The Joker Believes in Harvey Dent

Spoilers Ahead. If you haven’t seen The Dark Knight already do not read or look below.

I, like many people, didn’t notice a certain something when The Joker dressed up like a female nurse in The Dark Knight the first time I saw the film. It’s a sticker. A I Believe in Harvey Dent sticker on the right side of The Joker’s uniform.

Even people that did notice the sticker probably didn’t know the significance of it because they were unaware of most if not all of the online marketing for The Dark Knight. Part of that marketing stratagem was the faux I Believe in Harvey Dent campaign. (These pictures were sent to me.)

I personally think it’s hilarious that The Joker would show “support” to a man whose future he detonated and twisted. Were you one of the people that noticed the sticker and knew what it represented?

    I thought some of the viral marketing sites used to promote Batman were excellant. Reminds me of the many, many viral sites they used for Doctor Who and Torchwood (unit.org.uk) and I’m really looking forward to the viral sites for the new Star Trek movie (already have ncc-1701.com which has clues and secrets providing you stare at it long enough).

    The viral marketing for Batman was excellent. Thanks for the heads up on the Star Trek viral marketing. I had no idea they had even begun that yet.

    I loved seeing the Joker’s Harvey Dent sticker in the film. All their viral marketing was exciting. I will be checking out the Star Trek stuff ASAP.
