Nerdglee Factor 9

That's Heath Ledger as the Joker, holding a knife to Maggie Gyllenhalls' face. It's from another viral site (like this or this - hint: hilight the screen!) for next summer's the Dark Knight.

Earlier today it had the following image up:

This was accompanied by directions to one of the Joker's recruitment centers, presumably near the Con. As far as what those intrepid internetters found once they got there is anybody's guess, (A knife to the face? Ambushed by ninjas? By Jehovah's Witnesses? By Prince?) but it's a pretty cool guerilla marketing gimmick, innit? It got me blogging.

I just got finished getting to the "end" of that site, and popped over here to see what's up. Great minds are surfing alike, cuz. After navigating through the site and correctly entering the passwords, you get to this page. There's a flickering link to a teaser trailer in the fourth quadrant. SPOOKY TO THE MAX!!1!one!! This site is where I found all the passwords to all the pages.

Oh, and I guess a limo pulled up at the Con at 10am (a crowd had gathered). Some men got out and grabbed a guy from the crowd and stuck him in the limo with them. Guess he's the winner. SKETCHY.
