The Matrix Resurrections has chosen a rather…unusual way to show teasers for this new film to their fans. If you head on over to a specific website called, you’re given 2 choices: the red pill, or the blue pill. All of you Matrix fans would note that this is the exact same choice Neo has to make in the films.

In this case, which pill you take determines what teaser you see for The Matrix Resurrections. The red pill gives you a teaser with what sounds like Neo (Keanu Reeves) telling you to rise up and break free of your false reality. The blue pill gives you yet another teaser, this time with an Agent Smith-like voice telling you to stay comfortable in the “truth”. This, by itself, would be a pretty cool premise, but it goes further than that. The teasers actually note what time you access it, right down to the minute. Even better: there are subtle variations between teasers depending on the exact time you click on each pill. It produces a sensation as eerie as it is intriguing.
