Safetytown Follows Life of Phished Family

safetytown_dad.jpg

To promote its line of online security products, Symantec has launched Safetytown. Created by Night Agency, the site contains "choose your own adventure" videos that follow the travels of a father who has been informed a mysterious charge has been made to his credit card. Full of overwrought melodrama and really bad fashion, the first installment shows the dad receiving a call from his credit card company informing him a charge was made to his card from a sporting goods store in Arkansas. Dressed only in his bathroom and a winter coat, the dad sets off to find out who used his card while his wife and child tearfully watch him leave.

The site's got other goodies such as wallpapers, music, the dad's bathrobe and a trial download of Norton Internet Security. If memory serves, this is the first time Symantec has done anything outside of the basic technology sell in its marketing.
