To promote the upcoming seventh season of “Dexter,” Showtime is rolling out a series of meme-inspired ads at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con.
“The you-either-get-it-or-you-don’t ad style uses a classic blood-spattered smiling Dex with jaunty messages reminiscent of fan-created online memes often posted in blogs and comment boards. In fact, Showtime will have memes promoting several shows at the San Diego fan event,” says EW. “The network’s ads will be on shuttle buses, lobby banners and the badge lanyards worn by every SDCC attendee.
“The “Dexter” panel is Thursday, July 12 at 6 p.m. and includes a video with the first two minutes of “Dexter”‘s next season that picks up right after last season’s cliffhanger, plus the debut of the “Homeland” second season trailer.
Easily the funniest of the five memes exclaims, “Sister walked in. Caught me at a bad moment.”
