The Dark Knight RisesPosted by Chad on May 23rd, 2011
I consider myself to be a pretty smart guy. I’m no Bruce Wayne. You’d have to have his brains to crack the code that reveals the picture of the new villain, Bane, in the upcoming film, The Dark Knight Rises.
If you visit the official page, www.thedarkknightrises.com you’ll hear chanting that really doesn’t make sense.
However, some friendly nerd realized, like most Batman story lines, there is some meaning to this madness. The chanting apparently reveals a code for a twitter #hashtag that, when tweeted, reveals an image of the newest villain on the official site.
Amazing thought was put in to this. I can imagine the movie producers sitting around thinking “how can we make this fun for the Batman fanatics as well as mainstream movie-goers?” Lets reveal this character, who is equal parts mad man and super genius, in a way that only a genius can understand, make it social, make it sharable, and make it valuable, but don’t tell anyone. Eventually someone will figure it out. Then they will tell everyone about the amazing thing they just discovered.
I’ve been listening to the chanting now for an hour and I can’t make sense of it. So for you lazy ones out there. Search #thefirerises on twitter and you should find the image with no problem. Enjoy.
And if you are just plain lazy…
