Big shouts out to loyal Chad Dukes Wrestling Show fan, Craig for sending along evidence of what may be one of the WWE’s shrewdest pieces of viral marketing to date.
During the Jack Swagger vs. Sheamus match on the latest RAW Supershow WWE put its twitter graphic in the bottom left corner where they usually display WWE related trending topics or what hashtags you should use to discuss the broadcast. That’s not so unusual and at first it only displayed, @WWE #RAW seen below.
Shortly there after it went to a static-y version, with color bars and some hard to read text, seen here.
That’s when the plot thickens…
It’s tough to make out but the text is a link, a link to a youtube channel from user itbegins2012, this account only came online today and only has one video, here it is courtesy of youtube.
Eery right? It features a young boy writing in a notebook and talking in vocabulary beyond his years. His message is simple, “On the second day of two thousand twelve a familiar force shall arrive to claim what is his, and it will be the end of the world as you know it.” So, apparently something familiar is coming on 1-2-12. Now, the obvious explanation is The Undertaker returning to action, but we’d love to hear what you think, leave us a comment below.
