[edit] Connections

  • The site also contains references to real-life current events.
    • The death of "Nick Adelaide" seems to be a reference to the death of Australian actor Heath Ledger who played The Joker.
    • The mention of a political aide calling the opposition "a monster" is a reference to the 2008 US presidential elections, where an aide in Barack Obama's camp referred to Hilary Clinton as "a monster."
    • The headline of the porcupine (although it is a photo of a hedgehog) being used as a weapon is a reference to an incident in New Zealand where a 27-year-old man attacked a 15-year-old boy by throwing a hedgehog at him.

[edit] Media

  • Several YouTube videos were referenced in the April 6 update, linking the page to http://www.youtube.com/user/ClownsAgainstDent . This YouTube channel is not in-game, but fan-made videos well-done enough that they were linked to as part of the official ARG.
