    It didn't take long for me to figure that we are supposed to hand these out around the places we live. The question is, however...how?

    We are the elite, ladies and jelly-spoons! We've found all the stuff, we've been giddy about this since Batman Begins came out, we've done it all except film the damn movie. Every piece of info, every legit picture is all our doing...all of it. So, why screw up now? Why mess up on something so important...

    Mr. J. obviously wants our help in getting the world ready to see the fire hurling towards it. He wants us to let the sheep know what's about to hit them...but he's left the finre details up to us...

    The obvious way out is to simply buy a newspaper from a stand, and slip a few copies of the Gotham Times in. But, that's not very...theatrical, is it? It don't do what we've been charged with justice, and with only 25 copies per person, we can't just drive through downtown with the windows down having these things fly out everywhere. No no...we must do something eye catching, yet concerveitive...

    I had the idea of jokerizing a few copies of these papers ourselves, giving the clues out to the "normals" our there we've already uncovered, using the hahahatimes as a basis to go from. There's bound to be people out there excited for the movie, but don't know what's going on.

    My suggestion is as follows: we jokerize a few copies (say 3) per person, and leave them in places where folks who might catch it are abound to attract: bars, movie theaters, local shopping centers, comic book stores, malls, stores that have unique shoppers (Hot Topic, Spencers Gifts, ect). Hell, even get the managment in on it.

    Things are starting to get a little more public than they were before, which means it's time to un-silence the lambs and let the sheep cry;

    Jokers Back in Town!

    i actually think it's simpler than that. the way i see it, no picture on RDK had more than 25 people. so instead of sending a personalized package to each entry, they sent the same thing to everyone. the picture with 25, each person gets one, but then solo pictures, they get 25 copies to themselves. it was just easier for them to do it that way.

    You really think it's that simple, luncha? Or...am I getting a "stupid newb, stupid thread, stupid idea" vibe from you?

    no. i really think it's that simple. i wanna see if any of the 21+ people got even MORE papers. but i'm thinkin they didnt. solo people got 25. and i think everyone else did too. it's so that everyone involved can get one, but sending out specific amounts was probably a pain in the ass, so they just did a fixed amount. that makes the most sense to me. that's not to say you shouldnt jokerize a couple and leave them places. but i don't necessarily think that was the intention

    It wasn't 25: it was 21 and over...

    While I think you might be right...there's something about all these papers sitting on my bed that scream to me...that and the mojority of the people on the site were in the 1-6 catagory...

    yeah, but i'm just sayin in the 21+ category, no one had more than 25 people.

    and yes, the majority of people had few people involved. perhaps they intended us to distribute them, perhaps not. i mean, you should anyway. because it'd be fun. i just wonder what the best way to do it is. i know you gave some suggestions, but you never know. cuz one person may find one and just keep it cuz it's cool and never show anyone. but you might as well.

    We should send some of these papers into our local news channels, MTV, G4, etc. places like that.

    What do you guys think?

    Local news might have some fun with it, if you give them a full explanation of the viral campaign. But I'm sure MTV, G4, etc are already in the know.

    I couldnt part with a piece of Dark Knight film history. I couldnt give any of them away, unless i sold a few. I could never part with all of them.

    I'm not saying give them all out, I'm saying give out just a few to get more TDK movie exposure out there.

    I dont think we need to do that - the Newspapers are online now anyway, so people could access them on the Internet.

    Jokerizing the newspapers and sending them out to different stores and venues? I think that's a bit much. If you want to do Warner Bros job then feel free, but if WB wants the Gotham newspapers on tv or in stores, then it would already be there. This just sounds like backwards advertising to me. What next? After this WB wants us to then make up scavenger hunts for the general audience too...

    Rest assure, The Dark Knight shall have enough movie exposure.

    Okay then, answer me this. Why would the WB send us 25 copies each?

    What's WB's thinking in that?

    Going to need extra copies in any event that your house burns down.


    Hopefully everyone is smart enough to place half of them in a safety deposit box.

    I don't live near Malibu so that won't happen. :D
    Done.



    Okay now seriously, what is the WB's thinking here with the 25 copies per?


    That's one theory. ;)

    It might be fun to leave some on a train or in a library or something, but keep hold of a few! Each of them may one day be a family heirloom!

    shame the RDK site isnt publishing more pics, cos i think it'd be a great shot to get someone in their Joker get-up snapped reading the gotham times on the train or subway or something :)
