Harvey Dent's Dentmobile Schedule Released - Vote for Harvey Dent!
We've been excitedly following the latest viral campaign for The Dark Knight that focuses on Harvey Dent, who is running for District Attorney of Gotham City. After everyone received phone calls last Friday from Harvey, a new campaign website launched and a Dentmobile nationwide tour kicked off. A full schedule for the Dentmobile tour has been released (you can see it below) and some additional information has been uncovered, including the addition of another viral site that will eventually be hosting an actual election for Gotham's District Attorney (as far as we know). And as one final kicker, we received a box today (at our house in Austin!) featuring some special Harvey Dent swag and other goodies.
If you're curious to know what a Dentmobile actually is, a few have already showed up in some cities. Thanks to our friends at HollywoodChicago.com, we've posted a few photos below. They're basic white vans with Harvey Dent promo banners slapped on the side. They show up and start giving away Harvey Dent election swag like candy. If you live in any of the cities listed below, make sure you stop by and grab as much swag as possible. Spread the word about Harvey Dent!
If you submit your photo or video to the Harvey Dent site at ibelieveinharveydent.com, you'll actually be sent a voter registration card with a Gotham City voting precinct listed (see the small version of the map to the right below). Apparently in June they're going to be holding actual elections (are you f**king kidding me?!) that will take place on gothamelectionboard.com. This is frickin' awesome! The key though: you need to submit a photo on ibelieveinharveydent.com to get registered! The deadline is March 26th, so hurry up and submit if you haven't already! Apparently Dent is running against the fictional character Roger Garcetti in the election.
We also received a package today at the house we're renting in Austin, Texas for SXSW that contained a number of Harvey Dent promo goodies. I don't know how Harvey and his team found us in Austin, but I'll be damned. The package came from "I Believe in Harvey Dent" in Pasadena, CA. In it was a white folder for the Harvey Dent campaign that included a press release, four buttons, a shirt and a bunch of stickers - the same sort of things you'll pick up at a Dentmobile station. The press release is actually about Harvey Dent's grass roots campaign with the Dentmobiles, and doesn't even mention Warner Brothers. This viral marketing is really picking up again!
Listed below is the complete Dentmobile nationwide tour schedule. Please check for updates on the official On The Road website. If you live in Colorado Springs, we'll be at all of the locations on March 22nd (which also happens to be my birthday). If you're elsewhere, then make sure to get down there and support the one-and-only Harvey Dent for District Attorney!

i was at an LA one(santa monica) and got some of the swag. i didn't get as much swag as a bunch of other people cause i actually did my job and handed it out. but it's all good, i still got my shirt(even though it's and XL and i'm an L), two posters, two window stickers, a few bumper stickers, and a few regular stickers. i was bummed that they didn't have the four buttons. one last note, thre's another new site that came with the one you mentioned: http://www.gothamcityclerk.com/

I'm just wondering, did they always plan on doing a Dent based viral scheme? Or did they decide to change to this & drop the Joker one after Heath's death... ...Just curious...
jason_md2020 on Mar 16, 2008
yea, it was planned. but probably in a different way. some replanning was probably done. that would explain the long wait we had.
