It's about advertising the brand as much as it is the social media. That said, I think this is kinda cool. Stupid, but cool.

It's just so strange advertising a youtube channel on TV. I guess they have nothing else to advertise at the moment... beyond that cartoon they don't give a shit about though.

I think it just goes to show how much of a success this has been. It injected lifeblood in to the series and I think more exposure is definitely a cool and good thing.

When Aaron was doing this interview for SXSW prior to the event, the following exchange occured:

Quote

Q: Will there be any other surprises for fans who see you this year?

Aaron: There might be! But they'll need a special password to get it. I wonder if any of our fans have started decoding the messages in the posts? It won't be easy, but the first rule I try to stick to when creating cryptic teaser campaigns is: “Never underestimate the internet.”
Oh, and the second rule is: “Never talk about cryptic teaser campaigns”, but I think I just broke that one.

Did we ever find out what this was hinting at? I'm no good at being an internet detective.

I suspect this'll be something they do going forward from SXSW.

Okay, so if there's really hints, do the equations have something to do with it? Now I'm just traumatized about it.
