Countless Americans and Harvey Dent believers should have received an update this afternoon from the fictional politician himself. As we reported last week, the Harvey Dentmobile has been traveling to cities across the country, gathering supporters and holding impromptu rallies. Today, the Dent camp released the following statement via email:
Hello, Dent Believers!
It’s been great to see the response from all of you! We knew that citizens of Gotham would rally behind Harvey Dent and you have! (It was inspiring to see some of you on TV!) Gotham citizens have come out to meet the Dentmobiles, many of them using the Dentmobiles as an opportunity to meet up with other Harvey Dent supporters in their neighborhoods and build this grassroots campaign.
The momentum is building!
There have been sporadic reports of rallies being broken up by police, which is disturbing. Does it indicate a bias on the part of the men in blue? A backlash against Harvey Dent because of his campaign to stop corruption?
Harvey Dent is expected to make his decision whether to run for Gotham District Attorney within days, and seeing all of you out there with your signs and banners can only tell him that Gotham needs him! Gotham is asking for change! That we believe in Harvey Dent!
Spread the word. Make an impression! And don’t forget to check out the latest submissions at http://www.ibelieveinharveydent.com/youinaction.aspx . We’ve been told that Mr. Dent may be close to making a decision – so your efforts can make a difference!
Finally, don’t forget to check http://www.ibelieveinharveydent.com/ontheroad.aspx to see if a Dentmobile is coming to a neighborhood near you this weekend.
Take Back Gotham!
Let’s break this down for a second — the part about police attempting to break up the rallies is true. There have been reports of confused law enforcement officers getting involved in select cities (these officers are obviously just not hip to viral marketing). As well, if you are reading carefully you might find a clue as to when the next bit of marketing, or potentially the next trailer will be released.
“Harvey Dent is expected to make his decision whether to run for Gotham District Attorney within days…”
What does this statement mean? It could be possible that a new trailer will be hitting the web, but I doubt it. Chances are that we should see an update on IBelieveinHarveyDent.com, so if you are a geek like me — stay tuned.
The Dark Knight hits theaters on July 18th. We expect to see at least one more full trailer, which will most likely feature more Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), sometime between now and the end of May.
