Another Kevin Smith Red State Poster Helps the World

The next Red State movie poster has been released through a Twitter auction held by film-maker Kevin Smith.  This time @PussyEatingClub won the honours (be careful forwarding this to your mom), though some technical confusion in the bidding resulted in @xcinc winning the next exclusive release.

Be sure to tell people WHY the poster was released: becausehttp://pussyeatingclub.com/ bid $1700 to The Kenny Gordon Foundationhttp://www.kennygordonfoundation.com/in less than 30 minutes.

Here is the poster.  Click through for full size and the details of the auction.

Once again, kudos to Kevin Smith for his approach.  One one hand, people in need are helped.  On the other hand a willing and deserving business gets some exposure.  On the next hand (aliens?) the movie gets some viral marketing.  On the fourth hand the movie gets promoted.  On the fifth hand I get something to post about.  On the sixth hand Twitter followers get something fun to follow.  On the seventh hand we hopefully learn something about marketing in the digital age and the lack of need for reliance on “the institution”.  On the eighth hand, an octopus.
