Take This Lollipop: personalized scary movie generated by your Facebook account

Take This Lollipop is an entertaining, interactive viral marketing site for a brilliantly “executed” upcoming horror film that also smartly addresses issues of privacy, or the lack thereof in our modern, digital era where pretty much every new website or app tries to gain access to our personal information stored in Facebook. Or as The Next Web writes, it “plays on the fact that many people underestimate the power of social networks and the information that can be obtained from them.” This marketing website uses the same ubiquitous Facebook Connect API and uses the information on your Facebook profile, such as tagged photos of yourself and your friends, and creates a very spooky and suspenseful short film involving a deranged man who gets increasingly agitated the more he “looks” at your Facebook profile. See what it’s like to have your own scary stalker!
