Okay, so it does get weirder. The hackers continue to threaten, escalating until they literally have to resort to claiming every theater in the United States that shows this film is in danger. We're supposed to take this seriously?
To make it even more interesting, it sounds like North Korea is, in fact, centrally involved in the hacks. So what does a threat of violence against the American populace amount to? An act of war? What are the next steps for the U.S.?
And then we have Sony, cowering in the corner like a puppy that just got yelled at. Read their limp, utterly asinine response:
It appears these hackers absolutely succeeded in destroying Son'y spirit and morale. What do they stand for now?
Love that last line, though. Really drives the irony home.
