I totally got tricked by those Scarlet ads!

Please tell me I'm not the only one that fell for this. Has anyone else seen those commercials for that Scarlet TV show? They had sort of a teaser campaign going and I thought it was some kind of new Buffy / Alias "girl power" kind of show. And I remember thinking it was weird that I would see the commercials on different networks but they wouldn't say what network the show was on or when it would premiere etc.

One day, the Scarlet TV show ads were all over TVguide.com (one of my fave sites for TV scoop) and I noticed a URL for the show's website: http://www.scarletseries.tv

If you go to the site, it looks sort of legit. Still not much scoop but I didn't give it much more thought.

And then today I see this: LG pushes Scarlet LCD HDTVs with completely unrelated commercial


If you go to the fake TV series site, there's a link in the bottom left, "Discover Scarlet's Secret" that takes you to the LG TV site.

Pretty clever, I must say. I'm not going to buy the fancy TV, but I now know the name!

I just saw one of those - thankfully it was after the sneaky commercials so it straight out said it was LG stuff. So weird. Guess they'll try anything these days!
