This is Epth Nation

Epth is a state of mind, not a place. Reading this will give you a virtual drivers license in that state, but you'll still need to be 21 to purchase alcohol. And you can't get any there anyway, so stop asking.

The LOST Experience: One Big Sprite Commercial?

It's bad enough we all have to buy the book Bad Twin to see what it has to say about the Hanso Foundation, now we have to deal with this Sprite crap, too? A link at the in-game Hanso Foundation takes you to, which is just a dharma-looking Flash movie with the word "obey" floating in the middle and intermittent clicking noises. is owned by Sprite.
Sprite's motto? Obey your thirst.
Remember lymon? That was a Sprite slogan.
Is LOST trying to use some corporate Hanso connection to a soft drink to both demonstrate Hanso's evil powers AND advertise for that soft drink?
Am I starting to get the feeling that this so-called "Lost Experience" is going to be 1 part mystery, 10 parts advertising for real-life products?

Anyway, you click some tv's on the sublymonal site and you go back to the Hanso Foundation web site with a code you can use to do some stuff. This is all very disturbing.

I only support this if they work Jooky into it.

    I gotta say, both these comments get an A+ from me. When I heard about this, I thought of A Christmas Story right away, and how deeply angry a lot of obsessive LOST fans would be if this internet "game" yielded something like that.

    And Jooky might be the greatest Ad campaign ever. It was pink, for pete's sake.
