Brooklyn's Next Viral Marketing Campaign

An intriguing mash-up of short story, video game, and street art is currently unfolding on the sidewalks of San Francisco's Mission District. "She Loves the Moon" is a two-person romance told through sidewalk stencils like the one above; players can start at two different locations and follow the story, making choices along the way that determine whether the romance has a happy or unhappy ending. We think this idea is adorable, and we are convinced of two things:

1. Someone will try this in Brooklyn in less than a week.

2. Some movie studio will co-opt this idea to virally market their crap romantic comedy in less than a year.
