What seems to be a new ‘viral’ campaign just launched with a Google ad that leads to this site.
It seems to be a promotion for “The Observation Room“, a film by Shep Salusky that pretends to be an educational film by “Western States Continuing Education” supposedly to be “viewed only by mental health professionals including lawyers, physicians, psychologists and certain mental health professionals”. It is referred to as “The Greenan Tapes” on all the other sites, but if you note the cast (?) member named “Terisa Greenan” you start to get the picture.
The film is supposedly ‘real footage’ of therapy session at a therapy clinic showing the therapist ‘ruining the life’ of a patient. It is obviously not a real tape.
I’m writing this post despite this obvious marketing ploy, just because I like independent cinema. But maybe this film’s listing on IMDb is just the first part of a bigger viral campaign? Who knows? ;)
