We had a lot of things on our wishlist for Mockingjay promotion, and right at the top of it was to incorporate the hacking storyline. And it’s been fun to watch so far.
We got Beetee hacking the Capitol propaganda.
THE MOCKINGJAY LIVES. YES.
Then a surprise hacking of the notes of the Mockingjay tune on twitter.

THE MOCKINGJAY SINGS. YES.
And then the source code of thecapitol.pn said this:
THE MOCKINGJAY LIVES. Well you already told us that, but we understand. It’s a rallying cry and a dope hashtag. SO YES. GOOD.
And then last week the Capitol Concerns page changed from “The Capitol is Listening” to “The Capitol is Lying.”
DAMN STRAIGHT, THEY LIE.
Update: A few minutes after I originally posted this, the skins on the social media accounts were changed to this.
AHHH. MORE PROGRESS.
A slow and steady wearing down of the defenses, led by that genius Beetee over the past month. The question we want to know now is WHEN IS THE BIG PAYOFF? And perhaps WHAT IS THE BIG PAYOFF being the secondary question.
For me, I just really want some legit rebel propaganda, and specifically that’s Katniss in the Cinna-designed Mockingjay suit. If you squint when Katniss is walking through the hospital you can get an idea of it.
It’s hard to tell since the hospital is dark, her suit is dark, and it’s a wide shot. But it looks really form-fitting, and like armor (thankfully, effective armor, cause, you know. District 2). It seems like Beetee has gotten quite adept at getting through the Capitol’s security. And he’s certainly got our attention.
Now we’re ready to be inspired.
