Tonight while tweeting about the “Agents on a Mission” tour, I stumbled upon what appeared to be just a bunch of Twitbots spamming, trying to get unlucky users to access a malware site. Being the cocky Macbook user that I am (we don’t get viruses), I decided to follow the URL. Exactly what is “it” that you’ll miss if you go too far? Read on to find out…
I followed this web address: www.cars-n-deals.com (don’t worry, I’ve already checked it out) and was redirected to Disney/Pixar’s Youtube page.
If you watch closely, you’ll quickly realize that something isn’t quite right in the video below. You may even catch a few blatant Pixar references and clues to what is really going on.
Listen closely to the lyrics of the “Cars N’ Deals of Emeryville” jingle (or read them below):
Cars N’ Deals of Emeryville
Just take the big highway West then East
Exit Finn road take the nineteenth left
Drive about six miles
But don’t go too far or you’ll miss it
Don’t go too far or you’ll miss it
So what does it mean, “don’t go too far or you’ll miss it…”? Of course this could just be reminding you that if you aren’t looking carefully, you’ll miss the dealership. But of course, if you’re a super spy like Finn McMissile, you’ll quickly catch on and realize that the song is telling you that you’ll miss the next clue. Close to the end of the video there is some distortion that you may not have caught that the first time around. Go back and pause at the :57 mark.
Study the paused image and you’ll see another web address: www.chromeA113.com. Once again, it’s safe to type that into your address bar. You’ll once again be redirected to Disney/Pixar’s Youtube page, but a find a different video playing:
Pretty neat huh? It looks as though Disney/Pixar is going the Toy Story 3 viral video route.
Cars 2 opens in Disney Digital 3D, IMAX 3D and 2D on June 24th
