Live your own dream courtesy of Rekall in the new Total Recall interactive web experience

3 years agoby:

The original TOTAL RECALL made me wish there was an actual Rekall that would implant awesome memories, you know, without the violent spasms or need to murder a bunch of people and then pull a ball out of your nose. Ah, memories.

Well, the new TOTAL RECALL is making the memory implantation a reality via a viral site and a contest. If you visit Welcome To Rekall, there are nine choices you can make that will utilize your Facebook data (assuming you allow the site to access it) to create a presentation for your selected experience. It is a little goofy, but still cool. The contest is where the real reward is at.

Once you have completed your selected experience, you will have a chance to enter a contest with a prize specific to your Rekall choice.

 -   The Sports Anchor winner will spend the day at ESPN headquarters to get the full experience  of a day in studio, provided by ESPN

-       The Rock Star winner will hang with Green Day, attend a sound check and receive backstage access provided by Pandora

-       The Fashionista winner will meet Heidi Klum and her stylist in Los Angeles, sponsored by AOL

-       The Secret Agent winner will attend the Stiletto Spy School or the MI6 Academy, sponsored by Yahoo! Movies

-       The UFC Champion winner, sponsored by UFC, will train with pro fighters and sit octagonside with the trainer

-       The Celebrity winner will live like a celebrity in Los Angeles and attend a red carpet event, sponsored by Wonderwall

-       The DJ winner will receive DJ lessons from a high-profile DJ, sponsored by Complex

-       The Video Gamer winner will travel to Microsoft headquarters to meet a game developer and receive the chance to battle it out with a pro, sponsored by Microsoft

-       And the Millionaire winner will receive 1,000,000 Sony Rewards points, sponsored by Sony Rewards.  With Sony Rewards, members can get rewarded for doing the things they already love – like going to the movies, playing games, sharing and more. The points can be used to redeem for the latest Sony electronics, movies, music and games – and even once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 

Pretty damn cool! In addition to these prizes, there will be a Rekall booth at Comic Con where visitors will get a photo badge of their actual Rekall experience. Looks like Sony is pulling out all the stops for this one.

TOTAL RECALL opens in theaters August 3rd.

Extra Tidbit: I chose Secret Agent for my Rekall experience. I caught the double agent. I am so awesome.

I gotta admit, that's one of the cleverest marketing gimmicks for a movie.

Where is the "Bartender at a strip club" option? That would definitely be my pick
