Dr Uba’s Clinic [Feb. 24th, 2011|09:39 am]

Someone just pointed me at this.  It comes with the comment

This just reached my desk. Flyer being handed out in Fourways

Dunno if I believe a word of it — although the cited website works

DR Uba: The doctor who will never hide his face to the public of change his name

– but if it’s fake, it’s very funny in a horrible ohgodno kind of way.

EDITED TO ADD: mystery solved. It’s apparently marketing for a film called NIGHT DRIVE. Fun piece of work.

EDITED TO ADD: and then @nic0 on twitter showed me this:

Apparently the guy got stabbed in the end.

SECOND EDIT TO ADD; I’m down the rabbit hole now, Peter Gasston just told me that he used to be called, I shit you not, Unbeatable Atif:

I guess it's viral marketing for Night Drive?

Yep. Clicking on the buttons brings up a popup for it.

Yep, a quick Google search confirms this is the case.

Hmm. The pictures and the trailer don't seem to go together. The pictures are for something I imagine is destined to be a cult classic, but the trailer looks like Yet Another Horror Flick.

I have a small collection of flyers for similarly "gifted" men and women - I used to get one of them through the door about once every six months or so, and hung on to them out of some sort of strange fascination. They all advertise slightly different services, but the general style of the things is pretty consistent.
