There is an image of a computer and a ticking clock that counts down from the six-hour mark…

Could this be one of Jigsaw’s latest games? Looks like we may have some answers in a few hours…

    I tried to gain access to the site but she’s ruthless.
    “TruBlood” seems to be what is involved…some top-secret synthetic.
    I tried to bullshit my way in a number of times but she always seems to trip me up.

    Looks like she logs in every night at 6pm. Interesting viral website…

  • green eyed monster

    I got a chick looking bored and angsty.

  • RingoJ

    I heard her say a few things

    Even Ol’ Spooky Tooth gets it right every once in a while.

  • Chainsaw

    Yeah, like I’m gonna trust something Devin says…


  • Sirand

    The queque counts down and then you go to video chat with her. Although nobody can hear her.

  • Uncle Creepy

    Countdown’s done.

    All I get is a video of a chick staring at me.

    When I hit QUEUE it says I am number 26.

    When I hit ENTER is says denied.

    Last I heard, True Blood was about a world where a virus breaks out and it turns out the cure lies in Vampires. Since Vampires save the world, they become like rock stars with groupies and such. This is their story with waring houses and politics and such. Could have changed since this was a long time ago, but thats the skinny.

  • The Woman In Black

    I agree – Ball is a genius. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the series since I first heard about it. Very clever campaign.

  • Sirand

    Looks like it! Awesome!
    Maybe we’ll see the first trailer for the show.
    Allan Ball rules…Can’t wait to see what is revealed on the website!

  • The Woman In Black

    Phooey. Neither UC nor I got one.

  • thedudeabides

    I wonder why I got one of these yesterday.

    More weird shit:

    Can’t take credit for finding them as they’re all popping up here:

    as more and more people start chipping in and breaking this down.
