ABC's 'Lost' Launches Yet Another Alternate Reality Game

oeanic_airlines_lost.jpg

There is just way too much complexity to ABC's Lost and everything that goes with it to actually attempt to describe and explain everything. However, while trolling Flickr, we found some images of billboards for Oceanic Airlines, the name of the airline that is featured in the series. A new alternate reality game, Find815, has been launched which features videos of a person, Sam Thomas, who is supposed to work for Oceanic and whose girlfriend Sonya was one of the flight attendants.

You have to be really obsessive about the show to like this sort of thing but we spent some time with it and found it to be quite interesting and comprehensive. So that you can all start where we did, here's the link to one of the billboard photos on Flickr. They are actual billboards which appear in seven American cities, Seoul, South Korea and Sydney Australia. Here's a link to a very minimal press release. And here's a link to a blog that appears to be tracking or is part of the campaign itself. Have fun.

The number at the bottom of the Oceanic press release is a phone number at Disney/ABC in Burbank, CA-- a press relations office.
