…because clearly, we don’t have enough. Can you hear the screams? Those are the fangirl screams of joy mixed in with the hater’s screams of frustration. Onwards…
So it looks as if the already massive Twilight franchise is spreading to the interwebs. Producers Summit Entertainment says it has reached an agreement with website Habbo to feature products and games in its virtual world. Habbo says it is “the largest virtual world for teenagers” and has teamed with Summit in an exclusive partnership to feature games promoting the Twilight films and Twilight-branded goods, which is awesome news for Twilight fans. This deal is set to begin November 20, to go along with the release of the second Twilight film, New Moon.
Habbo has about 13 million registered users in 31 countries, which means lots of potential customers to buy their Twilight themed furniture and an assortment of other Twilight themed accessories. So now you can hit play to the Twilight movie soundtrack, put on your Edward shirt, Jacob themed necklace and Bella’s heart bracelet, then you can jump on your bed and lay on your Twilight printed comforter and hug your Edward pillow, while you stare at the Twilight cast posters on your wall, which is hanging above your brand new Twilight chair, which is on top of your Twilight rug. THEN you can get on your laptop (covered in Twilight stickers, of course) and go and play some Twilight games, then after you are all played-out you can go to your favorite Twilight website and buy the third or fourth edition of the same exact Twilight book you already own, but this edition will have a picture of the cast on it, or maybe it will be a special edition that will come with a Bella and Edward poster and some rub on Twilight tattoos (that way you can have a sweet Jacob Black tramp stamp). After all of that you can head to school donning your Twilight backpack, sit in class writing with your “I Love Edward” printed pencil on your notebook which is plastered with Bella’s face… Ok ok, I think we all get the idea.
Anyway, Habbo’s new virtual world will allow users to interact with other Twilight fans, and include creating Twi-branded rooms, virtual items, activities and polls, the release said.
So Twilight fans rejoice, there is even more to come. Twilight haters, well you can …do nothing, Twilight and its fans will be around for a while and will be everywhere… like Resident Evil and the zombies…but not as cool and without the option of apocalypse to escape.
