Josh, why not instead of putting up all these posts about how awesome Skyfall is, you just post a video where you're burning the American flag with the words [frick] AMERICA across the screen. Cause that's basically what I'm seeing whenever I read these things. Two weeks, [frick]ing ridiculous, I wouldn't be surprised if half of the target audience has already seen it online. It would serve Sony right.
