Arts The Hills Have Foxes
So, for all you kids out there wondering what possible impact conservative Rupert Murdoch could have on punkrock-powered MySpace, I give you this press release:
FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES
A UNIT OF FOX FILMED ENTERTAINMENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE HILLS HAVE THEIR EYES ON MYSPACE.COM
LOS ANGELES, CA March 8, 2006 —- Beginning 12:01 am, tomorrow, Fox Searchlight Pictures will participate in an unprecedented promotion taking over all advertising on MySpace.com, for the new movie, THE HILLS HAVE EYES. MySpace.com, the leading social networking and lifestyle portal, is the most widely viewed and highly regarded site of its kind boasting more than 23.1 billion page views and 35.5 million unique users in January alone.* The purchase allows the film unparalleled advertising exposure and helps connect site users to the remake of a horror classic.
Rupert Murdoch owns Fox and Rupert Murdoch owns MySpace and now Fox and MySpace are in bed together! Isn’t that nice?
The ads are really shaky and annoying, by the way.
