‘No Hope Left’ Viral Ads Tied To Capcom

There are billboards in places that appear to be vandalized by ripping of the original ads on the board and then spray painted over by an ominous message that simply reads ‘No Hope Left’ with the O in no being stylized like a biohazard symbol. What does it mean? Who is behind it?

What it means is still up in the air, but who’s behind it is not thanks to The Sixth Axis who went snooping — in a good way. TSA checked out an ad up close to look for logos or URLs with no luck but they did take note of who owned the billboard. One call with the location of the ad and it turns out Capcom is behind it. It was that simple.

Now to look at the clues. Capcom took out the ad. The ad has a biohazard symbol in it. Capcom makes a game in Japan called ‘Biohazard’ which is called ‘Resident Evil’ in the U.S.. New Mega Man? Just kidding, probably Resident Evil.

Check out the No Hope Left website for what’s happenin’ man.

    Reminds me of the Inserted Evil viral add campaign that they have for Operation Raccoon City.

    Yes, more no moving and shooting while hordes of the slowest moving hordes of zombies in the world come to not eat your brains. Sweet.

    Not a fan of when companies do things like this. Might attract some peoples interest, but not mine. Seen it all before.
