X-Men First Class is doing something interesting to generate attention in the release of it’s first trailer – they want you to become their Facebook friend!
By clicking the handy “LIKE!” button (potential) fans of the movie will be able to check out the trailer literally SECONDS before the rest of the internet does. The trailer will be released sometime today, Thursday, February 10.
But wait! There’s more!
According to the press release, “As the number of fans who share the trailer grows, a specially designed X-App will subsequently unlock special content. The X-App gives users the power to evolve their Facebook experience and customize their profile pictures.”
So, basically, I guess you’ll be able to change your avatar like everyone one their Mom did last year when they came out with that Mad Men avatar generator?
Oh, well. What can it hurt? I’m already a fan of “Sleep” on Facebook. This can’t be much worse…
Stop what you’re doing and look at this poster for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off designed by Joshua Budich.
I saw Budich’s work a couple of days ago over at Geek Tyrant and immediately fell in love with it. I’d love to get my hands on a copy, but they’ve only produced 75 copies for a John Hughes gallery show and aren’t available online. Bummer.
Looking at a poster like this and posters like those that show up at Mondo Tees from time to time totally make me want to try my hand at something similar. I’ve had it in mind for a long time and I’d like to try and apply this treatment to my very own Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy poster. Done right, I think the reaction would be huge.
One of these days, I have to find time to do it.
