New True Blood advertisement airing and "make your own HBO "

This is really strange huh ? what do you guys think ?

Make your own HBO

From adweek
Brand: HBO Videos
Agency: BBDO Worldwide
Review Date: December 07, 2010

This holiday season, HBO reminds fans of its popular series True Blood, Entourage and Eastbound and Down that nothing beats the original. A new campaign from BBDO, New York, pushes boxed DVD sets of the shows with humorous spots showing people re-creating their favorite scenes for fans. One guy, trying to impress his True Blood-loving girlfriend, builds an elaborate smoke-spouting rig he uses to enact a tense love triangle exchange among Sookie and her two vampire suitors. His effort is met with a dumbfounded look from the girlfriend, who is probably thinking her boyfriend has some hidden demons of his own. “This holiday leave the HBO to us,” reads the onscreen copy. True, a cardboard cutout of Eric Northman just doesn’t get the blood pumping quite the same way, but the amateur theater could be funnier. Online, at www.makeyourownHBO, visitors can create and share their own clips using augmented reality technology that controls virtual sock puppets.-

"True Blood," which has been airing in most other major territories for some time, was created by Alan Ball and is based on "The Southern Vampire Mysteries" book series by Charlaine Harris.

Expect More TrueBlood comics and they will be co-authored by Michael " Reverend Steve Newlin" McMillian

Today publisher IDW announced plans to bring fan favorite "TRUEBLOOD" back for more monthly installments into the coming year with a second story arc in the series based upon the award winning HBO television show and popular New York Times best selling novels by Charlaine Harris. Below you can get all the details on the series thus far as well as some advance cover art.

"Actor Michael McMillian, who plays Fellowship of the Sun leader Reverend Steve Newlin, will co-author the new six-issue arc with Marc Andreyko.

"Co-writing the True Blood comic is a dream come true both as a performer on the show and as longtime comic fan. It's a real privilege to build on the rapidly growing True Blood mythology," McMillian said.

Here's how IDW describes the next arc:

"Jessica is exposed to contaminated bottles of Tru Blood, causing the lovely vampire to go berserk. It's up to Sookie, Bill and the others to figure out who (or what) is behind the bad Blood."

In addition to Jessica, several other Bon Temp residents are making their comic book debut including Hoyt, Terry, Arlene and Steve Newlin.

Joe Corroney provides the art, with covers by J. Scott Campbell.

"Marc and I are working hard to make sure the series feels like an extension of the show," McMillan said. "True Blood fans should expect lots of action, gore, sex, humor and of course, awesome cliffhangers!"
