The Darkness is Coming Thursday September 18, 2008

Yesterday I was sprinting across the downtown core on a way to a meeting. Near the Eaton’s Square/TD Shopping Mall I saw a small congregation of black clothed protesters..

In a typical pessimistic way I thought – Oh God! not another lackluster Calgary Protest! But as I got closer and closer I started to notice something different … It seemed that every one was dressed in black and they were also carrying signs… Signs painted with the slogan:

The DARKNESS IS COMING

And they were handing out paper masks.

Paper masks of the Heroes villian Sylar.

Sorry, but has to be the BEST Street Marketing Campaign I’ve seen in this city in years.
