A YouTube video channels the classic game Where’s Waldo to promote the show’s season premiere. The series of Where’s Dexter videos imbed Michael C. Hall’s serial killer character in crowded situations. Viewers are challenged to scan locales such as a busy airport to find the inconspicuously dressed Dexter, as in no goofy Waldo outfit. That s part of what makes this work so well, where the video gets across the killer among us premise of the show and gives the game an element of suspense.
Since [a]listdaily checked out the video and posted this entry, views have nearly doubled over a 24 hour period to more than 45,000 views. Showtime even has a Dexter iPhone game app tied into their multi-prong promo for the show.
