COBRA Commander Starts Viral Recruiting for 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'
The execs at Paramount Pictures are hoping fans will forgive the long delay of G.I. Joe: Retaliation and turn out in full force when the movie finally hits theaters on March 29th, 2013, and it looks like the viral marketing for the movie is finally getting underway. The villainous organization COBRA, who take over the White House in the upcoming sequel, is recruiting new members at CobraSpecialForces.com, and they've released a new video that utilizes the voiceover talents of Keith David, the actor who does VOs for the real US Navy commercials. Check out the video below, and see if you have what it takes to join COBRA's forces.

Nice going: this totally feels like a real commercial until the reveal of the COBRA patch at the very end. At CobraSpecialForces.com, you can connect through Facebook, download COBRA-themed social media icons, and take a few tests to see if you're fit to join the ranks of the Joes' biggest rivals. But the coolest part is that the COBRAs are masters of disguise, and they'll be infiltrating a ton of real events taking place across the country like concerts, marathons, WWE wrestling matches, a triathalon on Alcatraz Island, and much more. There, you'll be able to meet up with other COBRA members and get more information. Will you sign up?
