When is a first strike not a first strike?
When it's Anticipatory Retaliation.

No, seriously. I see a lot fairly baffling stuff on the internet, but this one I just don't get.

Watch it and tell me.

Although, now that I think of it, if I can just manage to get it broadcast on Al-Jazeera without that little note at the bottom, it might cut pretty heavily into the pro-Bin Laden demographic.

I didn't see the actual tape (having turned off plug-ins, javascript, etc), but the warning sounds based on the movie, "The Ring". This is a US remake of a Japanese film, in which people are dying mysteriously, revolving around a strange videotape.

I believe most of it is from a film made by Salvador Dali in the 20s -- as Mr. Crawford mentioned, the soundtrack and the end image of the old well (perhaps some of the imagery as well) are from The Ring. Interesting. I must pass it along. Or I will die.

First comment just about hit it. It's a "viral" marketing ploy for the sequel to "The Ring", called, surprisingly enough, "Ring 2".

Since the first movie did nothing for me, I don't believe that I'll make any effort to see the second, although I do know a woman who can't wait, since she and her daughter were both scared quite thoroughly by the first movie.

I also don't believe that I'm going to croak in
the next 7 days.
