This is definitely the week for Bill Compton at HBO marketing headquarters. First the Waiting Sucks video snippet shows him fighting off two persons/vampires and now this week’s viral poster is of him on a bottle of blood.
When I saw this poster I chuckled for a couple of reasons. First, it takes me back to the 1970’s when there were missing children’s faces on milk cartons. I remember it from first hand experience and because of my recognition of the label the first thing I did was chuckle because I saw the label say, ” Have you seen this MAN- not vampire but MAN?”. Why would HBO put man on the bottle and not vampire, it is a bottle of blood after all? Unless they are trying a new politically correct way of referring to all creatures whether human or vampire as men so as to show equality?
How about the fact that it’s on a bottle of blood like the milk carton? Are they saying that the vamps are really looking and missing Bill Compton? Who would have paid for this to be done? Someone powerful like Eric the Sheriff or Queen Sophie?
And the fact that it is in the image of where a child’s face was does this a clue as to either how Bill is viewed by the seeker- maybe as a child or childer? Is it is Queen looking for him or his sire Lorena?
Maybe I am just reading a lot into this or maybe it’s just fun to guess.
True Blood Season 3 will be coming to Lexington fans on Sunday June 13th at 8:00pm.
