Why So Serious have updated their front page for the first time in what seems an age — it now covers the entire Viral marketing campaign complete with Joker checklist on tasks, a list of Gotham city web pages and assorted items that can all be clicked for part of the viral adventure. For example, bowling shoes, a personality quiz, the trailer clippings, letters from a ransom note, etc.
Three future tasks have yet to be ticked off:
12. Be good to my guests
13. Gather all my fans
14. Leave a big mark
Some of the viral links on WSS contain reports on the viral event, with date, a list of occurrences, the end result, pictures and the aftermath — providing a succinct review of how we’ve got this far:
Citizens for Batman
Where a page originally stood we now find a countdown, heading ominously towards July 8th. CFB have also been sending out their propaganda to lucky Gotham citizens,
Including the letter:
Citizens for Batman!
It’s time to go public. To really defend Batman, we have to show the world how big our movement is. So check out the goodies inside and show your pride in CFB!
And get ready for a MAJOR show of force July 8th. (check out citizensforbatman.org for the latest.
Defend Gotham. Defend Batman!
Founder, Citizens for Batman
Thanks Dioz, Csam and Pierre!
The Joker sent out another round of picture messages to the lucky holders of the prize phones,
To find the next sideshow, share these with your fellow goons. There’s no substitution for fun.
The pictures looked like this and were labelled 1A, 3B, etc. to form a larger grid:
In this grid there are 21 distinct shapes, each of which can be assigned a letter. From this pattern of 21 letters, a substitution cypher (as hinted in the text message) can be applied to reveal the message:
Color me impressed. Just use the second letter of the fourth word to the right of each circled five-letter word to find out where to go from here
This applies to the new Ha Ha Ha Times, revealing “Red Balloons” and hence:
This presents us with another flash game with the apparent aim of inflating and bursting balloons to get points. At a certain point of inflation the clown eyes turn blue — when they are all blue a ticket pops out which links to “Inept Lackeys”.
Hired goons are so unreliable these days. That’s why I only employ the ones that graduated from the top of their class at Clown College (and being opera-lovers didn’t hurt, either). But Maroni’s got his hands full with inept lackeys like little Stevie and Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo? I’ll tell you where they are: sittin’ pretty with a smile on their face. They tried to reschedule their pick up service at Pasquale’s, but things didn’t go according to plan.
Pasquale’s has a telephone number for which the passcode is “Verdi” (83734).
Thanks for the heads up Pierre!
Bryan has sent in a new viral website, the bistro of the fella that was interviewed in Gotham Tonight #2:
Jim has sent out an email to all MCU personnel — could this relate to the dock activity we saw yesterday?
To all MCU personnel,
With the probe into money laundering operations of the Gotham mobs well underway, I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and ask you all to keep your eyes open.
We all know that the mob can be quite ingenious when it comes to money laundering schemes. MCU must be just as ingenious in trying to root these schemes out.
Please, in your everyday life – as well as your work on the job – keep a lookout for anything out of the ordinary that may signal a money laundering scheme. Overheard conversations, suspicions of stores you frequent, etc. Everything is fodder for this critical investigation.
If you have any leads, tips, or information that can help the Major Crimes Unit crack this murky network of banks, businesses, and the people who run them, do not hesitate to contact me.
Looks like the Joker is up to his mischief again. Bruce, a proud owner of a Joker phone, has just got a text from email@example.com, reading:
Welcome to Short-Attention-Span-Theater: Lash Guilt Thru Unit (-un)”
Which works out as “Laugh Til It Hurts” and takes us to the new flash game:
New Acme Security Systems page found:
And a flash of The Joker towards the end of the video…
The code has been cracked and the forums found — the Nycticeius Underground!
The words were:

Why We Fight:
I’ve been patrolling my neighborhood for several weeks now. I’ve seen crime happen in front of me. It’s obvious City Hall doesn’t care, so why should we? I think that’s an important question to answer before we set out to DO SOMETHING about crime in Gotham. The answer might be different for each of us. For me, I want to fight because I lost my sister to violent crime. She was attacked and brutally assaulted when she was leaving a group of friends at a restaurant early one Sunday night. Someone was waiting for her by her car. She screamed and yelled “fire,” but no one came to help. Unlike many victims, she went to the police, but they didn’t do anything. They gave her the runaround for months until she found her own peace. I fight for my sister. I fight so bad things don’t happen again to anyone. I fight because the police won’t. I fight to take back the city I used to be proud to call home.
Gotham City Pizzeria has updated for its 16th June special promotion. There is now a map of the US with locations marked out in green and red — green means that there are free pizzas to be grabbed, red means they’ve all been taken. The “order your free pizza” link takes you to a dominos page with a store locator. 245 pizzas available in total!

The authorities are after us, so we had to be a little secretive about our hide-out. Here is a little something to point you in the right direction:
You need to share this information with other concerned Gotham citizens like yourself. I’m sure you can figure out how.
When you put the pieces together, join us — and help us fight back against the enemies of Gotham City.
Never give up,

This package comes with a different letter and a username.

This URL leads to a blank page: http://www.citizensforbatman.org/midnight/. Maybe it will have content at midnight?
With guess work I have built up the second part of the URL by going through various species of bat, I hit lucky with Nyctalus. Then, alternating species and normal words I have got this far:
Gotham Cable News has updated, there is now a link to the Gotham City Pizzeria (remember today’s promotion!), a submit your sightings of Batman article and submission page and most importantly, the high resolution, high quality 8 minute “Gotham Tonight” video which originally aired on friday.

Have You Spotted Batman in Your Neighborhood (Submit Pictures):
We want your Batman pics. We just can’t cover the entire city with GCN photographers, so we’re asking for citizens to submit their photos. Click here for submission page.
Whenever news breaks, GCN is there. We’ve covered all the news you care about — from traffic tie-ups to police chases to scandal at City Hall.
One news target is proving elusive — Batman. Everyone is talking about him — the cops, the criminals, even the kids on the playground seem to know all about this mythical hero.
But the infamous crusader seems to be quite camera-shy. In fact, GCN news operatives have not yet snapped one usable shot of this controversial Gotham figure.
That’s why we need to ask you, the citizens of Gotham for help. Keep a lookout for the familiar dark silhouette of Batman. Remember to carry a camera — digital, film, cell-phone, or video — on your person at all time.
As Gotham City has learned, you can never know when Batman will decide to emerge from wherever he lurks between interventions.
We’ll post the best ones here on GCN. So get your flashlights out and start circling the block, because Batman is out there — you just have to find him.
Thanks Bruce and Keith!
