We understand that Fox wants the movie to be successful, but cyber-terrorism is taking things too far.
All the comic book media sites are reporting that Fox, in an attempt to promote the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past movie, has been spreading some kind of computer virus, codenamed "Sentinel." Users visiting the Trask Industries website are apparently infected with the virus, which then spreads throughout any computers on the user's network. The Outhouse is a big fan of the X-Men movies that didn't suck, so we're as excited as anyone to see the franchise come together in this latest installment, but we have to say that spreading a computer virus is taking things a bit too far. We use a Mac, so we haven't been infected by the virus ourselves, but we've dealt with viruses before and they are serious business. Fox, The Outhouse wants you to know that we're not going to stand for...
What? Oh, really? Oh. That makes sense. Yeah, I do sound like an idiot now that you explain it like that. Right. Yeah, my bad.
Dear readers, once again, Ol' Jude Terror has to apologize. It seems that it's not a virus Fox has been spreading, but a viral video. That's completely different. The video is a mock commercial for Trask Industries, which gives us an ominous look at the giant mutant-hunting robots, the Sentinels. Check it out below:
