New Dark Knight Viral Video Could Not Possibly Be More Boring

It’s easy to imagine the boardroom meeting at Warner Brothers at which the idea for this new “viral” video for The Dark Knightcame about. Someone said “We need a viral video to promote our movie” and someone else said “let’s get Maggie Gyllenhaal to do a press conference as Rachel Dawes endorsing Harvey Dent for no apparent reason, and let’s make sure it’s as dull, awkward, and not even believable as a real press conference, as possible.” And someone above that person said “Done, but make sure it tells us nothing about the actual movie, and do it in just one take!”

Also, what’s with that accent?
