Devotees of HBO's "True Blood" will probably already have discovered that those wacky true believers at the Fellowship of the Sun have their own Web site.
Need Sarah Newlin's advice on how to "detoxify your marriage" or a prayer to help you "fight the perversions of life at every turn" (Including, of course, the allure those pesky blood-suckers)?
You'll find all that at www.fellowshipofthesun.org - and more.
This week HBO (a CNN sister network) rolled out another twist on the site - part of a viral marketing campaign that it's been using for the show.
The church group's site has been "hacked." Using the login and password of Luke - Jason Stackhouse's rival at the Light of Day Institute - you can get a peek behind the thin veneer of goodness and light at the anti-vampire group's camp for fang haters.
In addition to "The Lukenator's" rambling and poorly-spelled musings, you'll find a recruitment video for Soldiers of the Sun - complete with barking drill sergeant and images of masked recruits tackling a dummy with a Dracula mask on - and an instructional video on how to load shotgun shells with wood for a new twist on the old stake-through-the-heart routine.
As the preview for Sunday night's episode suggests - along with the Dallas bushwhack attempt in last week's show - it looks like the group's rhetoric has already become action.
Fantastic beat ! I would like to apprentice at the same time as you amend your web site, how could i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a applicable deal. I were a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright transparent idea
this was a very good post, keep up the great work.
I love this show. I've been out of town for 2 weeks visiting family and no one has HBO!! I can't wait to get home!!
Love the show! After each episode you think they can't possibly trip you out any more, and they do!
Wait a minute! I thought the Fellowship of the Sun's headquarters were on C Street in Washington? Oops, my mistake. Sometimes art DOES imitate life!
OK, for the record I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SHOW! Now that I have that out of the way, I can't believe there is a FoS site, that is too funny.
Whoa. First of all, what a great job the creators did of mimicing the rhetoric of some fringe (and not so fringe) groups!
Second, I thought it was hilarious that "the Lucinator" was so judgemental of "Vampire Hunter Jamboree"... ah, the levels of irony make me warm and fuzzy inside.
Third, although the youtube video of bike stunts was intriguing, I'm not sure what it has to do with vampire hunting. But hey, what the hell?
This is great!!!!
