Crazy Batman Begins Ad

After always discussing how I thought Paramount consisted of a bunch of marketing geniuses for using the internet as a powerful tool for marketing their films, some body had to go even a step further. But who is this somebody?

Well, Warner Bros decided to flex its marketing power and put a Batman Begins ad in the most unlikely place. Can you guess where? Come on... guess.

In a freakin multiplayer video game, that's where! After first viewing the image posted by SHH, I was giggling. But then it hit me! Will this type of marketing be the wave of the future? With all the multiplayer communities forming across the internet, it would be easy for all these and future multiplayer games to take advantage of this marketing approach and host their own billboards, picture ads, and whatever else they want to use to sell to movie companies looking to market their product.

Imagine, you are playing a multiplayer game and come across a television that is running a movie trailer. Do you stop and watch? This could be just the beginning.

Anyway, pretty humorous update and a very interesting way to market a film. For the full size go to SHH.
