Marley and Me – The Dog Dies…Or Does It?

The Movie Blog reports on a “viral marketing” campaign around Marley and Me. They received an “email from a girl named ‘Stephanie’ with the images you see below, trying to pass herself off as just some random person sending out a news tips (clearly she’s with the studio or marketing company working for the studio).

I thought the video was great, so I immediately emailed it to 4 friends who would probably agree with me. Next, I tried to find more videos of Vincent Dooly.  The most logical place to first look would be under the video in the response section. The video was a response to “Vincent and the Super Suit”. This is the video. Continue reading
