The Spider-Man Viral Brings You a Video Message From Oscorp Industries

Share

The viral campaign for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man has been playing out all day long in cities across the nation and has now just revealed a brand new video that features Rhys Ifans’ Dr. Curt Connors inviting ARG players to take place in an Oscorp Industries science program that focuses on reptile genetics. The company, it seems, is looking for interns and the application process appears set to begin on Monday, May 14th. Check out the video in the player below!

As we mentioned earlier this week, the Twitter account @scaleseeker coordinated a nationwide effort to track sightings of the film’s villain, The Lizard. Throughout today, coordinates were revealed that led players to locations in Los Angeles, NYC, Atlanta, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Austin, Tampa, Minneaplis and New Orleans where packages were discovered containing Connor’s shredded labcoat, an Oscorp ID badge and scientific samples of reptilian skin. By unscrambling the letters listed on each sample, the words “animal dynamics lab” lead players to the new site. Where the campaign will lead now is anybody’s guess, but check back for updates as they become available.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field, The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters on July 3rd.
