Dexter Take Three

I know Dexter fans are chomping at the bit, (gotta love dark humor) for season three to begin. It starts in a month, and already the marketing campaign has begun. The hype machine is going into overdrive already and of course Janine and I are eating it up.

I have to admit the marketing people for Dexter have done a great job with producing these viral campaigns. A lot of people are going to see this ad, but most will see it like this, in a blog post, or in a Twitter post. 

For season two, they produced a do it yourself video that allowed people to input their names into a fake video news story. Now, they release an ad that looks like a cover of the often hip often geek Wired Magazine.

The show has really hit a cult status. I hear a lot of people talking about it on the web and I'm just excited that I picked another winner. If you have not seen Dexter, and you're into the intense suspenseful, dramatic and violent stuff, then I highly, highly recommend picking up the first two seasons and getting up to speed. And then enjoy season three with The Lewis Show.
