And speaking of pretty girls lapping blood, the TV powers-that-be used the same charming motif for the teaser poster for Alan Ball's upcoming HBO show True Blood, which is based off of Wordcandy favorite Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series:
Hmm. Effective, I suppose (although, if that's supposed to be the heroine, totally inaccurate, seeing as she's not a vampire). I'm much more impressed by the banner ads that apparently popped up all over Comic-Con advertising "Tru-Blood", the "synthetic blood nourishment beverage" that Harris's vampires drink:
Doesn't that look great? They're doing an awesome job with promotion for this show--there's a blog and a vampire dating service, too.
