I stand corrected on the amount of Snakes on a Plane fan-generated marketing going on out there, thanks to Mack Collier and Jackie Huba.
As Jackie summarized at her blog: ‘fans have organized parties at midnight showings, including throwing paper airplanes and rubber snakes at the screen’; ‘Damnation, makers of some of the ﬁrst SoaP t-shirts, is organizing a movie-watching party’; ‘SoaP fans can meet up to watch the movie in their city on this online forum or attend one of 40 parties sponsored by Fark.com’.
I would still love to see the outcome of the earlier-blogged movie competition (the one with Lions on a Bus) at this time, blog activity hyping the ﬁlm beyond attendance (e.g. Snakes on a Blog), an online première for folks who can’t be there, and pre-première coverage, maybe by fans on YouTube (some earlier videos exist). However, the forum has some Snakes buzz, and I did concede from the beginning that 11 million Google references to the ﬁlm title, in quotes, is incredibly high.
I still take my hat off to all these parties’ organizers so far, especially remarkable as it’s all for a ﬁlm that no one has seen yet. Posted by Jack Yan, 21:45
I think these people are determined to love this movie no matter HOW bad it is. In fact, the more it sucks the more beloved it will be. I find the whole thing hilarious.
I’ll be interested to see the reviews come Friday, to be sure!Post a Comment
