Much like the various 'Prometheus'-based virals of late that are marketing fictional company Weyland Industries around the web the marketing team behind upcoming action-horror sequel 'Resident Evil: Retribution' have decided to go along the same route. That pesky Umbrella Corporation and their 'official site' has begun posting interesting viral videos, one of which is a new sugary employee orientation clip which mentions word of a upcoming mobile recruiting tour. The site lists various locations and dates where this tour will take place listing Cannes as one of the recent notable events. The clip, however, is interupted at various points by a signal hacked stream featuring Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) warning us of the evil of Umbrella. The sequel out in September also stars Boris Kodjoe ('Resident Evil: Afterlife'), Kevin Durand ('Lost'), Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil'), Johann Urb ('1408'), Bingbing Li, Colin Salmon ('Exam'), Sienna Guillory and Oded Fehr. 'Resident Evil: Retribution' hits theatres on 14 September and you can check out the full Umbrella press release below.
"Umbrella Corporation, one of the world's leading biotechnology conglomerates, has unleashed a globe-spanning recruiting tour to find the world's greatest minds to make advancements for the betterment of all mankind in the fields of biotechnology and genetic research. The tour kicks off in Cancun, Mexico in April 2012 and ends in Tokyo, Japan in September.
Founded by Ozwell E. Spencer and Edward Ashford, Umbrella Corporation is best known for creating Aqua Cure®, an ointment that rapidly heals open wounds. Utilizing products that are home grown in Raccoon City, Umbrella Corporation has since opened operations around the world and created many life-altering pharmaceutical products including Adravil®, Regenerate® and Return®.
"At Umbrella Corporation, we believe that nothing is impossible", said Christopher Chung, President of world-wide recruiting at Umbrella Corporation. "While we employ some of the world's best scientific minds, we are excited to hit the road and find talent that can help us shape the future of humanity."
To accomplish this unprecedented recruiting tour, a state-of-the-art vehicle has been created that will makes its way from location to location by land and sea. The vehicle is equipped with a fully functional research laboratory that will be manned by famous Umbrella Corporation scientists Dr. Henrik Markarian, Dr. James Safechuck, and Dr. Joshua Golsen.
"What will the world be like tomorrow?" Umbrella Corporation's Chief Operations Officer, Michelleanne Grepo, asks. "Thanks to Umbrella Corporation, 'tomorrow' is no longer a dream, but a reality today."
