Okay. How many of you eagle-eyed Lost watchers saw the commercial for the Hanso Foundation. Yes, the foundation that is sponsoring the Dharma project on the island??? If you still have the episode on your tape or DVR, it aired in the commercial break after Mr. Eko and John viewed the 'Orientation' tape. At the end of the orientation tape, you can see 'brought to you by the Hanso Foundation' or something like that -- I don't really remember what it said, but you do see 'Hanso Foundation'. Then during the commercial break there is a commercial for the Hanso Foundation complete with web address and toll free phone number. I haven't called the number, but I did check out the web site. I don't know if I should say anything else until y'all get a chance to see the commercial. There were some obvious giveaways in the commercial and some not so obvious ones on the web site. (Nothing that explained anything in the show!!) The people that have those obsessive fan sites are going to have a ball with this!

I am not an avid Lost watcher - I'm afraid if I ever started, I'd be completely hooked & then ticked because nothing is ever solved...LOL

September went farther than I did with it!! I'll have to go back to the site and look around some more. There are a lot of things to look at/click on so it will have to be a time when I can disappear with the computer for a while!

One thing I did notice, the announcer in the commercial pronounced the web site 'sub-lime-onal' and in small print on the bottom of the screen it says 'Sponsored by Sprite'. I'm not sure how/why Sprite got into this!!

Here's the stuff if you didn't see the commercial:

I don't like to think of myself as a fanatic (Yea! So why am I always here!?!?!), but this looks like a fun way to waste an afternoon!

Holy crap! Ok...I went to the site again, the Hanso Foundation and I went to the sign up for newsletter. Put in my name, it asked if I could read this and I said yes, asked for the password.....I put in the CODE from the game...and it told me to call the number in the TV commercial!! So we are getting ready to call again!

Ok, I called again and I can say...call and listen to each of the recordings for each person! You get a recording for the Verizon message center and then they break in with stuff. There are many things the say with weird ad break ins...monster.com....Korean Offshore Project....and Whitmore Corporation....I'm not sure what all is there, its hard to hear it all.
