Ridley Scott’s much-anticipated Prometheus may have already hit theaters, but that doesn’t mean that the film’s viral marketing campaign has hit an end. In fact, it looks like it may keep up until at least this October.
MovieViral.com has posted details on how a clue at the end credits of the film has led to a new website, www.whatis101112.com that includes details on “Thus Spoke Zarathustra,” a book by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and a new video that seems very similar to his TED talk from last February (or 11 years from now, depending on how you look at it). Here’s how the site describes the book:
Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885. Much of the work deals with ideas such as the “eternal recurrence of the same”, the parable on the “death of God”, and the “prophecy” of the Übermensch, which were first introduced in The Gay Science.
Check out the video in the player below and see if you can decipher the clues that will point to the next step in the viral. Though the date of October 11th could tie to the film’s home video release, it happens to fall on a Thursday which, though not impossible, would certainly be an unusual street date for a DVD. October 11th is also the first day of the New York Comic-Con.
