Whoa, whoa—I know what you're thinking. But don't worry. Despite the disturbing image above, rest assured that this post is in no way, shape, or form related to Patrick Alan Coleman's fucked-up fetishes.

Rather, this is some piece of vague movie marketing/promotion. I'm too lazy to figure out what movie it's trying to sell, so I'm turning it over to you, you princes of Maine you kings of New England you sleuths of Blogtown. Want to help me solve this sure-to-be disappointing mystery? Hit the jump for more details and photos, Columbo!

I get great/stupid promotional items sent to me by studios all the time, such as my Beowulf fake-fur blanket, my fake Indiana Jones bullwhip, my short-lived There Will Be Blood milkshake, and Olive's Fantastic Mr. Fox necktie. Today I got the latest bit of promojunk, which, rather than being branded with various logos, is instead purposefully vague. Here are the photos/viral marketing clues:

Have at with your deductions in the comments below, Blogtown Mystery Team™! And here's something worth noting: After looking at this stuff a bit more closely, I'm now 99 percent sure that I've figured out what movie it's promoting. First person to correctly guess it below wins themselves... well, I was going to say "wins themselves a bloody funnel," but it looks like Patrick's already made off with it for his personal use. So I guess you'll just "win" the "satisfaction of playing along with some studio's elaborate marketing scheme." That's kind of rewarding, right?
