Today, January 7, 2014 I received a package from FedEx. I wasn’t expecting anything and didn’t know what it was. In my true nature, I was ready to investigate another goodie someone sent to me. I walked inside after shutting the door on the delivery man as he was sending funny sounds to the dogs. I placed the rather large box on the table, read who it was from and then grabbed a box cutter. I sliced open the box, opened to see what was inside. It was another box, it was creepy, looked water stained and it was taped with red evidence tape along the top and another single brown tape with my name on it. I immediately pulled out the box, read the stickers and papers on the side of the box. It was an evidence box from Louisiana. I freaked the fuck out and hauled it outside. Shutting the door I started to panic. WTF is this! I was positive I just had a fan attack or someone was sending me a chopped off finger or something without telling me. I wondered if I pissed someone off and they were out for revenge. I went inside I googled the address on the box and it showed a map but it wasn’t anyplace recognizable. I figured it was a prank or hate mail. Scroll down for images.
I went back outside with a mask over my face this time, freaking out, I pulled the box out and took photos to send to Carl. On the side of the box it read: “darknessbecomesyou.com.” I was a bit more intrigued and really wanted to know what was inside. I went back onto the computer and found this site and it was an HBO site with Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, the title of the page is “True Detective.” and after a bit more investigation I decided to face it and find out was inside the box. I have to admit, I was honestly nervous about it and freaked out and still not sure it was actually part of this HBO series.
I grabbed gloves, my mask, jacket and went to the parking garage to explore. The rest is in the video. Let’s just say this, cleaver, wicked, and freaked the fuck out of me out and I am in awe at the brilliance of HBO marketing. Besides, now I have a bad ass strange object to add to my ever growing collection of the bizarre. I honestly am sold and can’t wait to watch this series now, the press kit says it all. Thanks HBO for the scare and I loved it! Well done!
