Recently Nokia came by to show us the Nokia 6205, a relatively unremarkable flip phone available today from Verizon Wireless with a very obvious movie tie-in with the upcoming Batman flick, The Dark Knight. During the demo we heard a ringtone of the Joker, played by recently deceased Heath Ledger, and I squirmed a bit in my chair. I quipped, “What’s that, the beyond-the-grave ringtone?” Yes, I know there’s a difference between the Joker and the actor who played him, but it still seemed a bit creepy. Then I caught today’s press release for the phone and was absolutely floored. Not only is Verizon pre-loading this clamshell with Ledger’s admittedly awesomely evil cackle (seriously, he makes Jack Nicholson sound like Barney the Dinosaur), the carrier is launching a contest that will give customers a chance to win The Joker’s “bag of cash” containing $10,000 using a Joker playing card with a code and a link to www.fightforgothamcity.com. Wow. Maybe I’m being a bit oversensitive here but somehow I don’t think Heath Ledger’s family and friends would find this phone and promotion in good taste. Think I’m overreacting here? Sound off in our poll.
