I just got an email from StarWars.com that had a link to a site that referenced the date of May 4, 2011 as having some sort of major significance to the Star Wars franchise. It’s done in a way that hints at some sort of huge revelation about Lucas’ saga, although there’s a curious inclusion of the Blu-ray logo amongst the advertisement. When I followed the link I was just taken to a site with a countdown clock tuned to the date of 5/4/11 and a link to the official Star Wars Twitter account.
What could it all mean? Obviously it’s some sort of viral marketing, but what exactly is it for? Does it have to do with the Blu-ray versions of the movie because of the logo being present in the ad? Who knows, but I guess I’ve got somewhere to be on May 4. For a look at the mysterious 5/4 Star Wars page you can use this link, or glance at the screenshot below. You’ve probably been scammed into another one of George’s tricks to make mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money…
