Wow, Comcast is Gotham City's cable provider

All credit unto Gizmodo for spotting this tragic ad. In anticipation of the new Batman movie, which does, in fact, look pretty good (and I hate stupid action/adventure movies), there’s a cute “fake” Web site for Gotham Cable News, presumably the fictional city’s source of fair and balanced news.

And wouldn’t you know it, Comcast is Gotham’s cable provider! Quick, don’t pass up the Triple Play, so named to trick consumers into thinking they’re getting something rare and beneficial.

Never mind that in the real Gotham, New York City, Time Warner is the predominant provider.

Anyone else tired of “viral” marketing? It was fun the first time; now it’s a little well-worn.
