The Passion of Mad Max (and, of course, spammers)

Following olethros pointing us at a Wired article explaining that they're really just trying to raise their google profile, it occurred to me that we could perhaps googlebomb them back. What I'm suggesting is that anyone they've spammed could add a link or three connecting Mel-Gibson/Jesus-film/The-Passion/whatever to the IMDB page on Pasolini's "The Gospel According To St Matthew". After all, if people want a literal version of the New Testament, then what's that harm in pointing them at a better one?

Or maybe it would just be childish. What do people think?
  • Current Mood: Quizzical
  • Current Music: Machine-Wash : "Programme 4"
I think this idea has some merit...

(Now if you wanted to be childish, you could link it to the imdb entry for Life of Brian... ;-)
what is childish about that. IKt is probably far more sensible material (and I mean that not tounge in cheek).
I like your icon (user picture).

(you don't know me, nor is this a relevant post, I simply followed a few random links on google!)
I was going to suggest linking it to Mad Max could actually be quite funny, the Life of Brian suggestion is better.
Now this is freaky. This was mentioned in wierd_news today. Is this a coincidence or did we start this?

Python film to challenge Passion
Monty Python's film The Life of Brian is to return to US cinemas next month following the success of The Passion of the Christ.
The Biblical satire will be re-released in Los Angeles, New York and other US cities to mark its 25th anniversary.
Adverts will challenge Mel Gibson's blockbuster with the lines "Mel or Monty?", "The Passion or the Python?"
Distributor Rainbow said it hoped the film would "serve as an antidote to all the hysteria about Mel's movie".
The Life of Brian follows a Jewish character from Nazareth who is worshipped as the Messiah then crucified by Romans.
It was condemned as blasphemous before its original release, although Monty Python said it was intended as a spoof on Bible films and intolerance rather than Christianity.
The film could not be completed until former Beatle George Harrison stepped in to finance it after EMI Films withdrew, fearing it was too controversial.
Rainbow president Henry Jaglom said: "We decided this is an important time to re-release this film, to provide some counter-programming to The Passion."
He said the surviving members of the Monty Python comedy team "all agreed this was a good time" to bring back the film and would help promote it.
Mr Jaglom, whose partner John Goldstone produced the original film, said trailers for the comedy would start to appear in cinemas on Good Friday.
