Leak Of The Day: Nine Inch Nails Keeps Blowing Up

By: Brian Raftery / February 26, 2007

therez.jpgCulture Bully and Deaf Indie Elephants point us in the direction of “In This Twilight,” yet another intentionally-unintentional “leak” from Nine Inch Nails’ upcoming Year Zero album. The new song is accompanied by an apocalyptic website that imagines last night’s a future Oscar ceremony as a scene of utter chaos and misery–and not just because Little Miss Sunshine won Best Original Screenplay of Norbit II winning Best Picture:

IN MEMORIAM…

The first dirty bomb went off at the Kodak Theater during the 81st Annual Academy Awards Ceremony. Over the next half hour, eight more dirty bombs deployed by Islamic extremists spread a pall of radioactive dust across Greater LA. Three days later a Presidential order required the entire city to be evacuated.

The City of Angels had become a city of ghosts.

This site is dedicated to the people of Los Angeles who lost their homes, their loved ones, and their lives in Hollywood’s last fade to black.

If this is indeed an official promotional site, we’re not sure what’s offensive: Invoking religious war as a marketing gimmick, or the sub-hack-level “last fade to black” kicker.
