Grand Theft Auto IV Wanted Posters Popping Up In Brooklyn

Quote:

Rockstar Games has begun the "viral" portion of its Grand Theft Auto IV marketing campaign, posting convincing wanted posters on Brooklyn-area telephone poles featuring Niko Bellic, the game's protagonist. The poster warns that Bellic is "wanted for questioning in connection with a shooting at a nightclub in the Hove Beach area of Broker" explaining that the perpetrator is of eastern European descent "which narrows it down to about 95% of the Hove Beach community." The poster jokes "Even we can't arrest that many foreigners" and suggests that Bellic be shot on sight.

The GTA IV poster also features an e-mail address and web site for the Liberty City Police Department. While the site isn't currently up, the e-mail auto responder is. The response is after the jump.


Keepin' it classy, as expected, Rockstar.

Thanks for the photo, Chris!

Gotta love R*s innovative way of advertising.
Here's the other Niko poster previously seen in Belgium.

I guess this means that those wanted posters in Belgium are now 'official'.

Nah the one's in Belgium were mistakenly put up early, before they were even finalized, advertising the old release date, which is probably why it was an accident anyway.

...and I guess a wanted poster would catch peoples attention, just like a 40 metre mural on the side of a building.

If only it was Logistical to get a Plane full of posters and fly it over a city like in Vice, That, in real life would rock, but, the pain-in-the-asses at H n' S would never allow it. Kill Joys!

That would be fun and it is a pity it's not allowed.

@zim: why the well would you not? It's great!
