The makers of Elysium have already invaded the internet with a few viral sites to help promote the new sci-fi film by Neil Blomkamp. Now, they’ve gone into the real world with some new viral ads similar to some of the stuff they did for Blomkamp’s District 9 film. See a few of these text-based ads after the jump.

Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

Elysium opens in theaters on August 9th.
