On December 3, participants were sent a new email from humanresources@whysoserious.com:

Heads up, clown! Tomorrow means that there's one last shifty step left in the interview process:


By shifting each letter one key to the right on a QWERTY keyboard, "steprightup" was spelled, leading to http://whysoserious.com/steprightup/

The webpage features a stuffed monkey with an exposed stomach, as well as a timer which counts down to 12pm EST on December 4.

December 4

When the timer finished, a stuffed-animal carnival game was revealed when the page was refreshed. A note advised participants to search out an object at 6 different addresses around the country, while warning them not to call the locations.

Step right up folks, to the main event!

I've left a very special treat at each location below, held under the name Robin Banks. Only one per location, first come, first served. Keep a low profile.

Do NOT call these locations, that's not part of the plan. Time for what you've been waiting for. 1-2-3 Go!

All of the locations are apparently bakeries. Once there, participants are to pick up a package left under the name "Robin Banks."

Participants who disobeyed the Joker and called the locations are told by the bakery employees that the package includes a phone number, but that they cannot divulge the number unless the package is picked up in person. It presumed that when the numbers are called in, bears will disappear.

If the website visitor clicks on the mallet, and then clicks on the lit bulb, it loads the image of the address that was fulfilled.

Additional bears are appearing in the game as others disappear. Since there is presumably one light per bear, it can be expected that there will be 22 bears total. Wiki readers are advised to go directly to the page for up-to-the-second progress, as this game is current and moving very fast.

Eventually, all the cakes were located, and a link was found to whysoserious.com/steprightup/pairofjokers, which had links to the teaser poster for The Dark Knight and free IMAX tickets for 5 theaters.

The Package

The package is a cake with a phone number on it. By calling the number, a phone inside the cake will ring. After digging into the cake, the participant will find an evidence bag with a cell phone, Joker card, cell phone charger, and a note:

Wow, you really took the cake! Now, put the icing on it: call (phone number) immediately from this phone and THIS PHONE ONLY. Do NOT give this phone number to anyone else.

Let's hope your fellow goons come through as well as you. Once all the layers are in place, you'll all get your just desserts. I'm a man of my word

Upon calling the number on the note, an audio message follows:

Thank you for calling clowns for hire! Now we know who you are!

A text message is also received from humanresources@whysoserious.com:

Good work, clown! Keep this phone charged and with you at all times. Don't call me, I'll call you...eventually.
