Aah-ooh! Werewolves of Manhattan

Posted on


Beast_lI was on a NYC street corner, calmly sipping my diet ginger ale, when five werewolves attacked me. They flailed their grey, hairy limbs and circled around me, creating what looked like a mix between an anti-war rally and the Michael Jackson “Thriller” video. You’ve all been warned to stay away from strangers, but, tell me, what is the protocol when dealing with strange werewolves? Though they appeared to be going in for the kill, I soon realized the pack was motioning towards something behind me. I turned to see a double-decker tour bus, proclaiming in an obnoxiously ghoulish font: Nature of the Beast. I was not about to be ripped to pieces by mythological creatures, I had stumbled into something far more terrifying. An ABC Family Original Film promotion. (Cue bloodcurdling scream.)

If ABC Family thinks I’m going to watch Nature of the Beast (with Eddie Kaye Thomas, pictured) just because a few werewolves jumped me while I was trying to enjoy my lunch break, rubbed themselves up against me, and let me see their tour bus, then ABC Family clearly does not understand the nature of their audience.

So, PopWatchers, seen any ridiculous promotional stunts lately? What gets you interested in a new show? Maybe being violated by werewolves works for you. If so, keep that to yourself.
