "Stark Industry phones" so we can keep in contact with Tony.

That would be really awesome.
